Elevate your game with expert nutrition

At our Tennis Academy, we believe that nutrition plays a crucial role for athletic success. By following our expert nutritional advice, you can ensure that you are fueling your body correctly to optimize performance, maintain high energy levels, recover effectively, and achieve an ideal body composition for tennis. Here’s how we help you optimize your tennis performance through tailored nutrition:


Optimize Your Tennis Performance

We create personalized meal plans tailored to your specific energy needs, ensuring you have the fuel required for intense training sessions and matches. 

• Our Training and Match nutrition plan provides guidance on what to eat before a training/match to prime your body for peak performance. Additionally, we offer hydration strategies to keep you hydrated with water and electrolyte-rich beverages, helping you maintain endurance and concentration.

Boost Your Energy

Our nutrition plan will keep your energy levels high throughout your training and matches. Our approach to boosting your energy includes:

• Balanced Meals at the Academy Buffet: Learn how to create meals that provide a steady release of energy, focusing on complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

• Snacking at our Energy Point: Recommendations for nutrient-dense snacks to maintain stable energy levels throughout the day.

• Nutrient Timing Guidance: Advice on the timing of meals and snacks around training sessions to maximize energy availability and performance.

Enhance Recovery

Effective recovery is essential for continuous improvement and injury prevention. We emphasize:

• Post-Training and Match Nutrition: Ensuring you consume the right nutrients after training or matches to replenish energy stores, repair muscle tissues, and reduce soreness.

• Anti-Inflammatory Foods: Incorporating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins to reduce inflammation and support muscle recovery.

• Post-Exercise Hydration Protocol: Highlighting the importance of rehydrating with water and recovery drinks to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.

Measure and Improve Your Body Composition

Achieving the right body composition is crucial for agility, speed, and power on the court.

• We will measure your body composition using anthropometric methods based on the standards of the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK).

We have a team of expert nutritionists who will work hand in hand with each player to create a personalized dietary plan, maximizing their potential both on and off the court.
