World-renowned tennis coach, Patrick Mouratoglou and The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburón have announced a strategic partnership to open the first Mouratoglou Tennis Center in Florida. Opening in early summer 2024, a variety of training camps, private lessons, leagues, and retreats will deliver a premium tennis experience for both resort guests and members utilizing the proven Mouratoglou methodology based on customization and unparalleled instruction to enhance the skills of every level of player.


The choice of Florida and The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburon, as the location for the next tennis center is no coincidence, as the luxury resort is the perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts ready for an active retreat.

"Florida is, for me, one of the best tennis destinations. I have memories here with each of the players I've coached, from Serena Williams to Holger Rune. Florida's passion for tennis and its status as a sports hub (with the Miami Open) make it the perfect place for our expansion", states Patrick Mouratoglou. "The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburón's commitment to excellence aligns with our vision, making it the ideal partner for this venture."
