"Success is not a gift"


Basic training develops fundamental tennis techniques. Players´ weaknesses are recognized and improved upon, preventing their reoccurrence. This provides the foundational elements needed for future development.

This elementary training focuses on correct body movement and positioning. Our coaches make the necessary mechanical corrections, enabling players to use the acquired techniques more efficiently.


Advanced training develops comprehensive tennis techniques. This emphasis improved motor skills, clean movements, footwork, coordination and timing. With this, reaction speed and stroke frequency will improve.

We combine technique with tactics, so the player learns to use strengths more effectively in basic game situations.


Pro training perfects the players´ situation within the game.
The players´ character and skills are taken into account during this training, creating an experience tailored to both the player as an individual and as an athlete.

We promote efficient ball striking, with consistency, control, direction, spin and power.
