After the success of our event in recent years, we are again very pleased to offer another Jo Durie and Alan Jones Coaching week to La Manga Club in Spain.  We have the following hosted week coming up:

  • New dates coming soon…

Jo DurieJo Durie reached a career singles ranking of number 5 in the world on the WTA Tour, reaching the semi finals of the French and U.S. Opens in 1984 defeating Pam Shriver and Tracy Austin before eventually losing to the 18 times Grand Slam singles Champion Chris Evert. Jo is also a Grand Slam mixed doubles champion winning Wimbledon in 1987 and the Australian Open in 1991.

Alan JonesThese days Jo, along with her former coach Alan Jones, works with some of the brightest hopes in British tennis in the Elite Performance squads. Many of you of course will recognise Jo for her insightful commentary with British Eurosport.

This hosted week will provide you with a solid basis for improving your game with demonstrations, challenging drills and tactical coaching that will challenge how you think about the game of tennis. During the week there will be a number of optional evenings out which are a great way to socialise which will be hosted by Jo and Alan and also a chance for you to gain a real insight into the game of professional tennis.
