Intensive multiday tennis training, where players of all levels can sharpen their tennis skills or fix the "old bad habits". The goal is to start from the basics and gradually increase the complexity of the training.
Program in numbers
That's the recommended age for this stage.
3 main parts:
Each part on a separate court, while players rotate the courts.
A coach should be able to handle up to 4 adults.
Example: 3 coaches, 3 courts and 12 players
The class duration should be 90 minutes.
Adult tennis camps are intensive trainings focused on sharpening tennis skills of all players, no matter the level of skills, while having an amazing time. Camps usually last 4 – 5 days, everyday 1,5 - 2 hours sessions. Trainings include specific tennis drills to fix the “old bad habits„ and to learn something new also evaluations from the coaches, and over all work out in a social environment. The goal is to start from the basics and gradually increase the complexity of the trainings.
Willingness to learn

Since the schedule is planned for certain number of players from the very beginning, it is very important to be on time
The material should include equipment used for the development of technique and tennis skills but also other aspects of tennis game. We suggest using cones, targets, or additional lines.
Improvement of strokes

Structure of the lesson
After a joint warm-up, players are divided into 3 groups according to their level of tennis and assigned to a court. On every court, there is a different coach, and the focus is put on different kinds of stroke and execution. The session is split into 3 equal time periods and after each period, the groups switch courts.
Suggested program of a 5-day camp:
COURT 1 / COURT 2
The least experienced group should start on court 1, where are the least difficult strokes and exercises, e. g. forehand. On court 2, the coach works with a more experienced group compared to court 1.
DRILLS ON COURT 1 AND COURT 2
The first drill should be fed by hand with not too much movement but with a lot of feedback and instructions.
The second drill is also handfed, but it includes the movement of the players.
The third drill is the coach feeding with his racket and the players don’t have to run to the ball.
The fourth drill, the coach is again feeding with the racket, but the players have to run to the ball.
The strongest and most skilled group is on the court 3. In the first drill are combined the 2 strokes practiced on court 1 and 2, in this case, short Backhand, and short Forehand. The coach works with the group on the serve for the rest of the session. Since there is serve practice every day of the camp, the coach should start with the basics of the serve on day 1 – short serve from serve line, and progress going through different kinds of serves and placements throughout the camp.
After a certain amount of time (the session is split into 3 equal time periods after the warm-up) the players from court 1 rotate to court 2, the players from court 2 to court 3, and the players from court 3 to court 1. That way, the players have an opportunity to practice a variety of strokes from the basics to more technically demanding forms with 3 different coaches.
