ABOUT SILVA TENNIS ACADEMY

Led by former ATP professional tennis player, Victor Silva, Silva Tennis Academy is focused on training professional skills to players of all skill levels and ages. We teach a range of solid all-around tennis fundamentals, holistically building a player’s foundation: fundamentals, strategy, mental fitness, physical fitness, sportsmanship and life skills. While most of our athletes are focused on competing in junior, high school, and college competitive environments, we have many adults playing at various competitive levels as well.

OUR VISION

We are focusing our academy on being professional, competitive and international, after all, we’re originally from Brazil. Our goal is to bring players from different states and countries, especially players from Brazil who don’t have a lot of international tennis opportunities, to come here and train with us to learn professional skills and to interact with different cultures. We want our athletes to come to our academy and feel like they’re part of a tennis family and feel like they have coaches who understand them and want to see the best in them. We especially want to give those who don’t have the opportunity in other countries, to come here and get a realistic chance to attend college or even go pro.

Testimonials

I’ve been going to Silva Academy for five months and I have learned so many professional skills from the coaches that has helped me not only as I train to play 50 and older ITF matches, but also life skills of patience, working the point and staying positive. What I love the most about Silva Academy is that the coaches genuinely care about my progress; even though I’m an older adult, they create a great family environment that I haven’t experienced since I was in high school sports.
Through the help of Victor and all the coaches, all the work that I’ve put into at the academy is really paying off. As a freshman at Wilson High I am the only freshman selected to be on the girls singles varsity team. I have so much confidence in my game

Victor sees how each player performs in a variety of situations on and off the court and gears his coaching to meet the needs of each player. Not only does the academy work us physically, but mentally as well. I think that makes his program better than the others.

My daughter Amelia has been with Silva Tennis Academy since 2019. Victor’s coaching style, focused on skills, fitness and fun, have improved my daughter’s game immensely. Amelia was able to see the positive results of joining Silva Tennis almost immediately. Her attitude towards going to practice changed as a result of the positive, non-judgmental atmosphere on and off the court. His focus on hard work and life skills has allowed her to use new skills in her school team tennis and outside tournaments. Victor and his family of coaches care about the students and want to help them succeed in their tennis journey no matter what their skill level.
