COACHING

Our coaches are experienced in instructing players with different language capabilities with energy and enthusiasm. Working on every aspect of the game in up to 18 hours of tennis coaching each week coaches use demonstration, practice and feedback to get the best out of players in every session. Grouped by ability and working on a 1:6 coaching ratio sessions focus on skills such as spin, shot selection, power and agility, challenging players at every level. Supporting the on-court training is a series of workshops designed to develop players’ psychology and all-round athleticism.

English

English is taught based on the successful CLIL model used in top schools worldwide. Our qualified English teachers use the sports-motivated environment to engage players in daily English lessons. They use a mix of active participation, project work and traditional classroom-based learning. Players are immersed in English 24 hours a day with all activities on the camp being delivered in English.

 

Results

Players are equipped with the skills and insight to continue their development as a tennis player long after the camp has finished. Their English skills progress through a combination of their English lessons and their exposure to English speaking throughout the camp experience.  Each player gets a one-to-one review with their coach and an individual coaching report as well as a detailed weekly English report to take home. As well as their new found skills, players leave with new friendships from around the world, confidence and memories that last a lifetime.
