In the heart of Westchester County, Tennis Innovators Academy trains high performance students of all ages aspiring to reach NCAA collegiate level, ITF, and ATP/WTA professional level. Our coaches provide on-court training that is focused and intensive, while balanced with off-court mental and physical conditioning that is unparalleled in the industry.
After 14 years of coaching, managing and launching the John McEnroe Tennis Academy in Eastchester, New York, Cesar Andrade and Vladimir Margalitadze partnered together to take the next steps in their careers to open their own academy, Tennis Innovators Academy (TIA) in 2015.
Both reached their tennis peak at the Nick Bollettieri Academy, now known as IMG Sports Academy. Having experienced a world class environment and playing the ATP professional circuit and NCAA collegiate tennis, together they bring the knowledge and experience required to train students to their highest potential.
Since 2009, Cesar and Vlad continue to groom players of all ages and levels in the Westchester County area. Their expectations from their students and coaching staff are held to the highest standards with 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/NAIA collegiate level and ATP/WTA professional level. Through the rigorous training regimen, players learn to become true professionals both on and off the court. Perseverance, discipline, organization, mental and physical strength, coupled with hard work are just a few examples of life lessons taught at TIA.
TIA helps connect those seeking scholarship opportunities with NCAA/NAIA university coaches through our College Recruiting Program. To be able to play tennis in the collegiate circuit, while acquiring a higher learning degree, positions the athletic student with a promising future.

HIGH PERFORMANCE ACADEMY (Group Class)
Our High Performance Academy (HP) builds players through strong work ethic, discipline and fundamentals to develop a complete game.
Through specifically targeted exercises, TIA trainers work with each player to help them achieve their physical goals they have set for themselves. A combination of a positive atmosphere, camaraderie and hard work, will help each player reach their peak performance.
The eastern division offers a rigorous schedule of tournaments for students to participate in during their training at TIA. Students are expected to participate in 2-3 tournaments per month.
UTR VERIFIED MATCHPLAY
TIA is a verified UTR, Universal Tennis Rating, Academy. The UTR system uses a 16-level scale (from beginners to elite world-class professionals), precisely and reliably to determine individual players’ ratings based on actual match results without regard for age, gender or where the matches are played. As such, TIA uses the UTR platform to organize and verify all Sunday matchplay.
College tennis is a goal for many players and parents, and at TIA we pride ourselves in maintaining an exceptional college placement program which helps students achieve both educational and athletic goals.
