Our academy offers a selection of annual tennis & fitness programmes.
The full-time training programme can be combined with studies at an international British school or pursued without the option of schooling. It is also possible for players to study online.
Our programme runs according to the school year, from September to June (10 months). We also offer a summer term for July and August.
Players train five days a week with an extra training session held on Saturday mornings. In total the weekly schedule includes more than 20 hours of tennis and fitness training for our full-time students. Students are given individual attention from experienced Barcelona Tennis Academy coaches who follow the player’s progress throughout the year. Students are matched with other players of their age and ability and given an opportunity to engage in match play regularly to develop their competitive skills. Training includes tactical and technical aspects of tennis as well as fitness and mental coaching.
These full-time players, who wish to combine tennis with education, attend an international school located nearby the academy - the British College of Gavà. The syllabus of the college is based on the latest national curriculum of England and Wales. For more details, please have a look at the website of the college - www.britishcollegegava.com.
In addition to the full-time programme, we offer an annual part-time training programme, which we usually recommend to younger players or players at the start of their tennis training, or if parents wish to dedicate more time to academic studies every day. If this option is chosen the student follows the morning training session only each day. Lunch is included in the part-time programme, either at the school or at the Club. The school timetable is adjusted accordingly and the student continues with studies in the same way as the full time students.
For full-age players we provide accommodation in apartments, all of which are located close to our academy. For children attending the academy without adult supervisors we have accommodation with Spanish host families living in the area, walking distance to the courts. Players in this case have their breakfast and dinner with the family, while lunches are at the club or at school.
