The Training

During the training sessions, students will learn different types of serves, how to move on the court and how to execute different shots. In addition, they will attend classes where they are taught mental techniques - for example, how to help withstand pressure at major tournaments and competitions.

  • 20-40 hours of training a week
  • Physical and mental training
  • Video analysis to help correct faults
  • Between 12 and 15 tournaments
  • Periodical physical tests to check the condition and potential of each player

The Coaches

The training is directed by certified professionals who have prepared many high-profile tennis players - including Elina Svitolina, Jelena Dokic or Alexandre Lacroix - for the physical and mental challenges of the game.

The Club

The Mouratoglou Tennis Academy was established in 1998 and became the first European organization to facilitate university scholarships for young tennis players.

The training principle at the Mouratoglou Academy is based on the law of effort - that is to say, to achieve your dreams, you first have to make an effort and believe in yourself, only then can you become an artist.

To achieve this objective, the Mouratoglou organizers understand that you can not only focus on teaching tennis to the students. They also promote weekends of integration, where challenges are set in the water, in the forest or in the mountains. In addition, mental workshops, theatre classes and other creative activities are also arranged.
