Who We Are

At HeadStart Tennis Academy we believe that tennis is for everyone!

We support growth in all players. Our academy believes in nurturing athletes of all levels and abilities. Our coaches show our athletes not only how to develop tennis skills, but also to build character through having a strong work ethic, believing in themselves and creating a team-like environment. Not only are we the most successful performance program in Atlantic Canada, but also a fantastic recreational program where kids and adults can learn to play and love the game.

Headstart Tennis Academy is a program provider for the sport of tennis in Nova Scotia. We provide lessons for ages 4 and upward at all skill levels. We are one of the only publicly accessible program providers in Halifax and offer programs year round. In addition to our own programs we are contracted by both Halifax Recreation and Canada Games Centre to run their tennis offerings for them. We work closely with Tennis Nova Scotia to help grow the sport in our province in all ways possible. We also employ only Tennis Canada certified coaches who are members of the Tennis Professionals Association of Canada.

Headstart was established in May 2010 and has been operating continuously and successfully ever since.


Our programs include group, semi-private and private lessons available to all. We have a junior grassroots recreational program as well as a high performance training academy for junior players, easily the most successful in Atlantic Canada. We also have a large adult program from beginners to competitive players.


We are a locally owned and operated partnership, mostly hiring former students whom we have helped develop as coaches. We employ anywhere from 5-10 different coaches throughout the year and also provide volunteer educational opportunities to many of our teenage students who wish to become coaches in the future.
