Training

  • Training: 30 hrs./week
  • Players per coach: Four

The summer camp at the Juan Carlos Ferrero Equelite Academy is open to all levels (including beginners). It offers 30 hours a week of coaching divided into personalised sessions in the morning and afternoon. This personalised training means that the coaches work with no more than four players at one time. The academy is also the only one in Spain with an innovative system of intelligent video analysis called Playsight, which studies each player so they can analyse their game and work on correcting their errors.

Playsight uses statistics based on all aspects of the game (including spin, speed, height above the net  …). Participants who participate for two weeks (or more) will be entitled to a diploma and a report from their coaches (tennis and physical condition) outlining their attainment, with comparative tests which monitor their development and contain multiple recommendations for their future improvement.

Training Facilities

The complex where the academy is located, considered one of the best in the country as evidenced by its many awards, comprises 120.000m2 with unbeatable sports facilities, which allow the development of this intense summer tennis and paddle programs.

Among these, the following stand out:

  • ten clay courts
  • eight hard courts
  • a central hard court
  • an indoor hard court
  • three indoor paddle tennis courts
  • two outdoor paddle tennis courts

In addition, there is a beach tennis-volley court, a 400m running circuit, a soccer field with natural grass, a 9-hole Pich & Putt golf course, a driving range, a gym and an equipped physiotherapy clinic.

Language Classes

  • Hours per week: 5 hours
  • Children per class: Four

Why not take advantage of your son or daughter’s stay at the academy to give them a boost to their language skills. This summer camp offers the option to include lessons in English, French or Russian. Classes are delivered by experienced bilingual teachers. Classes are small, with a maximum of four students, and thus students have a very personalised learning experience. As with the sports programme, lessons are delivered in a fun and engaging way.

Language classes take place each day for one hour from Monday to Friday, with the possibility of increasing the amount of hours with private lessons (although this option may impact on their sports coaching). The timing of the classes depends on the language level of the student: taking place either between the morning coaching and lunch or the afternoon coaching and dinner.

Camp Schedule

*Optional English, French or Russian classes take place between morning coaching and lunch/afternoon coaching and dinner (depending on the level of the student)

No successful sports camp is complete without a dynamic social programme, a key element to enabling the young people to relax and recharge their batteries after their intense days of sport. As well as the training staff, the Juan Carlos Ferrero Equelite Academy has a team of monitors who are experienced at organising social programmes containing a range of activities which will make the camp an unforgettable experience for the young participants. These include arts and crafts and other sports such as football or water polo.

The monitors are also guided by the preferences of the young people, making this camp even more of a personalised experienced. On Saturdays internal tennis tournaments are organized and on Sundays there are ‘bonding’ exercises to help the young people get to know their camp mates as well as other options for participants to relax before the busy sporting week begins again. There are plenty of breaks throughout the day. Training sessions include a 10 minute break in the morning and afternoon. There are 75 minutes for lunch and dinner respectively. In their free time, there are many options for participants to unwind in the fantastic Mediterranean sun, such as enjoying a swim, playing football etc.

Excursions

Every alternate Sunday participants have the chance to go on a full day excursion. The fantastic location of the academy means there is a wide range of places to visit. Typical excursions include visits to an acquatic park, Atalaya Castle or a trip to the beach to take a dip in the Mediterranean. The outings are a great way for participants to get to know their campmates and have a great time before they begin another intensive week of sport.
