Performance tennis programme

St Andrews offers a world-leading academic education alongside a professionally run performance tennis programme, supported by the LTA and Tennis Scotland – boasting an excellent support system for tennis in educational settings.

Led by Director of Tennis Claire McCulloch, we aim to deliver a comprehensive programme of training, competition, and support to enable our top student players to harness their full potential and achieve sporting and academic excellence whilst studying at St Andrews.

Through the performance programme we seek to support our top performing athletes who demonstrate exceptional skill on the court, and who are dedicated to their own personal development and that of their teammates. We want the programme to help shape players into high performers both on and off the court, whilst enabling them to gain valuable skills that will be transferable after graduation.

Scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance tennis programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

With top-class facilities, history, tradition and a modern, professionally run high performance tennis programme, you will find everything you need at St Andrews to take your game and your education to the highest level as part of the truly unique student experience.
