After 14 years of experience coaching, managing and eventually launching John McEnroe Tennis Academy in Eastchester, NY, Cesar Andrade and Vladimir Margalitadze partnered up to take the next step in their tennis careers and launched Tennis Innovators Academy (TIA) in White Plains, New York in 2015.
Back in 2009, Cesar Andrade and Vladimir Margalitadze united forces and have been grooming tennis players of all ages in the Wetchester, NY area ever since. Both Cesar and Vladimir reached the peak of their tennis careers training at the Nick Bollettieri Academy, now known as IMG Tennis Academy. Having experienced a world class environment and reached the ATP professional level and NCAA collegiate tennis level they bring the knowledge and experience required to train students to their highest potential.
Cesar and Vladimir’s expectations from TIA students and coaching staff are held to the highest standards with a fast paced “New York” hard working attitude and energy that serves as a perfect combination for discipline and development.
TIA trains high performance students of all ages aspiring to reach NCAA collegiate level and ATP/WTA professional level. While doing so, players are learning to be true professionals on and off the court due to the demands of the training regimen which exposes players to life related challenges like perseverance, discipline, timeliness, mental strength, body language, and the true concept of hard work.
Lastly, our College Recruiting Department helps develop relationships with NCAA and NAIA university coaches to create scholarship opportunities to play the prestigious collegiate circuit in the United States while acquiring bachelor degrees and a higher level education to set up their future.
TIA hopes to get the chance to provide your player a once in a lifetime experience with networking avenues that can positively change their future!
