The IMG Future Stars Tournament is designed to offer a multidimensional experience to all players, coaches and parents participating in the organization. This requires participants to stay for the entire 7 days of the tournament, regardless of the results.
A range of fun sports and social activities will be organized daily along with cultural experiences in the historic center of Athens.
The week’s schedule includes a series of mandatory educational workshops for players, parents and coaches following each day’s matches. These mandatory workshops include: panels and discussions hosted by executives from WTA, ATP, Nike, IMG and more, to educate families about being a professional tennis player; speakers who are experts in the nutrition and wellness fields to help athletes understand what they need to fuel and heal their bodies, as well as two coaching master-classes with top ATP/WTA coaches.
