The Sotogrande Tennis Camp is designed for boys and girls from 10 to 17 years old who want to improve their tennis skills in a fun, international environment. The program combines high-performance training with entertainment for a balance of fun and sport.
The camp takes place in San Roque at the Sotogrande Tennis Academy on the southern coast of Spain. Students find accommodation in the Sotogrande International Boarding House, a 4-star hotel that has been renovated into a spacious and modern student residence. The camp is located about half an hour from Gibraltar and one hour from the airports of Malaga and Jerez.
Great mix of international participants
Transfer service included in the price
No language classes
Each year, students from over 45 countries attend this camp to fuel their passion for tennis and improve their skills. To accommodate the many different nationalities, camp monitors speak various languages, and of course, the monitors supervise the students during their entire stay for their safety.
* To attend this camp, students should be used to training at least three times a week at an intermediate or advanced level.
At the Sotogrande Tennis Academy, students take part in high-performance training for 25 hours per week. They work on their technique and tactical skills and even practice their mental game to give them an advantage during competitions.
In addition, the Sotogrande Tennis Academy is dedicated to developing physically and mentally healthy athletes with strong values to accompany them in all aspects of life. They especially value positivity and humility, and students are encouraged to maintain a positive attitude during their stay.
The Sotogrande Tennis Academy also hosts full-time students that study and train all year round with the ultimate goal of playing tennis professionally or earning a scholarship to compete at a university in the United States. The summer camp is designed to mimic the daily life of a full-time academy student.
Agenda & Activities
The camp agenda is quite intense. The students train during the mornings and afternoons. During the evenings, camp monitors organize recreational activities for the campers designed to help them integrate and make friends.
Students attend various excursions and outings during their time at camp.
On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the campers spend the entire day away from the academy visiting nearby cities or attractions (see list below). On Thursdays, they visit the Sotogrande port, and on Sundays, they tend to spend the day at the beach, relaxing and enjoying the sun.
Younger campers and older campers follow different excursion itineraries. The younger campers (13 years old and younger) take part in two organized excursions from the list below:
- Theme park
- Amazonia adventure park
