La Manga (Spain) Training Camp 2015

2015 La Manga

(Spain) Training Camp Report

Ex GRAND SLAM 2015 was held in La Manga, Spain in March for the third year running and it was as successfully as ever.

 

39 pax were in attendance, including the Army coaches Allan Saul and Austin Coventry; with great attendance from all of our four teams; Ladies, Mens, Ladies 'Masters' and Mens 'Masters' teams. Great tennis for all.

The weather was unfortunately intermittent during the week, but did not stop anyone from getting on the court and fighting the wind to get serves across the net.

(Spain) Training Camp Report

 

Coaching started each day at 1000hrs through to 1400hrs with a short break for lunch, with many continuing to play matches under their own steam into the afternoon.

 

Training progressed during the week from ground strokes, volleys, serves to match tactics, singles and doubles.

The team cohesion and morale was evident throughout the week with all players benefitting from mixed matches across teams, culminating in a red vs blue team competition on the last day.
