When making the big decision to attend university or go pro straight away I leaned heavily on Mark Finnegan to help guide me through the process. As a result of his guidance I was fortunate enough to achieve both. I will be forever grateful to Mark and strongly advise people to avail of Irelands premier sports recruiting agency.

I would highly recommend using the recruiting services of All Sports recruitment.

It provided me with the tools and experience to help my tennis reach its full potential as well as obtaining a degree for the future.I have no doubt that Mark Finnegan with all of his contacts and experience as a college coach can give our future tennis players an edge in the recruitment process while also helping make the process less daunting.
