For Ever Lasting Relationships

Lindsay Poole

“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!”

Conal Brown

“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!”

Gerry Raftopoulus

“We have arrived back home after spending 4 more great days in Barcelona (most of this time seeing tennis matches at the tournament)

Once again Artemis and I would like to thank you for the very nice time we had with you and your team. 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.”

Warwick Academy – College House

“The best training session ever”

“Many many thanks to you and Cesar for making our tennis holiday such a success. We loved everything about your club, your coaching, your hospitality, Vilanova and Barcelona. We will recommend your club to all our friends and we will definitely be coming back!”

Zhang Ling – WTA 197

“I would like to say how much I have appreciated Raphael’s coaching during these few years. With his help, I made big improvements not only on technical skills but also learned how to train physically, take good care of my body, and be stronger mentally. He always deeply understands what the players need during daily practices of the game. In addition, he really cares about players and has a lot of respect for them and what they think.”

Andrew Hamar – All American Wake Forest Uni

“Raphael helped me obtain my first ATP point whilst traveling together, in only my 4th future, and similarly helped me make into Orange Bowl in my final year as a junior. We still talk regularly and he still helps me with my game. In terms of coaching, I have never met somebody as positive and uplifting, and I can honestly say he boosted my performance significantly, working not only my technical and tactical game, but also my mental approach to tennis. It’s an impressive feat when somebody is able to manage this in my opinion. I hope to continue working with Raphael in whatever aspect he is able to help. Ever since he worked with me since he coached me at Van Der Meer tennis academy he has always been a coach whom I have high regard for both on and off the tennis court, as he works his players hard in both areas. It has always been the utmost pleasure to work with Raphael Maurer.”
