We have teamed up with the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy on the beautiful French Riviera to offer two lucky readers the chance to train there for a week and take advantage of all the features this world-class facility has to offer.
Headed up by Patrick Mouratoglou, the coach of Serena Williams, the state-of-the-art academy boasts 34 tennis courts (clay and hard), six “connected” courts which have the latest Playsight video equipment, four padel courts, a student campus, an athletics track and multi-sports area, a fitness room and weightlifting area, a sports medicine centre, a pro shop, two pools and VIP and Seminar rooms.
The lucky prize winners will be able to choose a week in August 2018 to go to Sophia Antipolis, on the French Riviera, and train in the beautiful surroundings of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. The academy is only 15 minutes’ drive from the international Cote d’Azur airport at Nice. (Please note that flights and travel to the Academy are not included in the prize).
The winners will arrive on Sunday evening, when they will be welcomed and briefed about the upcoming week. Accommodation will be provided on the campus in the student rooms, with breakfast, lunch and dinner included each day.
Each day (Monday to Saturday inclusive) you will train like a pro. Morning sessions start at 8.30am and last until midday. This session comprises an hour and a half of fitness training and two hours of tennis. After a break for lunch, the afternoon session begins at 1.45pm and ends at 6pm, after another hour and a half of fitness and two hours of tennis.
Each evening after dinner you can participate in organised activities, like short trips to the beach and lakes. After that it’s strictly lights out at 10pm. The Mouratoglou Tennis Academy has some of the best coaches in the world, who will be on hand to lead the group sessions. At an additional cost you can have your own physical check-up, which includes a 30-minute recovery massage, or a mental boost, with a personality analysis and an individually tailored plan to develop the mental side of your game.
So, if you fancy training under the supervision of some of the world’s best coaches on the courts where top players like Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams, and Grigor Dimitrov have honed their games, enter this amazing competition now.
