The first couple of weeks are used as an evaluation period, after the player has adapted one of our coaches will have a meeting with the player and their parents to go over the tournament schedule. When travelling to tournaments the player(s) will be accompanied by a coach. We attend local and international tournaments (such as Tennis Europe), depending on the level and ambition of each player.



We know playing a sport at a competitive level makes it difficult to keep up with other aspects of life. We strive to make our students understand that their studies are just as important as tennis. The students who are staying at the Catalunya Tennis Academy for a long period of time will have the option of attending a Spanish school or an international school, which follows the curriculum The Unitversity of Nebraska High School. If you would like to read more about what the international school has to offer, you can click here to be directed to their website. If you come for a short period of time or if you already have the studies figured out on your own, you can still join our academy.


Tennis players who are not from Barcelona will stay with a host family and other tennis players. The host family’s house is located 5km away from the academy. The host family is very hospitable and have been hosting tennis players in their home for many years.
