The Nike tennis camp offers two different training programs for students with different skills levels and different overall objectives. The Intensive Tennis program is a high-performance training program for intermediate/advanced tennis players whose main objective is to improve their skills on the court. The Tennis + English program, on the other hand, is for students of all skill levels who want to improve their tennis skills and their English at the same time. Both programs feature a fun and enriching international environment designed to give the students an enjoyable experience abroad as they improve their tennis game.
The Nike tennis camp features an impressive coaching staff. Gill Lemore, a well-trained professional with extensive coaching experience, is the camp’s director. Nicola Slater, a professional doubles player and team instructor with a PTR title, is another key member of the camp’s excellent technical team.
Intensive Tennis program (without English classes)
The Intensive Tennis program is designed for intermediate to advanced tennis players whose main objective is to improve their tennis skills. The program includes 29 hours of complete, high-performance tennis training.
In the Intensive Tennis program, students work on fine-tuning their technique, developing their game strategy, and improving their overall physical fitness. They also learn about nutrition, injury prevention, and how to properly prepare for a match.
In addition, the tennis players are also evaluated individually during the program (including video analysis) so that coaches can correct the specific weaknesses of each player. All in all, students in the intensive tennis program become better and more confident tennis players.
Tennis + English program
The Tennis + English program is for international students of any level who want to improve their tennis game and their English at the same time. Students in this program train for 16.5 hours per week and attend 12.5 hours of English classes.
English classes - Nike tennis camp
The Nike tennis camp in England is the perfect opportunity for international students to experience linguistic immersion and improve their level of English. All training sessions and camp activities take place in English, and the international environment helps students feel safe and secure as they practice with other students who speak English as a second language.
Language classes at Tennis camp
In addition, students who want extra practice can sign up for the Tennis + English program which consists of 12.5 hours of English classes per week. At the start of the program, the participants take an English placement test and are placed in groups based on their level of English. Students learn from highly qualified native English teachers who teach according to the CLIL method (Content and Language Integrated Learning), the method of choice in many of the world’s most prestigious English schools.
The CLIL method features personalized lessons and encourages participation. To maintain the students’ interest and attention, tennis makes up much of the content in the language classes. At the end of the camp, they complete a final course assessment and receive a certificate of participation in the course. They can also take home their assignments that they completed in class to use as study materials in the future.
