JOURNEY SO FAR
Our journey began by sponsoring a few tennis players to further their careers outside Nigeria. However, this venture revealed the need for a robust structure and the inculcation of essential values like discipline. This initial setback paved the way for conversations about building robust structures and nurturing homegrown talent. As a result, ATA was born. We started small, scouting across clubs, cells, and programs nationwide and setting up base at the National Stadium in Abuja. We initially recruited three boys and have seen impressive improvements. Over time, we have committed to enhancing our players' holistic development - Education, Dieting, and Tennis.
Our mission at Aurum Tennis Academy is to discover, develop, and actualise tennis talents across various communities. We aim to provide children with the tools needed to reach the pinnacle of tennis as a sport. Our mission goes beyond physical training; we also focus on mental, social, and ethical character development. We strive to instill character-driven traits such as determination, discipline, teamwork, competitiveness, and perseverance. We believe tennis is more than just a sport; it is a catalyst for creating vast opportunities and empowering our athletes academically and socially.
Our vision is to see Nigerian tennis players rise to the top of world tennis, reflecting the talent and potential we know exists within our nation. We envision young Nigerians embracing tennis, becoming more knowledgeable about the world, and changing their lives' trajectory positively through the opportunities this sport presents.
Identify and nurture tennis talent within Nigeria, providing them with the resources and training required to excel.
Develop our athletes holistically, focusing on education, diet, character development, and tennis skills.
