ZSC Academy, which is set to open on September 6, will offer year-round coaching for all abilities
Abu Dhabi's Zayed Sports City has announced plans to open a new academy for tennis and ice skating next month.
ZSC Academy, which is set to open on September 6, will offer year-round coaching through a series of programmes for sports enthusiasts and elite athletes.
The Tennis Academy will provide up to 800 coaching sessions each month, serving more than 250 players. The academy will offer high performance squad, private and semi-private lessons, group lessons, cardio sessions, ladies-only sessions and lessons specially designed for children as young as three years old, news agency WAM reported.
It added that the ZSC Skating Academy will build on the success of the Learn to Skate programme, working with the Ice Skating Institute of Asia to certify coaches and develop the curriculum.
The academy will provide up to 160 sessions each month, serving more than 300 individuals.
Barry Bremner, general manager of Zayed Sports City, said: "Our track record of delivering impactful and memorable experiences around sports and entertainment and a growing public demand for high quality coaching has led us to launch ZSC Academy.
"Projects such as the Abu Dhabi Wilson Tennis Cup, Learn to Skate and our community-focused sports programmes, including National Sports Festival and TrainZSC, allow us take on this venture with confidence. I have no doubt that like these other projects, ZSC Academy will also deliver excellent programmes."
