  • Very relaxed atmosphere

Negative Values

Lluís Bruguera, renowned ex-tennis player and father of another ex-player Sergi Bruguera, founded the academy and designed the training programme. He has had long experience training tennis players to high level, captained the Spanish Davis Cup team and has also been technical director in a number of tennis federations, including the Spanish Tennis Federation.

The academy has its own education centre which provides secondary education and Baccalaureate (in English and Spanish). This means that students can combine academic studies with their tennis coaching. 

*Available programmes

Annual Programme: 10 months (from September to June). Students can also be enrolled into the academic study programme at the school located on the campus.

Bruguera Tennis Academy

The Bruguera high performance academy uses its own training method created by the founder Lluís Bruguera. The programme is aimed at optimising the performance of young tennis players to help them reach their maximum potential.

Coaching sessions take place between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday. On Saturdays players have the opportunity to work on particular aspects of their own game and Sunday is a rest day (on weekends when there is no tournament taking place).

The training sessions are generally divided into two parts:

There are three hours of court-based coaching dedicated to technical-tactical skills/footwork and two and a half hours of physical training.

The rest of the afternoon is devoted to academic study (secondary school/ Baccalaureate). Students attend the school located next to the academy.

Tournaments

All students who register at the academy for a period of more than two weeks will also have the chance to take part in tournaments in accordance with their age and tennis skill level. Students will always be accompanied at tournaments by their coach. The academy organises registration and transport to and from the tournaments.

The Bruguera method

This very successful method works on the sporting and personal aspects of the student within an integrated training programme. It’s not just about training students in sporting skills but also facilitating their personal and academic development.

On the other hand we also work in detail on technical skills, tactical ability and mental strength. The objective is to achieve automation in the strokes and this comes about by intensive practice and drills.

This training is carried out in combination with tournament participation within and outside the academy so the participants can develop their competitive spirit. The type and number of tournaments in which players take part will depend on their age and skill level. These may take place at the academy or at a neighbouring club but we also organise participation in tournaments at a regional, national and even international level.

The coach accompanies the players and supervises them during the tournament. Another of the crucial aspects which makes the Bruguera academy so special is the atmosphere and environment. It’s very important that the young people are comfortable in their surroundings and all the staff work hard to ensure students feel at home. Each year there are 40-50 students participating in the annual programme plus more taking part in the weekly courses. Academy staff know students by name and offer them care and support so that the academy feels like a big extended family.

Bruguera Tennis Academy

Participants who want to combine tennis coaching with academic study can do this at the school which is located on the same site as the academy.

This centre offers the option of taking courses from basic secondary education to Baccalaureate and is suitable for pupils from 12 to 18 years of age.

The academy also offers the chance to enrol in a course from the American educational system.

The courses are delivered in Spanish and English. Students who don’t speak Spanish will receive an intensive course in the language.

Classes are small and students receive a lot of individual attention. The sports and academic programmes are well coordinated, enabling participants to do their tennis coaching and continue with their education at the same time.

The academic study takes place in the late afternoon, from 5pm, once the daily sports coaching is finished and students have had a chance for a short meal break.
