My 11-year-old son enjoys his tennis lessons with coach Chris and Ryan so much, he can’t wait for practice to start. The coaches have done an amazing job in improving his skills and his serving technique. They truly believe in him and are committed to helping him become the best player he can be.
I’m in my 30’s and this was my first time playing tennis. I always wanted to try it and I’m so happy I finally did at Shelton Tennis Academy. Coach Ted is a legend! He made me feel very comfortable and was very patient with me. At the end of my first lesson I was already able to hit the ball well.
Μια εξαιρετική εμπειρία με πάρα πολλά οφέλη αποτέλεσε για τα παιδιά το Mouflon Chess Camp 2019. Μέσα σε ένα όμορφο και ζεστό περιβάλλον τα παιδιά είχαν την ευκαιρία για τέσσερις μέρες, από το πρωί μέχρι αργά το απόγευμα, να διδαχθούν και να απολαύσουν σκάκι ψηλού επιπέδου, να εμπλουτίσουν τις γνώσεις τους και να βελτιώσουν τις ικανότητές τους σε διάφορους τομείς. Ευχαριστούμε θερμά τους εκπαιδευτές Μαρκ και Φοίβο για την σωστή προσέγγιση με τα παιδιά, την έμπειρη καθοδήγηση και την άριστα οργανωμένη δουλειά που επιτέλεσαν και ευχόμαστε παρόμοιες δραστηριότητες να συνεχίσουν και στο μέλλον προς όφελος των νεαρών σκακιστών.
