Coaching strategy

The Mouratoglou Academy’s reputation for excellence and professionalism goes back over 20 years. We are now proud to announce a new partnership with IMSAT, another prestigious sporting body.


The Academy has partnered with the Institut Méditerranéen du Sport de l’Animation et du Tourisme specialist sports college (a branch of CFA Futurosud and Paul Valéry University) to open doors and support you in your coach development! This partnership is a logical step in the Academy’s strategy, which has been a performance and learning centre for tennis players and coaches for over 20 years. Thus, several one-year apprenticeships have been offered at the Mouratoglou Academy since September 2020, giving ten tennis instructors the opportunity to complete their State Diploma in Youth, Popular Education and Sport (DEJEPS) as a sandwich course. With both aspects of the course based on-site, you will be totally immersed in day-to-day life at the prestigious facility.
