Tennis Europe Academy

The new Tennis Europe Academy opened its doors for the first time in the autumn of 2018 to offer training camps for groups of elite young players (aged 14&Under and 16&Under) from Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 member nations, nominated by their national tennis federations.*

The Academy is a collaboration between Tennis Europe, the Czech Tennis Association and Tennis Club Prostejov and provides a unique opportunity to train alongside other elite players and national teams from across Europe under the tutelage of TC Prostejov's highly experienced team of coaches, led by former ATP world #5 Jiří Novák. National association coaches participating in the camp will also be highly involved.

Next Training Periods in 2020:

MARCH/APRIL/MAY 2020:

  • 29th March - 4th April 2020 - 12 players maximum
  • 13th April - 19th April 2020 - 16 players maximum
  • 26th April - 2nd May 2020 - no limits

Entries

Entry forms should be sent to maciejs@tenniseurope.org and duly signed by the respective National Association.

The number of players for each camp is limited.

Local organisers will provide a guardian who will take care of players 24/7. Neverthless, preference will be given to national teams travelling and participating in the camp with national coaches over players travelling and participating in the camp with individual coaches.

There is a possibility of additional training camps within the period of April - September 2020. 
Interested nations should contact Maciej Szymonski minimum 7 weeks before the planned camp. The camp would be opened with minimum 4 players and coach arriving to Prostejov. 
There will be no guardian service available unless higher number of players would need it. Local organisers reserve right to confirm/cancel additional training camp 4 weeks before the beginning of the camp at the latest.
