FOCUS ON THE FUTURE

TENNIS & SCHOOL PROGRAMME

Our Tennis & School programme offers our young students high-level academic and sports tuition, allowing them to combine year-round intensive training and tournaments with an adapted school curriculum. Our aim is to ensure well-rounded pupil development in both school and sport, giving them the tools to either join the pro circuit or combine studies with sports on a university programme in the States.

To achieve this, our teaching extends beyond the court and the classroom. It also aims to make young people more independent and teach them about hard work and the meaning of sacrifice. When their training ends, our students will have become responsible adults with the potential for a highly successful career as a high-level athlete or in the business world thanks to their university degree.

Although tennis has always been a priority for us, we apply the same philosophy and the utmost care to our students’ education, resulting in a 100% High School Diploma pass rate over the past three years.
What’s more, as well as the values learnt through sport, we provide pupils with the learning and human resources essential to their development and well-being.

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE

TENNIS & SCHOOL PROGRAMME

The Academy offers a comprehensive tournament schedule of 15 to 20 tournaments a year. These tourneys mainly take place on the French Riviera, which is a huge time saver and makes it easier for students to keep up with the academic programme. For players with the required level, the Academy will propose them to compete in some ETA and ITF international tournaments.

In summer, students can maintain an intensive competition schedule by taking part in our summer tour.

During tournaments, players are always mentored by our coaches, whom they debrief every match with.

Parents have access to the coach’s feedback for every match. This way they can follow their child’s progress and be a part of their project.

“There is no real progress in tennis without competition.”Patrick Mouratoglou
