If you're like most people, chances are you attended a sportime in the last few years. If you're anything like me, you had one burning question as you left after viewing some awesome athletes in action. That question that you asked yourself over and over again was "where are they now"? . I don't know about you but when I was growing up I kept a close eye on the stars I saw perform at sportime. I constantly kept track of their records and how they were doing.


Founded in 2010 at Sportime Randall’s Island, the John McEnroe Tennis Academy provides tennis training to many of NY’s best and highest ranked junior players. Full and partial scholarships are available for qualified and promising young players who could not otherwise afford JMTA participation. JMTA corporate partners Nike and Dunlop provide JMTA students with equipment and apparel for their use, both at the Academy and in tournament play. Lawrence Kleger supervises a team of over 30 instructors, including Associate Academy Director and former ATP player player, Fritz Buehning, former top 100 WTA players Hana Sromova and Martina Sucha, and Assistant Academy Directors Karim Balagh, Bruce Haddad and Nate Emge. John McEnroe is routinely involved in the daily program at Randall’s Island, personally supervising and training staff and coaching and inspiring young players. The Academy’s first two years of operation at Randall’s Island exceeded expectations, with over 400 aspiring future champions enrolled.

NEW YORK, NY, January 25, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Helping young athletes attend the colleges of their choice, on full tennis scholarships whenever possible, is a primary goal of SPORTIME and the John McEnroe Tennis Academy (JMTA). For the second straight year, and with dozens of JMTA students currently competing at top colleges across the country, today the Academy announced the 2017 John McEnroe Tennis Academy College Recruiting Combine, scheduled for the weekend of June 24-25, to be held at SPORTIME Randall's Island, the NYC home of JMTA. The Combine, a big success in its debut last June, will again give selected rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, from around the country and beyond, the opportunity to showcase their technical and tactical tennis skills, as well as their athletic abilities and mental toughness, in front of coaches from top colleges and universities.

On February 14, 2011, WTT announced that the New York Buzz and New York Sportimes had merged with the resulting combined team to be called the New York Sportimes. The team would play five of its seven home matches each season in New York City and the other two at SEFCU Arena in Guilderland, former home of the Buzz. Nitty Singh, founder and longtime owner and general manager of the Buzz said that she wanted to refocus her efforts on two big events rather than operation of a year-round franchise. “We’re taking the fan and sponsor experience to a higher level with two fantastic nights of World TeamTennis action,” said Singh. “It’s a Grand Slam tennis experience. We will have big names coming to Albany each night, and our most loyal fans will follow the team back and forth from New York City. It will be a great new era for World TeamTennis in the Capital Region.”
