João Cunha e Silva

I have been involved in tennis for more than 40 years: 16 years as a world class player at a Junior and Pro level. For the following 15 years I have been coaching players, professional or not, to fulfill their potential and achieve their objectives in tennis. In my coaching career I had exceptional and rewarding experiences through my long collaboration with Federico Gil, Rui Machado, Pedro Sousa, Catarina Ferreira and Bárbara Luz, among others.

These projects were successfully completed thanks to the committment and dedication of my team and myself.

The hallmark of our philosophy and methodology is based on our technical expertise in a cosy and pleasant environment. Every single player is provided with a tailor-made training program, in line with his/her level and objectives.

Our Academy coaches are passionate and demanding. They challenge themselves every day to offer the best possible coaching solutions and support our players throughout their tennis and personal development.

The Cunha e Silva Tennis Academy staff has been improving and developing their coaching methods for almost 15 years to allow their players to fulfill their potential. Besides the experience, you can also enjoy our top notch facilities located in the beautiful and sunny Lisbon area.
I am looking forward to welcoming you for a week, a month, or several years of training.
