Tennis Europe & Mouratoglou Tennis Academy sign partnership
Tennis Europe has announced a two-year partnership with the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. Under the terms of the agreement, the French Riviera-based training facility will take on the role of the European Federation’s first ever official academy partner.
Overseen by President and Founder Patrick Mouratoglou, coach of WTA world #1 Serena Williams, the Academy is currently undergoing extensive expansion and refurbishments ahead of a grand reopening on July 3rd. The facilities, more than 12,000 m², include 34 clay and Green Set courts, a state of the art medical and fitness centre, on-site residence, tennis pro shop, multisport facilities, swimming pool & spa, and meeting and conference rooms.
The partnership is further good news for the Tennis Europe Junior Tour, which continues to grow after celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, and already has two events scheduled at the Mouratoglou facility in 2016. Several of the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s current top players, including Croatian 14 & Under #6 Borna Devald, Noa Kznaric and 2015 ‘Les Petits As’ winner Chun Hsin Tseng already train at the Mouratoglou Academy, while Junior Tour alumni including Novak Djokovic, David Goffin, Jeremy Chardy and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova are regular visitors.
The agreement also raises the possibility for the Academy to provide expertise and resources to assist with Tennis Europe’s coaching activities, including future European Coaches Conferences, training camps and other events.
Tennis Europe Chief Executive Officer Olli Mäenpää commented, “The name Mouratoglou has been synonymous with tennis of the highest performance in recent years and we are delighted that we will be able to bring the benefits of the expertise, knowledge and facilities of the Mouratoglou Academy to our member national federations, coaches and to the participants of the Tennis Europe Junior Tour.”
Patrick Mouratoglou said, “In the name of Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, I’d like to express my pride at becoming a partner of Tennis Europe. The organising body represents all kinds of tennis, but with a particular focus on Junior Tennis and competition in Europe, and we will also be sharing our passion with a group of inspired, modern and dedicated professionals.”
