Adult Tennis Weekend (Sample Programme Details)

Thursday: 6pm-7pm – Tennis Welcome and Assessment / Goal Setting with Coaching Team

“For all ACTA coaching courses, players are invited to attend an initial tennis welcome session for 1 hour with the teaching professionals. This session gives players the chance to hit a few balls and have their game assessed, meet other players looking to participate in the programme for the week, seek equipment advice or simply get to know the set up at the academy. This session also gives players participating in the course a chance to enter into some goal setting for the days ahead.”

Friday: 9am-11am – Coaching Clinic 1: Getting the basics right

“The first coaching clinic of the weekend focuses on getting the key footwork and ball positions correct to maximize success on the tennis court. Players will be encouraged to work on their movement patterns by playing balls in a range of different positions via a series of specific ACTA drills. Players are taught the importance of the split step and how to time their preparation correctly as well as learning to find a good contact point for each shot depending on the stroke they are playing. The session also covers some basic swing tips on the groundstrokes and volleys and introduces the 3 basic court zones – back court, mid court and front court zones – crucial areas to practice from in order to develop a well-balanced game. The session is completed with essential work on the serve which is a feature of every coaching clinic at ACTA”

Friday: 4pm-6pm – Coaching Clinic 2: Developing a Tactical Game

“The afternoon session on the first day features a chance to start to learn the basic strategies and tactics associated with the game of tennis. Depending on the standard of the players in the group, tactics can range from keeping the ball in play and gaining consistency in your strokes, to building rallies and learning how to finish points of correctly. Tuition is given for both singles and doubles where applicable and the sessions is always finished with point play and some favorite ACTA challenges”

Saturday: 9am-11am – Coaching Clinic 3: Footwork Progressions and Technical Development

“The first session on Saturday carries on from the on court work on Friday morning with a series of key ACTA drills designed to progress a players footwork and positioning to the ball. Players are encouraged to push their boundaries to cover more of the court and learn how professional players read the game and react quickly to different situations. This session also focuses players on key swing shapes and racket work. Players are challenged to understand their pros and cons of their current grip positions and how to create better swing shapes when playing each shot.”

Saturday: 4pm-6pm – Becoming a Stronger Competitor

“Although there is a tournament at the academy every Friday evening, all participants on the weekend tennis retreat are encouraged to play a round robin tournament or match play situation against another guest or client on Saturday afternoon. This is an opportunity for your coach to assess your game in a live tennis game and give you feedback on where you are making mistakes or how to maximize your strengths when playing. Just like the Davis Cup, this session is a unique opportunity to have a coach helping you through a game and giving you the confidence to play better tennis as a result.”

Sunday: 9am-11am – Specialty Shots and Summaries

“Sunday’s session is designed to be a chance for players to practice some shots that are more specialist areas of the game such as drop shots and smashes as well as ask questions about some previous areas of the weekend’s play. This session will also allow your coach to go over any areas that may be necessary to reinforce good habits when leaving the academy. Players are also encouraged to work on an exit strategy from the coaching programme – mostly a discussion on not waiting too long before picking up a racket again! The coaching and weekend is concluded with a summary from the coaching team and a chance to exchange emails so that ACTA can stay in touch with your progress and hopefully see you back on court again very soon!”

 

Adult Tennis Week (Sample Programme Details)

Our intensive tennis week follows the same lines as the coaching weekend but of course you are on court far more often. The programme features all of the same coaching clinics as our coaching weekend but there are other elements that are included as follows:

Serving Masterclass and Video Analysis

"Arguably the most important shot in your game, the serve can be both a help or a hinderence for players. By spending time on court for our specific serving masterclass players can come to terms with their service action and decide what path to take to progress the shot. Video analysis is heavily used to make sure players can see where changes need to be made."

Maximise Your Doubles

"UK players tend to play doubles predominantly and we have dedicated one of our session solely to this format of the game. Learn about court positions, tactics and communication skills to help you become master of club night or move up to the next level of your club team."

Champions Tournament

"End your week in style as our reigning tennis champion and take home the trophy to show your family how much you have improved in just one week! The tournament is great fun and good way to test out your new skills and see how far you have come in just one week."
