Elite Academy


The Academy offers four distinct levels of coaching and training.


We run 8 week training programs that coincide with each school term to establish targeted and specific training blocks. In addition to our core squads, we offer specialised clinics and tours throughout the year depending on the Annual Calendar of Events and Tournaments.

Program Enrolment
Step 1: Contact Matthew Teivans or Theo Dalkos to discuss the needs of your child/athlete and have the ATA difference fully outlined.

Step 2: Arrange for your child/athlete to have an on court assessment to establish your child/athletes current ability level physically, technically and tactically.

Step 3: If the coaches and program at Adelaide Tennis Academy is the right option for your child/athlete then discuss which of our training programs is the most suitable, after school, part time, full time, etc whichever suits and then either:

  1. Discuss what level of program is suitable for your athlete/child based on age and ability.
  2. If suitable discuss timetable options to our FLEXI program.
  3. If applicable outline details and expectations to our FULL TIME program.

Places in all our programs are at the sole discretion of Adelaide Tennis Academy and are strictly limited. Enrolments are available at anytime throughout the year.

Step 4: Your ATA Journey begins.


Payments And Refunds Policy

Full payment is required by the start of the new term. If the terms of the account exceed 7 days from the Invoice Payment Due Date your place in the program may be lost. No refunds will be given for non-attendance. A refund or credit may be offered if you have a valid medical reason.

Method of Payment

Payments must be made by Direct Debit (details on the invoice), cheque made payable to “Matthew Teivans” or cash.

Late Payments

If payment is not made on time or an arrangement has not been made by contacting Adelaide Tennis Academy beforehand, your child may be removed from the class list.

Privacy Policy

Adelaide Tennis Academy will only store information relevant for coaching and billing purposes and this information is only accessible by the Director. Private information will never be shared with a third party or advertising agency.

Weather Policy

Excessive heat/wet weather: Lessons may be cancelled if the temperature at the venue is, in our judgment, likely to be excessively hot or too wet during the lesson time. Athletes will receive a make up lesson on weekends or in the holidays. Because we run to a specific 8 week course we feel it is better to make up the session and achieve the session outcomes rather than just putting together a makeshift/on the spot lesson due to weather.

Missed Class/Absent Policy

Make up lessons are permitted under the following conditions only: Absences must be communicated to Adelaide Tennis Academy 24 hours prior to the lesson. Courtesy make up lessons are offered by Adelaide Tennis Academy during the school term at Collingrove Tennis Club by appointment only and if class size permits. If the child does not attend the offered make up lessons, lessons will be lost. Make up lessons are not transferable to other terms or participants. Public Holidays/Long Weekends Policy There will be no coaching offered on public holidays. In the event of a public holiday, a make up lesson will be scheduled.

Injury Policy

Adelaide Tennis Academy will act according to their best judgment in any emergency requiring medical attention. Adelaide Tennis Academy are not liable for injury or illness and subsequent costs incurred while undertaking a program or event.
