IMPACT Tennis Academy
Based on the grounds surrounding the world class Impact arena where the likes of Mariah Carey, The Rolling Stones, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Beyoncé have performed as well as the site of the ATP Bangkok comes the Impact Tennis Academy established in 2013.
With US$2 million of renovations and upgrading works, this state of the art tennis academy was designed to fulfill the demand for a world class academy in Asia. IMPACT Tennis Academy has experiences, knowledge and facilities for competitive tennis players with the right attitude to congregate and chase their dreams of succeeding in tennis.
In 2019, we were named by Functional Tennis to be one of the best tennis academies in the World. We are the only academy in the region to make this prestigious list. We were selected based on
• coach to player ratio
