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/FTB Training Centre in Bujumbura, Burundi; the ITF Training Centre in Lautoka, Fiji 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.

ITF/FTB Training Centre, Bujumbura, Burundi

The training centre was officially opened in September 2011 at the Entente Sportif de Bujumbura. The centre contains eight tennis courts as well as on-site accommodation. The centre is primarily for use by East African nations and is supported by the Confédération Africaine de Tennis (CAT) and Tennis Burundi.

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 will 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.
