About the Academy
The JC Ferrero-Equelite Tennis Academy was founded by Antonio Martínez Cascales in 1995 to continue the work that he and a group of collaborators had been carrying out at several schools in the area since 1980. What started in 1995 as a modest and small Academy, with only two tennis courts and a gym, is now one of the best academies in the world.
Apart from the amazing professional coaches working at the Academy, where many of them live to attend to the players full time, the Academy provides you with new, private and high quality facilities. 120000 m2 surface is specially and exclusively provided for the use and enjoyment of the players at the Academy. An important advantage of the Academy is that the programs are not crowded in order to offer the best quality. Furthermore, there are courts of all kind of surfaces and clay courts to work on a good tactical play and solid footwork.
The JC Ferrero-Equelite Tennis Academy is located in Villena , at the northwest of the province of Alicante, bordering at west on Castilla-La Mancha and Murcia, and at north on Valencia. It's an easily reachable location: 2 hours from Madrid by train, 30 minutes from Alicante by car, 20 minutes by train, 1 hour from Valencia by car. Villena is an old city and its most important monument is located at the top of the town: an ancient Arabic castle. At the foot of this fortress was established the original city centre. Since then, the surrounding population has been increasing and settling around the nearby farm lands. After the Reconquest the lords of the distinguished lineage of los Manueles, Aragón and Pacheco, established the capital of an extensive marquisate during many years, which had much influence on the national history.
The academy offers first-class rooms for parents and adults in the most exclusive area of the Academy, as well as a restaurant separated from the players canteen in order to make you feel comfortable while you are staying and visiting your children. Equelite is not only characterized by its wonderful sports facilities but also by its peaceful Rural Hotel “Equelite”. A few meters from the courts you can find a nice large garden with a pool. Around this garden there are cozy wooden houses.
This rural hotel is part of the Academy of high performance in which some of the best tennis players in the world, such as Juan Carlos Ferrero, Nicolás Almagro or Tita Torró, train. So, apart from enjoying this wonderful environment, you can enjoy a great variety of sports such as tennis, paddle tennis, cycling, running, football or golf at any level.The wooden houses are ensuite, have a small terrace and views to the garden, television, Wi-Fi, laundry service, air conditioning and private parking.
