Training

  • Semi-intensive training: 2 hours of tennis and 1 hour and a half of fitness a day
  • Intensive training: 4 hours of tennis and 1 hour and a half of fitness, from Monday to Saturday
  • Number of children per group: 4 children

Before arriving at the camp, parents and children must decide what type of training is most suitable for their needs. The Mouratoglou tennis academy offers two options depending on the degree of professionalism and perfection that is desired:

  • Semi-intensive camp
  • Intensive camp

The students are distributed into groups according to the program that is chosen.

Both camps run from Monday until Saturday at noon. The semi-intensive camp includes:

  • Two hours of tennis training per day
  • One and a half hours of practical fitness training per day

The intensive camp provides a greater physical challenge for the students, while helping to improve the technical, tactical and physical aspects of their game. The program includes:

  • Four hours of tennis training per day
  • One and a half hours of fitness training per day

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.

As well a tennis training, there will also be several peer-to-peer tournaments organised where students can put into practice everything they have learned on a daily basis.

The weekly schedule will include:

  • 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.

Language Classes

While practicing their favorite sport, the children may also learn and refine other languages, like English or French. The Mouratoglou tennis Academy promotes a program that can combine sports classes with language classes.

The characteristics of this program are not too far apart from a semi-intensive sports program to an intensive one. In both programs, classes of the language chosen are taught Monday to Saturday for 1.5 hours per day. Of course, depending on the type of program, there will be more or less hours of tennis practice.

To improve learning and individualized attention, a teacher is assigned for every 8 students. In addition, teachers have been teaching these subjects for more than a decade and will regularly inform the parents of the progress of the child.

Total language immersion

  • 1 hour and a half of French or English daily
  • Teachers with more than 10 years of experience in teaching
  • A teacher for every 8 students
  • Monitoring the study and reporting to the parents
  • Tests to review progress

Camp Schedule

The word “boredom” cannot be associated with the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. When there are no tennis training sessions or language classes, there is always some other scheduled activity to keep the students entertained.

The camp managers organize a variety of field trips and games to amuse and stimulate the children during the weekend. In the summer, they may take them to the beach, or pay a visit to Lake St. Cassien. In addition, many sports competitions are organized at the camp.

During the week, when there is no class, the students can make use of wide range of facilities at the camp. They can go for a swim in the pool, watch TV, read books or use their computer to contact their family. They can also enjoy the games room where there are numerous entertainment options.

Entertainment activities may include:

  • Visits to places of interest
  • Trip to the beach
