Welcome to Murray's Match Tough Tennis Academy at Forsyth Country Day!

Murray's Match Tough Tennis Academy is run by the unique brother combination of Mike and RJ Murray. Mike is a former #1 junior player from the state of Florida as well as one of the first big tennis recruits to play for Wake Forest University, and RJ is a former national junior singles and doubles champion who played for both North Carolina State and the University of Alabama Tennis Teams. Having played at the highest junior and collegiate levels, the Murray's bring their passion for the game and enthusiasm for working with kids to one of the nicest tennis facilities in Winston-Salem located on the property Forsyth Country Day School in Lewisville, North Carolina.

Murray's Match Tough Tennis Academy opened in September of 2007 with the goal of helping aspiring young tournament players to achieve their potential both on and off the court and to also promote the sport of tennis across all age levels and abilities. Mike and RJ grew up with tennis rackets in their hands on the courts of their father's country club in Florida where they have watched their father direct a thriving adult and junior tennis program for over 30 years. With their father's knowledge of how to teach the fundamentals of the game, combined with an intense work ethic they have adopted from their long time junior tennis coach Billy Stearns of the Smith Stearns Tennis Academy, Mike and RJ have set out to create a training experience for their students that is both rewarding and fun.

Our facility at Forsyth Country Day school consists of nine blue on green hard courts all equipped with lights and seating.  Full service locker rooms with showers are available immediately behind the courts in our football field house.  We offer daily and monthly rates; private, semi-private(two people), and group lessons; group and private tournament coaching; racket stringing; strength training; and regular group clinics for kids of all ages ranging from beginner all the way up to aspiring collegiate tennis players.

Having experienced first hand the type of hard work and determination it takes to be successful in this sport, Mike and RJ bring a youthful perspective to the junior tennis training experience with the hopes of teaching their students what it really means to be a competitive athlete!
