The training

Training sessions take place from Monday to Friday for a total of 20 hours per week. The aim of these sessions is not just to improve the players’ technique but also their mental aptitude on court.

On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the content of the sessions is based on basic techniques (rallies, footwork, consistency, cross court shorts and passing shots). On Tuesdays and Thursdays, classes focus on the attacking game (skills, approach shots, volleys and smashes). We also practice the serve on a daily basis.

In the afternoons from 4 to 6pm participants take part in league matches which are organised each week at the camp and also in personalised training sessions, where each player chooses a part of their game they want to practice.
