Meet the Coaches
We are a team of professional tennis coaches with many years of experience teaching adults and kids how to play tennis.

In Spain he coached national and international players in several tennis academies including Laietà Sporting Club and Bruguera Tennis Academy. He is coaching beginners, junior competition players as well as adults of all levels. In the past he travelled with professional players to tournaments.
Apart from tennis Javier is an avid golfer and paddle tennis coach. He enjoys learning new sports like surfing that he practiced while living in Australia. He loves cooking and dancing salsa as well.
Gabriela Korolczuk is a Professional Tennis Coach who gained her title just this year. However, she has had passion for tennis since she was 7 years old when she first picked up the racquet in Poland. She played through University and won a couple of University tournaments. She never stopped playing socially and now she enjoys teaching tennis to adult beginners and intermediate players. Gabriela worked in Manly Tennis Academy in Sydney where she coached Cardio Tennis.

How we started Fit In Tennis
Our story is simple. It all happened so fast. We met in 2012 and instantly felt the connection and compatibility to start working on tennis projects together. We both went to Australia to teach and practice tennis as well as travel across this amazing country. We returned to Barcelona in 2014 and set up Fit In Tennis with the aim of creating opportunities for all to learn and play tennis.
Currently, we are based in Barcelona and therefore, most of our tennis programs take place in this inspiring and vibrant city. Yet, we love travelling and organizing international tennis camps in other countries. We both love playing tennis, staying fit and eating healthy.
