Great Tennis Fundamentals Start Here! Check out our recent results:

Established in 1992, we are proud to be the industry leaders in Central Ohio.
Our team of coaches has developed over 500 juniors all the way from their very first clinic to becoming successful
middle school, high school and lifetime tennis players. Over 50 have been high school State Qualifiers,
7 have won State Championships, 23 have become collegiate players (three at OSU). 
NATC is the only club in history to have two players from their junior program
go on to become #1 in the USA in Singles in D-1 College Tennis, (Peter Kobelt, OSU & Francesca DiLornezo, OSU).

Four players who learned how to play tennis at NATC currently have world rankings the ATP / WTA Pro Tours.
And we are just as serious with our adults and seniors, having developed many adult beginners from 2.5 to 4.0 level players in ony 2-3 years.
It always goes back to the fundamentals!
Whether You Just Want to Play for Fun or Get Serious,
Just imagine what we can do for YOUR game!

ATGBusiness Travel Management

Welcome to our Corporate Partner, Allstars Travel Group!

 "Business Travel Management"


  Changing the Game of Business Travel.

ATG, a New Albany based company founded in 1995, has been managing all of the US and international travel for numerous large and small companies, and since 2014, NATC's ATP and WTA touring professionals.

 One of the challenges of being a tennis coach is that it takes 10-15  years, working with the same group of students, to find out how good your teaching system and clinic instruction really is. 

Are the fundamentals you give your students in the 10 & Under clinics good enough for them to reach their fullest potential, even make it to the Pro Tour?

At Kobelt Tennis Academy, we know that the answer is YES! 

We are proud to be the only tennis program in Central Ohio developing players with the  advanced skill set required to compete with the top players in the world at the pro level.

We are also the only tennis program in Central Ohio teaching
one-handed backhands to some of our top juniors, with 3 becoming
Top D-1 college players.

 Adults and juniors, if you want to become the best you can be, we invite you to come train with us.

Our teaching system is truly unique and constantly evolving. Our continuing education is based on best practices and  comes from collaboration with many of the top coaches in the US and Europe.

We do not require our students to take private lessons; our clinics feature extensive technical instruction.

We specialize in working with players of all ages and levels, the younger the better, starting at age 4, with our top goal being to share our passion for the game with them.

We also offer the only year-round public tennis program in Columbus! You don't have to get an expensive membership to an indoor club.

Kobelt Tennis Academy has been proudly developing many of Central Ohio's top players since 1992. 

 Many coaches train their players to win when they are younger, skipping over some critical skills for short term results.

  Our philosophy is to train you to be playing your best tennis in the 18's and beyond.

You only get to learn tennis once, since it is such a complex muscle memory sport.

Why take a chance? Get it right the first time at Kobelt Tennis Academy.
