LIVE LIKE A LONDONER. TRAIN LIKE A PRO.
Train for 3 hours a day at the best tennis venue in England while having the freedom to stay in and explore England's capital city. For 18 - 25 year olds.
THE NATIONAL TENNIS CENTRE
This is the top tennis facility in the UK and home to the national governing body for tennis, the Lawn Tennis Association. The forty-million-pound centre was purpose-built in 2007 to the highest standard, and is used as a training base by many top tennis professionals. Featuring 22 courts on all four Grand Slam surfaces, this is the perfect tennis training facility, on the south-west side of England’s famous capital city. The National Tennis Centre has been hosting Nike Tennis Camps for three years and it's the perfect training base to explore London in the height of summer, just after the Wimbledon Championships.
THE HEART OF LONDON
A coaching-only programme offering you the freedom to stay where you like, enjoying the best that London has to offer during the evenings and on a day-off from tennis in the middle of the programme. Come with a friend and share the experience of a lifetime or come as an individual and we can assist you to get the best out of your experience. You’ll meet and spend time with other individual players joining from across the world and have the option to stay in our local recommended hotel.
EXPERT TENNIS COACHING
The tennis coaching is led and designed by former ATP and ITF professionals and you will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of your game with our highly qualified coaches. You will be challenged technically, tactically and physically during every coaching session and enjoy state of the art video analysis to aid your training. You'll meet other like-minded players from across the world in a truly professional coaching environment.
HOW IT WORKS
You’ll experience training like a professional with 3 hours of coaching a day, set across five days. Stay wherever you choose, whether in a local hotel or in nearby Central London, creating your own unique Nike Tennis experience. You’re welcome to stay at the National Tennis Centre for as long as you like each day to continue your practice and we’ll even run a shuttle service between nearby Barnes station and the National Tennis Centre, giving you easy access back to your chosen accommodation.
Starting on Monday with a welcome meeting and chance to get to know the coaching team and players, you’ll complete your week on the Saturday with a final tournament. Each evening, as well as on your day’s break from training, you’ll be free to experience everything the city of London has to offer from nightlife to historic attractions, theatre, art, shopping and much more. Our staff are on-hand to help with advice on how to get the best out of your London experience. Giving you a zone 1 - 3 travel card means your daily travel to the National Tennis Centre will be free, as well as any evening travel to experience the London nightlife with unlimited buses, tubes and trains in and around central London.
For each of the five days spent training at The National Tennis Centre you will enjoy a complimentary lunch in the National Tennis Centre cafe, designed specifically for the nutritional needs of young athletes. The cafe offers a range of options from hot meat, fish and vegetarian dishes to salad bar and sandwiches.
You can expect to improve your existing skills and develop new ones. Our coaches turn perceived weaknesses into strengths with small technical adjustments. Maintaining a positive attitude, knowing what shot to play and when to play it; a better appreciation of court position and movement, and enhanced tactical awareness are all elements where you’ll see positive changes.
You’ll get to soak up the culture of London, experience living life in the city and learn more about this leading global capital city.
