“We want to thank Buenaventura for bringing us to Panama. We came from Equelite, the Juan Carlos Ferrero Academy, to contribute our experience and methodology with the players for a week. We hope that it has been of great benefit and pleasure to all. We loved the desire to work and the enthusiasm that everyone put into the lessons and we hope that it has been fruitful for everyone”.
The words of satisfaction from César Peniza, one of the teachers who were in charge of the technical part of the event, is a reflection of what was experienced during this week of intense training.
Through different activities that took place both on the court and off it, the coaches worked on technical, tactical, and mental concepts of the sport so that the assistants could apply them in their game and improve their skills.
It is important to remember that Juan Carlos Ferrero was the worldwide No. 1 player for eight consecutive weeks, winning 16 tournaments, including the Roland Garros in 2003. Today he is the coach of current world No. 1, Carlos Alcaraz.
For Juan Pablo Aguilera, director of the Buenaventura Sports Club, having Equelite teachers in Buenaventura reaffirms not only the Sports Club’s commitment to sport but also its commitment to “creating training experiences so that our players can improve their performance on the court.”
