As summer comes to a close, GMT is announcing that the “Full Time” and “After School” training schedules, as shown on our Programs page, will be resuming on Tues., August 11.
Contact Hans Gildemeister with any questions.
On April 15, Jai and Camilo arrived from Maryland and stayed a week at Gildemeister Tennis Academy, partaking in the room and board program offered.
Camilo trained at GMT last year as well, whereas Jai was new to the program.
In addition, Gijs and Hugo Fidler, who are highly ranked players from Aruba, trained at GMT for a week. This was not their first visit here because they came last summer for a few weeks.
Also, Victoria Cooksey, from Utah, is currently training at the academy for three weeks, where she will be competing in tournaments, and in July, six athletes from Chile will arrive.
The opportunity for tennis players from other states or countries to come train at GMT not only benefits them, but our local players as well. They are exposed to different cultures and different styles of play.
Mi Lan, who made it to the quarterfinals of the girl’s 14s at the Eddie Herr International Tournament this year, trained at Gildemeister Tennis Academy.
Go check out the following article, written by Scoop Malinowski, to learn about Hans Gildemeister’s thoughts on the up-and-coming talent Mi Lan, and what she, herself, thought of GMT.
“Could you imagine if Lan trains with me for about five or six months, how good she can be. Nobody knows. Lan is a great project but has to improve a few things. And teach her how to play big points and find her comfort spot on the court to go for winners.”Hans Gildemeister
