Players will live, train and socialise with native English speaking players resident on camp, ensuring they are immersed in English culture throughout their stay. Designed by former ATP and ITF professionals, the tennis programme offers an insight into what it's like to live and train like a professional tennis player.
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 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 equipped with the skills and insight to continue their development as a tennis player long after the camp has finished. Each player gets a one-to-one review with their coach and their English teacher at the end of the camp and receives an individual coaching report and an English report to take home.
