Welcome to the Tennis Academy!

"Yes" says Jim, "tennis for all - that's the message we're keen to put across."

Jim Stewart - Tennis Pro

Think of a sport that is very popular in the Algarve, has a club social scene and can be played by those well beyond middle age? Chances are you'll be thinking of golf.

But pay a visit to Jim Stewart's Tennis Academy (JSTA) in Quinta do Lago and you'll find a relaxed oasis, where people of all ages and abilities come together to enjoy not only the tennis but the social scene too. From juniors to those of retirement age, many are attracted to a sport that is fun, challenging - and provides great exercise.

It's a winning combination, and on any given day you'll find a real mix of ages and standards. On one court, one of Jim's coaches is instructing a newcomer on the basics; on the next a couple of talented youngsters are energetically slamming balls at each other; whilst on another a foursome of seniors are reaching the end of a friendly doubles - rounded off with some welcome refreshments at the bar.
