About Us

About Us

Emirates Tennis Academy (ETA) was established in 2007 at Safa Park through the partnership of Ahmed Abdul-Malik, the vice-president of UAE tennis federation, and Jean-Francois Danican, the former head Tennis coach of Al Wasl Sports club in Dubai.

We started with 3 tennis courts, but have grown steadily over the years thanks to the sterling quality of our services.   We now offer coaching and instruction in seven strategic locations around the UAE.


Our Team

Our people are our greatest asset and biggest differentiator. They also believe in having a lot of fun along the way.
