Basically looking for a place where people who are really into tennis want to improve and play other people. Sort of like an intense training camp where you get teached by pro's everyday. Do they exist?

Also, they need to be in Europe.

Julian Alonso runs a tennis academy in Spain and also in Hungary. Strictrly clay courts. They recommend 2x2 hr tennis and 1-2 hr conditioning 5 days a week. I am doing it this summer, but only doing it 3 times a week and paying about $80/week - this doesn't include accomodations etc. Also, max 4 adults per coach.

Where in Spain?

Julian Alonso doesn't sound familiar to me. Was he a tour player or something?

Yes, an older tour player. Should be about 40 now. As I recall, he had a huge serve. But, at my age I'm lucky to remember I'm on another soccer forum. :)

I remember now the guy. I think he and beautiful Martina Hingis had a little story.

So, Iluvboris, where in Spain does he have his academy?

(sorry about the delay, i've been gone for a few days...)

TENNIS ACADEMY JULIAN ALONSO VILLARROYA, S.L.
VIA EUROPA, 169 1-2.

I don't have a website for them. However, this is the site for his Hungarian academy, they could link you over. The site is in English, just email them and you'll get the info.

I don't exactly know. Apparently, he and Martina Hingis began seeing each other, and he probably took it a bit too seriously. Before he knew he was not totally focused on his career--kind of a french movie script? Now he's got a tennis Academy in Spain. Iluvboris is going there this summer.

Thanks Iluvboris for the address. I may have to go to Spain next year so it's good to know.
