ITF Training Centres

The ITF operates three 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 Training Centre in Lautoka, Fiji, the ITF/CAT Training Centre in Casablanca, Morocco or the ITF/CAT East Africa Training Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. 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.

ITF/OTF Pacific Oceania Regional Training Centre, Lautoka, Fiji

Players training at the centre in Fiji are accommodated in the ITF House, attend school and participate in a full week’s training programme incorporating two daily on-court sessions and regular fitness training sessions. The players also have the opportunity to be selected for ITF regional junior teams, which compete in higher level events in Australia and New Zealand in January and December.

ITF/CAT Training Centre, Casablanca, Morocco

In January 2013, the ITF opened a new training centre in Casblanca, Morocco. Players practice at the OCP Club, which is located close to the centre and has five hectares of sports ground, eight tennis courts, a swimming pool, soccer fields and basketball courts.
