Student Summer Program Abroad
Tennis Camp Spain
Are you passionate about tennis and love the beach? This is the perfect opportunity for you!
Improve your tennis skills and be trained by coaches directed by Serge Dronov, trainer of professional ATP ranking players for more than 20 years in Valencia.
Our tennis camp, available for both male and female students, is the perfect mixture of sports, activities and learning.
Spain is a country full of life and culture, with flamenco music and dance, bullfights, fantastic beaches and lots of sunshine. In the cities, narrow, twisting old streets suddenly open out to views of daring, modern architecture. Several regions in Spain have kept a separate identity, culturally and linguistically. All of this diversity combined with a rich heritage of history, art and architecture make Spain a fascinating place to visit.
The summer language camp allows students to live in the heart of Valencia, learn about the Spanish culture and improve their tennis skills!
Your Daily Schedule
During the first part of your day, you’ll be practicing at the Valencia Tennis Academy. The academy is directed by Serge Dronov, who coached professional ATP ranking players for more than 20 years.
After practice, you can go swimming at the Malvarrosa beach, which is a 3-minute walk from the tennis courts. In the afternoon you’ll take Spanish instruction in small groups from professional teachers. Our goal is both to help students to learn Spanish and to offer an unforgettable cultural immersion experience.
Fun activities are also included. Each day after school, all students will get the opportunity to discover every corner of the beautiful city of Valencia! Even On the weekends, fantastic excursions are planned to places like the Bioparc, The City of Arts and Sciences (which includes the Oceanogràfic, L’Hemisféric and the Science Museum among others), the Cathedral, the ‘Miguelete’ tower and of course the beach

Your Spanish Studies
The school is located in one of the safest and wealthiest neighborhoods in Valencia within 10 minutes’ walking distance of the city’s university campuses, which offers our students the opportunity of living in the university environment. It is also very close to the city center (1,5 km.) and has good connections to the beach using the tram (less than 10 minutes).
The school prides itself on hiring qualified professionals, investing in improving the school premises and equipping the classroom with the latest technology. That is why all 23 classrooms have a SMART digital whiteboard. Wi-Fi is accessible everywhere in the school and some free-access computers can be found in the hall area.
More than 150 students can attend lessons simultaneously. During the breaks, students can hang out in the spacious hall, or have a coffee, something to eat in the lounge area. At the front desk, everyone can get all the help they need.
Students who choose to study Spanish with us are definitely making the right choice. The school is independently, professionally and objectively inspected several times per year, in order to make sure that the institute offers the best learning experience to all students.
