The prestigious Mouratoglou Academy was the place of the 2nd Dunlop Junior Camp 2021 in November. The first one took place in 2019 after the collaboration started between Dunlop and Mouratoglou Academy.
Dunlop International invited 27 junior players, aged 10 -18, who represented several key countries of the global tennis world such as France, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, UK, Japan as well as Israel and Gabon.
Hosted by the Dunlop team in conjunction with the Academy Coaching team the program was versatile and intensive with Tennis, Fitness, Mental Strength, Nutrition and Tactics. Aside from the Tennis specific program, Padel and Table Tennis were played in the evening as other racket sports in recreational time.
The founder of the academy Patrick Mouratoglou, a Dunlop ambassador, spent some time together with the kids & juniors at the Dunlop Innovation Centre during the week long camp. Listening to Patrick’s tennis philosophy and learning some tips and tricks was a highlight of the week for all the participants. Patrick, also invited the kids and juniors to take some pictures with him and signed caps, shirts or Dunlop tennis balls. A day to remember for all participants for sure.
