Tennis Boarding School Program
The IMG Academy tennis program sets the standard by which all tennis academies are measured. Founded in the 1970s, our program is known world-wide as the premier training destination for athletes of all levels and abilities. With a program built on the fundamentals of founder and International Tennis Hall of Fame member Nick Bollettieri, our group of expert coaches are led by former Technical Director of Dutch Tennis Federation and current Tennis Director Rohan Goetzke.
Student-athletes are split into two sessions-morning or afternoon- where players receive multiple hours of on-court training per day that includes match-simulation drills and match play. Off the court, students will analyze their play and technique through video analysis to enhance match play skills and learn proper shot combinations to minimize open-court opportunities for the opponent. With personalized instruction and ongoing physical and mental conditioning, our players will heighten their court IQ and bring more power, strength, and finesse to each slam.
