Cortijo Alto Tennis Club’s main objective: Contribute to the training of sports men and women

Learn to play tennis and paddle

The tennis school was founded in the same year that the Centro Deportivo Cortijo Alto foundation was created. Our main objective is the all-round development of players of all ages, helping contribute not only to their tennis skills, but also their physical and personal development.

From the start, our club has been popular with people of all ages and our student numbers have grown year on year. Each new season, we welcome back familiar faces who renew their trust in us.

Our school’s main objective is to establish a solid base.  Our focus is on students whose parents wish to offer them well rounded education. And thanks to our experience and methods, our students learn in a way that is as fun as it is efficient without having to train for hours on end. So our students have enough time to study schoolwork and learn other disciplines, all of the things that we as parents want for our child’s education.

We also introduce our students to competition, and many achieve good results, but we always try to convey reason.  Many have tried and failed, and along the way children have neglected their studies and become frustrated players, parents have gone bankrupt…
The premise of our school is to achieve obtainable goals, which is far from insignificant. We all know the educational opportunities that practicing sports in the school environment offers, and we take responsibility for and great pride in being able to guide our students in the behaviour and attitudes necessary to be a good sportsperson. At the same time, this has a positive influence on their performance in all aspects of life. In the words of the renowned educator and proponent of sports education and physical activity, José Mª Cagigal:

“… sport is a school for discipline, control, the habit of effort, self-improvement, accepting your limits, working as part a team, sportsmanship, respecting one’s opponent, knowing how to lose and respect the loser…”

Structure & Organization

Students receive one, two, three or more training sessions a week. Days available:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays.
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

Throughout the week and at weekends we have novice, novice II and advanced.

Great motivation for our students

At weekends (Friday afternoon and Saturday morning) a large number of students enjoy our lessons. They train by age group, but on 4 courts depending on their skill level, from novice to advanced.

This is planned so as to positively influence student motivation, as they can see how students of a higher level play on the neighbouring court and take them as an example to follow and surpass. This way, students know if they are making an effort and getting better when they make it to the next level. All of this, under the guidance and coordination of the school coaches and its principal.

Take part in our school league! You will be able to meet other players in an atmosphere of respect and fair play. Don’t think twice! Enjoy playing with opponents who share your skill level. For more information, feel free to ask in reception at the sports centre or by calling us on 952350540.

ENROLMENT PROCEDURE FOR NEW STUDENTS

Sign up at any time of the year as we have groups of all ages and skill levels available… Do it in person and check out our facilities and services. Contact us online. We will send you an enrolment form and phone you to answer any questions you might have or adapt our services to your requirements.

ALREADY SIGNED UP TO THE TENNIS SCHOOL AND WANT TO CONTINUE?

Students that completed the previous year as well as those that have done summer camps with us who want to continue in the school the following year must inform our staff or phone us between 22nd to 31st of August. From the first of September onwards the places that have not been confirmed will be made available for new students.

The 4th of September we will have the lesson schedule for the previous year’s students. These students must call the sports centre to find out their schedule.

In-club youth league

The aim is for Cortijo Alto tennis school students to obtain constant competitive experience in an easy and economical way, using the centre’s own facilities.

This competition produces the school champion for each category. Students are classified by age and the champion is the winning player once the second round of all the divisions has been completed. This coincides with the end of the school year and the awards ceremony takes place at the end of year function.

WINTER LEAGUE 2020-2021

This will start on 28th October and end midway through June 2021. There will be 7 divisions of players, categorised by age and skill level. Every season there will be two rounds so that during the course our students play an average of 15 matches.

After each round, the best players of each category will go up to the next level group. The matches will be played on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings, taking into account family and player availability. At the start of each week, on the WhatsApp group created for this purpose, each player or legal guardian will communicate their availability to play, which will be taken into account on Wednesdays, when the weekend’s games are being programmed.

Camps

We are tennis teaching specialists, and we organize different courses of different duration and intensity for different student profiles. We include teaching and coaching in technique, tactics and physical training. We take special care to ensure the highest quality for our courses, and that is why we have small groups. This way, our students will be satisfied with the lessons and many of them stay with us throughout the long winter season
