The ITF operates four regional training centres that offer excellent tennis facilities, coaching, competition, and schooling, with more centres planned in other regions.
Talented players from the relevant regions may attend the ITF/SATA Training Centre in Pretoria, South Africa; the ITF Training Centre in Lautoka, Fiji; the ITF/FTB Training Centre in Bujumbura, Burundi or the ITF/CAT Training Centre in Casablanca, Morocco. An initial stay is normally for a period of one month and stays of more than one month are by invitation only. A certain number of very talented players may attend on a full-time residential basis and in some cases ITF or Olympic Solidarity scholarships can be awarded.

The centre is located in Hatfield, a short distance from the High Performance Centre at the University of Pretoria, South Africa and uses the facilities at the university.
