Advantages to META vs. Other Tennis Programs:
META is located inside of a private secluded residential community in Kendall. In order to get inside the facility, one has to go through a security guard before entering. We look at this as a tremendous advantage because of the safety it allows our athletes, parents, and personal belongings (ex: valuables left in cars). Everyone that comes into our facility is accounted for, and as a result parents can rest assure that their children will be safe throughout their time at META.
Values & Character Building
At META we feel that the athletes values and character are two essential components to becoming successful in competition and in life. The stronger your character, the more at ease you are and confident during competition and amongst your peers. Therefore, it is a daily goal at META to create a positive and social environment that challenges the athletes to reach their peak capabilities.
META has several ways it provides its athletes to be at their best. For starters, the younger athletes are given daily awards for their behavior, shot making and overall performance. This not only encourages to perform well at practice, it also allows them to customize their own racquets with fun stickers to show their accomplishments. We also hold a fun/competitive tournament at the beginning of every month called the META Tennis Smash to allow all of our beginners and upcoming superstars to test their skills in a competitive environment.
Discipline & Hard Work
Why Play Tennis?
Playing tennis gets you moving, and moving is good for the body and the mind. One of the great things about tennis is that it’s a sport that can be played at nearly any age and at any skill level. Whether you play competitively, for your health or just for fun, tennis has great benefits. Here the reasons why picking up a racquet and hitting the court can have positive impacts on children of all ages and adults:
Excellent Health Benefits
People who participate in tennis three hours per week (at moderately vigorous intensity) can improve and extend their life through exercise, according to physician Ralph Paffenbarger of Harvard University School of Public Health.
Improves The Mind
Tennis players scored higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem while scoring lower in depression, anger, confusion, anxiety and tension than other athletes and non-athletes.
Helps You Lose Weight
Tennis burns more calories than aerobics or cycling, according to studies in caloric expenditures. Also burns fat and improve your cardiovascular fitness and maintain high energy levels.
Teaches Life Management
Tennis allows you to manage mistakes by learning to play within your abilities, and realizing that managing and minimizing mistakes in tennis or life is critical. It also makes you manage adversity by learning to adjust to the elements .
Discipline & Hard Work
Tennis helps children develop work ethic because improvement through lessons or practice reinforces the value of hard work. It develops discipline since you learn to work on your skills in practice and control the pace of play in competition.
Tennis provides all kinds of athletic movements that can be used to be successful in any sport! Through a wide array of different movements on the court, tennis has been proven to improve your acceleration, reaction, speed etc.

What students are saying..
As a lifelong tennis player, I am excited to say META is an amazing tennis academy. Their coaches are excellent and motivating. Both of my younger sisters also play tennis at META and always count down the days until they can be back on the courts. What I like best about META is how prepared they are to teach a beginner’s class for any age and also give a challenging and engaging class for more advanced players. I will definitely be coming back.
Miami Elite Tennis Academy was a great experience! I learned a lot of the fundamentals of tennis as well as match place strategy and a game winning attitude. I strongly recommend Coach Vince and his team of professional tennis instructors.
What schools are saying…
Great coaching, and amazing courts.
You guys rock, keep up the great work you are doing for tennis!
