    Patrick Mouratoglou Tennis Academy

    He says:


    Born in Paris on June 8, 1970, Patrick Mouratoglou long dreamed of pursuing a professional tennis career.His father's influence attempted to steer him in another direction despite a potential which ranked him amongst the best French junior players at the age of 15. This frustration strengthened his desire to never stray from his dream: to be part of the high-level, professional tennis world. After having completed business studies, he reunites with his passion by boldly creating his own tennis academy in 1996. If he could not himself become a tennis champion, he now made it his duty to train them. His motivating, atypical idea is to propose personalized training to the chosen athletes. Where other training centers or academies put forth a system based on natural selection by mixing a large quantity of players, Patrick Mouratoglou promises completely personalized training to a chosen few. If academy members dutifully respect his methods as a innovator, he in turn guarantees them a very small percentage of failure.



    His players:

    Marcos BAGHDATIS
    Yung-Jan CHAN
    Anastasia PAVLYUCHENKOVA

    Cindy CHALA
    Cesar RAMIREZ
    Camila GIORGI
    Renzo OLIVO
    Sebastian LAVIE
    Fiona GERVAIS

    Jan KRISTIAN SILVA
    Quentin FOLLIOT
    Juliette MOURATOGLOU



    His Credo:

    Wow!!! The man has more sayings than a Buddha!!!

    I Say:

    Master of self promotion and the only European academy owner who is claiming a throne, "The biggest and the most famous academy in Europe".
    Extremely clever businessman and if he concentrates on managing players only he will rise to the level of IMG.

    Mouratoglou tennis academy

    I dont know about his rising players, but the tennis camps he offers are total rubbish!! I took both my kids there 2 months ago and i regretted the time and money we spent for almost nothing!!!
    This was not tennis training. It was kindergarden holidays with tennis. We payed 3700 euros for 5 days of training that we could have had at our tennis club for 30 euros a day..Everything there is about getting your money (probably to support the expenses of his rising players ) and nothing else.
    My frustration with this place is so big, its imossible to put in a few lines...
    I am in the process of setting up a dedicated web site so that as many people as possible know and dont waste their money.
    If you want i can also put my mobile no and you cam phone me to tell you everything about it. one word of advice.
    DO NOT GO THERE!! YOU WILL WASTE A LOT OF MONEY FOR NOTHING.
    More info available on request

    I thought i was talking to a tennis parent, but i saw you are a moderator.
    Have you been there?
    I am telling you is a very bad product with brilliant marketing designed to take your money.
    Everything on his website apart for the things for his rising players ( i found out some of them that are shown on the web site have left - baghdatis have left too) is not true

    and

    Thank you for honest opinion,BUT UNFORTUNATELY YOU ARE NOT ONLY ONE WITH BAD EXPERIENCE REGARDING "Mouratoglou tennis academy"

    My advice to parents is to read any contract that he offers you twice because he has made them in that way that he is always in a win, win situation. Tennis wise their isn't much to say but I give him credit for self- promotion and marketing. A little inside info: Baghdatis was not happy with how he was portrayed in Mourataglou book!!!

    Mouratoglou tennis academy

    Not only that, they dont accept credit cards either... because if you are not happy with the product you can not claim the money back.....
    He was telling me that my kids are going to train with world class players and they ended up playing with kids from Guatheloupe , playing monopoly at night....

    This was the sales pitch to us :


    Dear Mr .........

    I was really pleased to speak with you this afternoon. I have well understood your position and expectations about ...... Following our phone conversation, I send you enclosed some information about the opportunity for him to join the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy and attend this assessing and intensive training session. As I told you, our main philosophy is totally different from other tennis academies as we want to pursue excellence and provide individuals a life experience with the highest level of quality training, based on a tailored made approach for each one. Therefore, we need to be selective in our approach and work with a limited number of players that is why, we accept few players, entirely committed (maximum 12 players per week) through these weekly training sessions, starting from Sunday evening 6pm to Saturday midday.
    Our priority is to give the best environment possible to each player so they can all improve significantly, expand their horizons and reach their full potential. Therefore, we will give ..... the opportunity to follow the same training schedule as the Academy full-time members, the “Rising Players”. During the training session, ..... will be given intensive and personalized training (with one coach for only 3 or 4 players maximum on each court), with physical training. This means that his coach will completely pay attention to him, to his personality, to his attitude and to his main goals. Basically, he will train 4/5h tennis training and 2h physical training (including warm up and stretching with physical trainer) with practice matches, two times a week. Please note ...... will have the same living conditions as the “Rising players” meaning he will have full accommodation in a chalet (by two) and full boarding (specific meals supervised by a nutritionist. You must understand he will be part of the players "family" and all the players are pretty well supervised by our pastoral care team, in charge of the personal well-being of the players (wake up, light outs in the evening) and we used to organize extra activities over the week end such as visiting Paris, going to the French Open...
    To start with, he will be assessing through the Mouratoglou Tests in order to fully assess his technical and physical aptitudes. As well, he will participate in practice matches to test his tactical and mental abilities. Then, we will videotape .... in order to get more detailed information on his game. This accurate assessment will enable us to form a clear opinion about his potential. Then, he will receive her own specific training schedule with the key work directions, established by his coach for him and he will need to follow during each week. Through the session, his coach will provide him personalized training and definitely emphasize on the specific areas he needs to work on. As a primary focus, we also focus on the mental part and the human being meaning we cultivate a coaching mental philosophy with each individual. As I told you, we definitely focus here to develop every individual as a person first and not just as a tennis player. Therefore, we will pay a lot of attention to ..... and help him to gain self-confidence, be prepared for the challenges that tennis and life requires. Thanks to our top end specialists (nutritionist, medical staff, fitness and tennis experts coaches), we will teach .... how to extend his hard working barriers, have a positive attitude and believe in himself.

    Moreover, ...... will benefit also from one individual tennis lesson with his coach, every week. We always to put the right coach for the right player and ......... will have a closed relationship with his coach, As I mentioned to you, thanks to our Coaching Video analysis, we also videotape ........ several times a week in different situations and according to a specific protocol. This complete video analysis will allow our team to make a complete analysis of ......., help with stroke correction as well as injury prevention. The main idea is to provide an accurate opinion of ......’s abilities and the main areas he needs to work to maximise his potential. As well, ...... will be able to watch the video, in private with his coach, straight away after the training and get all feedbacks and recommendations.
    You can make sure this is definitely the "place to be" for ...... if you want him to prepare to advance to the next level, with a very high standard structure and friendly atmosphere. Please understand we will develop him not only as a tennis player but also as a person. Therefore, ....... will benefit from optimal training conditions to experiment this valuable overseas experience, improve in such an inspiring, dynamic and multi-cultured environment and you will totally be impressed by the changes he will make after.

    As we have world class players in the Rising Player’s team, you can make sure that ..... will be challenged and will have a well understanding of what he needs to improve and how far he is from the best players of his age category. ...... will definitely improve quickly and learn a lot during the training session, in all areas. At the end of the session, based on .......'s evolution and on the video analysis, we will give you and him, a complete individual evaluation report, with all our feedbacks (about physical, tennis, tactical and mental areas). We look on the long term and we will definitely give ..... recommendations for his future evolution. As a first experience, one month is certainly the best way to prepare his tournaments and evolve so significantly and advance to the next level. Please I will send you a written report by email with all assessing results and instructions we can give to him.

    Finally, if you are interested in coming with him, we provide additional services to parents or coaches. Indeed, as we have a limited number of bed places, parents or tennis coaches used to stay in closed hotels to the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, with special rate for you. As well, a shuttle transfer service is available if necessary from airport or train stations to the Academy. If you are interested in, we are ready to organize everything for you.

    The global price for is 1795€/week and that will include absolutely everything (training, coaching video analysis, accommodation and boarding) from Sunday evening to Saturday morning. Once you will arrive, a MTA package will be given to ......, including, in particular, the new book of Patrick Mouratoglou – www.eduquerpourgagner.com. As I told you, we are constantly working to become more and more efficient and my main priority is to give ..... and each player, optimal training conditions so he can fully feel benefit from such a profitable experience. Therefore, I confirm you the opportunity for him to come either between March 7 to 13 or from March 14 to 27 for one or two weeks. Same age players with a high standard level will attend the two weeks session dates. Nevertheless, due to the large number of demands, I recommend you to let me know, as soon as you can, the convenient dates for you.

    I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

    I thank you for the interest in the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy and please feel free to contact me if you need further information

    Sincerely yours,

    The bottom line here is pretty clear : money and nearly 1800 Euros for a week is way,way,way,way too expensive

    @Gaycri : Great experience for me and my son at Mouratoglou. My son went to the mouratoglou tennis academy in April 2009. I went to lot of Academues and I was very impressed with my son's new attitude. He learned a lot there, more than anywhere and especially because the coaches have a personal look to everyone. The program was very comprehensive and personalized.
    After one year, I have to say I am happy we went there together...if it can helps you!

    @Brutus : I know a lot of Academies and the email was very well detailed. The most important is what is happening when you are there and you will always have someone to explain you how it works (even if it can be sometimes the same email). I was very satisfied with what I wanted for my son. The sales email was not the same for me anyway. I had long talks with the person (i wanted something very special as my son on one of the top 3 players nationally), he was receptive and I was impressed to see that I can trust. Your email is really true and when you are there, I can assure you will see the difference.
