DOMINIKA CIBULKOVÁ KIDS ACADEMY is preparation for a professional tennis academy where DAVISCUP and FEDCUP representatives of Slovakia Norbert Gombos, Lukas Lacko, Jarmila Gajdosova and Kristina Kucova have grown up and trained. Our tennis academy is located in Bratislava (Turbínová 1). Tennis school is suitable for children from 3 to 12 years. The main idea of our kid’s academy and tennis academy is to provide complex player development starting at 3 years old up to professional career.

Training programs for kids who are starting with tennis:

We are offering group practices which are happening 1-2x a week, every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon for kids who are just starting with tennis.

Tennis practices are designed for kids 3-6 years old. In a case that kids would like to continue with tennis as a part of free time activity, it is possible until 8 years of age.

Group practices focus on:

  • meeting the tennis ball and racket
  • learning proper warm up
  • catching and throwing a ball
  • running in different competitions
  • building a positive relationship with sport
  • developing motor skills and coordination

There is a possiblity to join U8 program where we start with Start, RaisingPro and Profi program.

Programs under 8 are focused on:

  • basic strokes (forehand, backhand)
  • movement to all sides
  • correct standing during strokes

It is important to realize that kids who attend school on daily basis go from moving and playing all day long to sitting around 5-6 hours in school. It is our recommendation to move (have practice) every afternoon.

Training program for kids who are under 12 and playing tennis:

Kids who can participate are 10-12 years old.

Trainings are arranged based on individual agreement with parents and during times where it is possible to combine school activites and tennis trainings.

This program is focused on:

  • moving to professional tennis balls
  • creating personal game
  • developing tactical thinking
  • practicing tennis matches
  • developing motor skills and coordination

We divide practices into groups (4 players), sparrings (2 players), and individual practices. Individual practices are focused on learning all strokes and proper technique. During sparrings, we are working on different match situations (imitation of real match). Group practices are focused on repetition of known strokes. During group practices, players compete among each other, compare to each other and learning the right competing spirit.

There must be a balance between these practices since every player has to learn how to play, repeat it a lot and also try it out.
