Florida Tennis SBT Tennis Academy, formerly the Harold Solomon Tennis Institute, was established in 2005 by Fort Lauderdale's legendary tennis player and coach Harold Solomon and his business partner Larry Kashdin. In January 2017, Trey Buchholz, a member of one of America's most renowned tennis families, merged his academy with Solomon Tennis, and became a full partner in the renamed venture. The Academy has been highly successful developing elite junior players, who have gone on to successful playing careers at some of the country's finest institutions and collegiate programs, including Princeton, Rice, UCLA, the University of Florida, the University of Miami and Vanderbilt. The academy now offers USTA programs for grade school age players, and well as for junior players who desire less intense training. It will soon launch additional programs for both junior and adult players, featuring the Academy's world-class coaching staff.
