The Barcelona Tennis Academy Facilities
The Barcelona Tennis Academy training programmes take place at the Andres Gimeno Tennis Club in Castelldefels, a suburb of Barcelona, in Spain. The Academy’s students are given full club membership and have access to its gym, fitness, swimming pool and padel facilities for as long as they are enrolled with us. The club is a 5-minute walk from the beach, a 10-minute drive from the Barcelona International Airport and just 15 km from the centre of Barcelona.
Our great new facilities have all the necessary structures to establish complete training programmes for our players. The club boasts 21 clay courts, 1 greenset, 2 mini tennis courts and 11 padel courts.
The club has a beautiful swimming pool. We use it frequently for our fitness sessions.
By the pool there is a chill out area where players can recover from a hard day of training.
FITNESS CENTRE & gym
The gym is spacious and includes all the equipment required for a first-rate workout.
The aerobics studio is perfect for a quiet stretch after training. It is also used for classes such as yoga, pilates, body pump and more.
The Barcelona Tennis Academy is located within walking distance from the Castelldefels beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Spain. It is a long, sandy beach with a wide promenade.
Not only is it a great place for relaxation and recovery after tiring training sessions, but also a frequent setting for our fitness workouts. At least once per week, we have fitness on the beach, combining hard work with fun.
Bar & Restaurant
The restaurant is located at the tennis club. It is run by the DISTINTO Restaurant, owners of several restaurants and with broad experience.
You can relax on the terrace overlooking the courts and a pool and cool off under one of its beautiful sunshades whilst watching a game of tennis, playing cards or dominoes, or just simply chill out.
The newly redecorated bar is a great place to have a chat with friends or to watch one of the sporting events, including ATP & WTA tournaments and all the FC Barcelona football games.
