Tennis Europe has announced that the French Tennis Federation will host the 2018 Tennis Europe Coaches Conference at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in Biot during the weekend of 18-21 October.
The theme of this year’s conference will be ‘Women’s Tennis’. The keynote speaker will be one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject; Patrick Mouratoglou, coach of the former world #1 and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. Mouratoglou is the founder of the eponymous academy, which has served as a training base for players including Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Grigor Dimitrov, as well as many of the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s leading players. Both recently-crowned Roland Garros junior champions – Cori Gauff and Chun Hsin Cheng – are current students of the academy. Further speakers, and the full programme will be announced in the near future.
The Tennis Europe Coaches Conference is targeted to technical directors and Fed Cup coaches from Tennis Europe’s 50 constituent national tennis associations. This year’s event will also accept 100 additional entries on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to the approval of their national association of the coaches concerned. Ideally, coaches should be working with elite girls and women, and/or national teams. For further information regarding the entry procedure, please click here.
