TEAM BNP PARIBAS MAC 1
The Johnny Mac Tennis Project and John McEnroe Tennis Academy have joined forces with BNP Paribas to support deserving tennis talent who embody the future of tennis.
Together, we're helping the most promising and deserving young American talents to reach the next level. Our Team BNP Paribas Mac 1 program provides year-round training and coaching to young hopefuls, from our home base at Sportime Randall’s Island in New York City.
We support our team members on and off the court, making available financial assistance, to allow intensive training and access to local, national and international competition; and personal assistance in preparing for the demands of collegiate and professional tennis, including image management, educational success, literacy, life-skills and more.

"This scholarship allows me to train with the best coaches and athletes in the area. The coaches provide great instruction while affording me the opportunity to figure out solutions on my own. This approach will help me not only with my pursuit of tennis, but throughout all aspects of my life. I envision tennis taking me well beyond a collegiate pathway. My future goal is to pursue tennis at the professional level. Until then, I will continue to put in the work, and develop my game to the highest level possible.”
