HISTORY & CAMPUS
HDN ACADEMY: HISTORIC TENNIS & STUDIES PROGRAMMES IN NIMES (FRANCE), SINCE 1997
HDN Academy, spread out over 40 hectares of scrubland, offers one of the best tennis & studies programmes in France.
The family spirit that we cultivate has always been our defining feature and our strength. In fact, HDN Academy is one of France’s oldest and most tried and tested providers of sports & studies programmes.
Each pupil is supported individually in achieving their goals.
HDN Academy: international training centre
Created in 1997, our tennis & studies programme is one of the best international sports & studies training centres, boasting an idyllic setting in the Nîmes scrubland (south of France).
THE CONVIVIALITY OF A FAMILY AND THE EXCELLENCE OF AN ELITE
HDN Academy’s history and philosophy
Having received national and international acclaim since its creation as a training centre in 1977 by Georges Deniau (former coach of the French Davis Cup team), HDN Academy launched its tennis & studies programmes in 1997 with Cédric Nouvel and Pascal Courtois at the helm.
HDN Academy provides the conviviality of a family and the excellence of an elite.
We work with every pupil to identify a life goal that suits them while ensuring they receive excellent tuition at the CM2 level through to completing their BAC, BTS or higher level studies.
At Hauts de Nîmes, we seek to instil certain values in our pupils: solidarity, conscientiousness, respect and a good attitude towards work… All within the friendly and familial environment that is so particular to HDN Academy.

ONE OF FRANCE’S BIGGEST TENNIS ACADEMIES WITH 21 COURTS
An exceptional site with exceptional facilities
Our facilities make it possible to group all of our activities together on a single site. In doing so, we minimise travel time and optimise efficiency. This “all in one place” set-up allows for time optimisation, which in turn helps us achieve two goals: excellent academic tuition and a high level tennis programme.

OUR FITNESS TRAINING ROOM
The importance of fitness training
An athlete must be able to prevent injuries and prepare their body to practice their specific sports discipline. We attach great importance to this.
OUR CLASSROOMS AT THE HEART OF OUR CAMPUS
Classrooms for small groups on campus
We have 7 classrooms where we teach small groups of pupils (3 to 10 per class maximum).
A LARGE CHOICE OF BEDROOM ACCOMMODATION FOR YOUR CHILD
The conviviality of our boarding facilities
Bedrooms with 2 or 3 beds, individual rooms and supervised studios are available for our pupils.
We provide separate areas for girls and boys and also take pupil ages into account. All of our pupil sleeping accommodation is under video-surveillance.
To ensure they abide by the values of tolerance and respect, each of our pupils is subject to a code of conduct that helps everyone to live together as a community.
CATERING TAILORED TO THE NEEDS OF OUR PLAYERS
Self-service catering tailored to our athletes
Our full board self-service catering provided from Monday to Friday is also available should you want it (by reservation) at weekends and during school holidays.
The food we serve is tailored to the needs of our young athletes.
ORGANISATION OF SPORTS MEDECINE ACTIVITIES ON OUR CAMPUS
Health and fitness monitoring
We work with a sports doctor and have a physiotherapist and osteopath visit our campus several times a week, allowing us to offer pupils comprehensive health and fitness monitoring, to which we attach unquestionable importance, both when it comes to prevention and therapeutic treatment.
HDN ACADEMY SHUTTLES AT THE HEART OF OUR SYSTEM
HDN Academy’s internal shuttles
Our minibuses and drivers help ensure our pupils get to and from the sports facilities where they need to be every day. We also provide shuttles to and from the train station on Fridays and Sundays so that pupils can travel to and from the Academy.
ONE OF FRANCE’S BIGGEST PADEL CENTRES
8 padel courts on the HDN Academy site
With 4 players on court at a time, padel is a social sport par excellence and has an important place on our campus. We have no fewer than 8 courts, making us one of the region’s biggest padel facilities.
Given the growth in popularity that Padel is currently experiencing nationally, we’ve innovated to create France’s first academy based Sports & Studies Padel programme!
