Individual lessons

For a player who wants individual intensive training on a one-to-one basis, BTA Directors and coaches can provide expert analysis and coaching. Individual lessons will help you improve your game faster, focusing on a specific area of your game, which needs to be improved. Individual lessons can be a great addition to another programme at the academy, but they can also be booked on their own.

Students train five days a week with an extra group training session held on Saturday mornings. In total the weekly schedule includes more than 20 hours tennis and fitness training for our full-time students.

Students are matched with other players of their age and ability and given an opportunity to engage in match play regularly to develop their competitive skills. Training includes tactical and technical aspects of tennis, as well as fitness and mental coaching.

The British College of Gavà offers a comprehensive and personalised education. It encourages students to take a genuine interest in their studies, to make the most of their skills and to develop a strong sense of personal motivation, thus preparing them to continue learning throughout his life in a world that is rapidly evolving. It provides a cosy, quiet and disciplined environment in which students can take advantage of British – and international – programmes enriched with the language and culture, Spanish and Catalan.

The Barcelona Tennis Academy offers short-stay tennis training programmes for individuals for any length of
time between 1 week to 3 weeks. Each training programme is specifically tailored to each individual player’s
ability, ambition and potential. If a player wishes to stay for longer than 3 weeks we recommend they consider enrolling in our monthly or annual programmes. Players are given the same personalised attention from our staff regardless of the length of their stay. They will receive coaching from the BTA Directors and coaches and be given an opportunity to engage in match play with other Academy players where possible and suitable.

Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you all so much again for making the week so fantastic! It was such a great experience, very personalised and the venue was simply perfect. Everyone has been saying what a great time they had, and it's really all down to you and your wonderful team who were all so friendly and accommodating. We really do appreciate it. Many thanks again for all your efforts! I do hope we'll be back! (if you have us ;)

Sandra

I am now back home and settled and just wanted to thank you again for an incredible month at the BTA. Everyone was so fantastic - conscientious, fun and encouraging - so please pass on my thanks and regards to the rest of your team. I will never forget the experience. I learnt a great deal and I look forward to putting it all into practice in future.I would like to thank the Barcelona Tennis Academy, and in particular, Juan, Raphael, Gilles, Adri and Jordie for their professionally kind and focused tuition. As a beginner, and aspiring intermediate player I felt that my tennis needed guidance to take it to the next level.The reality of my time with the BTA was beyond all my expectations. I was worked hard in all the right fitness routines, in the gym and on the courts. My technique in my game was worked with, and fine tuned to be the best I could be. This experience was delivered with a great deal of patience, and understanding. The food and facilities at the club are amazing, with good wifi. They have everything to hand. Supermarkets and the beach are within walking distance. The accommodation offered in the package was comfortable, clean and a home from home. A worthwhile mention here has to be with the staff at the restaurant, wonderfully understanding with my English request in a very Spanish location. As a parent, I was fortunate to see firsthand the wonderful family atmosphere of the academy. Knowing now what I do, there is a huge recommendation for any young person to be here. They would benefit from the kindness and compassion of great coaches and thoughtful adults in an alien environment. Words fail me for this experience, it has been beyond all expectations. I'll see you in 2017.

All we have to say is that we have dealt with the most passionate and dedicated coaches at BTA. We are now confident that Anjani is real safe hands. We returned home so very satisfied. Thanks again for all the support. A very special thanks to Mr Jordi to come all the way to drop us. Thanks & Kind Regards!
