More Information

Nike Tennis Camps UK offers exclusive tennis coaching programmes in England for children aged 10 - 17. Camps are operated at leading UK tennis centre,

The National Tennis Centre, and a top English private school, Lancing College. The tennis coaching programme is designed and led by experienced coaches and former ATP and ITF professionals.

Nike Tennis Camps UK provides a great training environment for junior players seeking to advance their tennis game in a professional but fun environment. International kids can also improve their English language, choosing from two types of English lessons taught by highly qualified English teachers.

 

Different venues are best suited to different age groups and abilities:

National Tennis Centre - in April, July and August
A prestigious tennis venue featuring all 4 grand slam surfaces
For developing and advanced players, not suitable for beginners

 

How It Works

Coaches are experienced in instructing players with different language capabilities, ensuring they get the best out of their sessions. English is taught based on the successful CLIL model by highly qualified native English language teachers. Students’ language skills improve using a sports-motivated environment to keep them fully engaged in language learning.

Players will live, train and socialise with native English speaking players resident on camp, ensuring they are immersed in English culture throughout their stay.

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 analysis - to improve technique. Players will learn about all aspects of athlete development including nutrition, hydration, physiology, psychology, preparation and organisation.

 

The Result

All students leave the camp with their English workbook, a proficiency certificate and an individual assessment with advice on how to further develop their language skills. On court, each player receives a personal assessment from the coaching director, together with a development plan
