What tennis camps we offer in Spain?
In Spain we offer 3 tennis camps, one in the capital (Madrid) and two others located in the littoral zone of the Mediterranean, which ensures good weather throughout the whole year, in other words, a perfect environment for the practice of outdoor tennis courts.
- These are camps:
- Juan Carlos Ferrero Camp: located in Alicante, bears the name of this great tennis player since it was in this academy where he was brought up and managed to get to the top of the tennis elite, being number one in the world of the ATP in 2003.
- Sanchez Casal Camp: located in El Prat de Llobregat (Barcelona).It is a high-performance camp that features high-level coaches like, for example, the one of the mythical Spanish tennis player who gave us so much joy throughout her career, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.
- Carlos Moyá Camp: This camp is located in Madrid, academy named after its director, Carlos Moyá, one of the great Spanish tennis players (number one of the ATP in 1999) and current captain of the Spanish team of the Davis Cup.
What level is required to access these camps?
There are camps for all tennis levels and for ages between 8 and 18 years. No matter if your child is beginning in this sport or if he or she already has an advanced level and wants to continue to improve his or her technique, the training programs are tailored to each level to get the maximum potential of each student. If you have questions about which camp is best suited to your needs do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to help you choose the best camp for your child.
How many hours of training do young people in the camp perform?
Each camp has a different program. There are camps that in addition to tennis are also very focused in languages or in other entertainment activities and others that are focused on those students who want to devote a more intensive training and maximize the effective use of time to improve their skills instead of, for example, perform another type of recreational activities typical of the summer camps.
Are English classes provided at the tennis camps?
Of course, in addition to the daily training, English classes are taught at the camps so that the kids can get even more out of their stay at the camp. The classes help young people communicate with their peers from other nationalities and improve their language skills and parents are happy because their children continue to learn during their vacation time, not leaving aside the academic part and improving in something so important to their future as are the languages.
What more can be learned in these camps?
Spending a few weeks in a summer camp, away from their parents and out of their environment, is an experience that brings many positive things to young people. We do not just mean improving in tennis courts or languages, there are many other things that bring value to these camps.
They learn to be independent, to fend for themselves, and they learn about other cultures and languages. Coaches are responsible for instilling all the positive values of sport, for teaching the fighting spirit to continue to improve each day, and they learn to be competitive and strong but also to share and have sportsmanship and respect.
A healthy and fun environment to spend a few unforgettable weeks.
