About the National Tennis Centre
Located on the edge of Richmond Park in southwest London, the National Tennis Centre is the leading performance tennis centre in the UK with 4 outdoor grass courts, 6 outdoor clay courts, 12 acrylic courts, and 6 indoor courts. Join the fun this summer and experience what it’s like to train like a full time tennis professional at the National Tennis Centre, home of the Great Britain’s Davis Cup team and other full time tennis professionals.
Our high-performance program aims to take players to ‘the next level’ through an elite squad training atmosphere. These camps are most suited to junior players who are competing regularly at school and/or club level. Strong players are challenged tactically, technically and physically, while developing players will learn to master grip, spin, movement, power and consistency. Coaches, working on a 1:6 ratio will use demonstration, practice and feedback - including video - to improve technique. Fitness and conditioning drills put emphasis on footwork balance and speed.
Expect plenty of short-set matches and competitive challenges on court, including “beat the coach”! Our tennis coaches are experienced in coaching players of all ages, language levels and abilities. They are energetic and passionate about youth development, ensuring the camp is a challenging and fun environment.
An assessment on the first day of the camp groups players by age and ability. The coaches tailor the programme to get the best out of each player, improving their tennis skill on court. Off-court, workshops teach players about psychology, physical and mental preparation, tactics and self-profiling.
Each player receives a personal assessment from the coaching director together with a development plan from their coach.
Check in takes place on the first Monday of the session at 13:30 – 15:30 at the National Tennis Centre's reception area.
Check out takes place on the last Sunday of the session at 9:30 – 12:30 at the National Tennis Centre's reception area.
Day campers will receive lunch daily. Overnight campers will receive 3 nutritionally balanced meals a day, as well as an evening snack. Vegetarian and special diet options are available.
