The prestigious head coach, Felix Riba, is in charge of leading the technical sessions. Participants are placed into groups according to age and level. There are two available programmes, perfecting technique and competition.

Training sessions take place from Monday to Friday for a total of 20 hours per week. The aim of these sessions is not just to improve the players’ technique but also their mental aptitude on court.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, classes focus on the attacking game (skills, approach shots, volleys and smashes). We also practice the serve on a daily basis.

Camp Schedule

Taking into account the essence of this summer camp, as well as the training activities or language classes, the Catalonia Tennis Resort offers a wide variety of activities to keep the young people entertained and engaged the whole day.

They can enjoy swimming in the pool, playing cards or other board games, or they can simply spend time with the new friends they will make at the camp.
