Testimonials

"I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for making the visit for my son Conal to the Tennis Academy at Vilanova such a good experience. He had a great time, all the people he met there were extremely friendly and positive – he really enjoyed the opportunity to work in a high standard tennis environment and on clay. In particular the coaching team and of course Cesar and his wife for accommodating him in their house and making it feel like home! He is already working on his footwork and fitness!"

Conal Brown

"I want to thank you and everyone at Vilanova Club de Tennis for making our five month stay so fantastic. The girls really enjoyed the tennis and their tennis has improved so much during their time with you. You have re-awoken their love of tennis and the whole experience has brought alive their Spanish and their love of Spanish culture. We will be back at every opportunity!"

We feel that we have learned a lot and we look forward to putting all this to practice in our game. We hope that we have the opportunity to get back to Vilanova soon."
