Tennis and Language


DIMITAR Tennis Academy along with Education First (EF), a leading provider of English Language programs in the United States, is proud to announce the new mutual “Tennis and Language” Program for international tennis players.

The idea behind the “Tennis and Language” program, is to provide non-English speaking junior tennis players the opportunity to come and train at DIMITAR Tennis Academy as they learn English in the already established by EF educational environment.

The program will run:
- during the school year for students age 16 and above (for a minimum of 3 months on a student visa)
- during our summer camps for students age 13 and above (for a minimum of 2 weeks on a tourist visa):
o “Tennis & Language" Summer Program: $3995/two weeks
o “Tennis & Language” Boarding with Host Family: $1500/two weeks

Dimitar Tennis Academy hosts junior tennis clinics all year around and we run summer tennis camps too. We have built a flexible schedule for junior tennis players to benefit from both learning the language and improving their tennis game.

Highlights of the program:
- Central location just off famous State Street near the beach, shopping and restaurants
- Safe and friendly
- World-class tennis coaches with a 4:1 ratio
- Only a couple of hours from Los Angeles and Hollywood
- Spanish Colonial style building and outdoor courtyard.
