Understand more about your game

Jonathan Markson Tennis has been running UK tennis camps since 1981, but its latest offering is unlike any other, offering a unique approach to traditional coaching programmes.
Open to players aged 15 and over, the camp at the Brighton University campus includes a Coach In Training (CIT) programme.
“We believe that by players understanding more about ‘how to coach tennis’, players will actually improve their own game,” says JMT managing director Matthew Cooke. “As well as learning about drills and the technical side, players will learn group management, how to give feedback and leadership skills.”
The Brighton Tennis Camp is aimed at the older teenage player looking to develop their tennis and fitness as well learning more about tennis coaching itself. This new exciting camp takes place on the courts of the University of Sussex just outside the vibrant seaside city of Brighton, with the ideal climate for tennis.
As well the university’s six hard courts, attendees will have access to gym facilities, sports halls and extensive grounds on campus.
With prices starting from £425 per week, the camp is also offered as a residential tennis package and a language programme for international students who want to improve their English as well as their tennis.
For players considering a future as a JMT coach, the Brighton course is the only location to offer the exclusive Coach In Training Programme to improve leadership, group management skills and introduce players to qualities that will pave the way to personal and career growth.
