Accommodation & Food
HOTEL DA ROCHA
A beautiful 4-star hotel in the centre of Praia Da Rocha town. A quick 1 minute walk to town and 10 minute walk to the courts. Each room is extremely spacious with 2 x TV, mini kitchen, couch and balcony. The hotel also has a newly refurbished gym and outdoor pool.
The journey from Faro airport takes around 45 minutes – an hour and half depending on what mode you take.
Yellowfish Transfers – Private transfers for individuals or groups. Type in ‘DeepDish’’ for 20% off.
Hoppa – Shared transfers, will take a bit longer but a lot cheaper than private transfer or taxi.
Please register yourself and pick up your camp goody bag from 7 – 8pm on Saturday in the hotel lobby.
Included in your package is a welcome dinner 8 – 9pm on Saturday 25th April. Following dinner we will be doing formal introductions and some ice breaker games so you can get to know your fellow campers.
Players will be allocated their groups depending on the information they provided in the group allocation form. The coaches will then use the first training session to assess the groups and change if needed.
Throughout the week coaches will look out for players who need to be pushed more or maybe a little out of their depth. Please always check the board before you go to your court.
WAR M UP
Prior to each session a coach will lead a warm up at the courts. We strongly advise that you attend the warm up to avoid injury.
All players will get the chance to work with a variety of coaches throughout the camp. Coaches will rotate on a sessional basis.
Coaches are available to be booked for extra sessions. The cost is 40 euros for an hour and half session and can have up to 8 players per session.
Please approach the coach you want to book directly and organise a suitable time.
Once booked, the coach will ask you what you want to work on in the session and create a bespoke session to suit your requirements.
Please pay the coach in cash after the session.
If there is a court free then grab it! Training sessions and tournaments take priority and you will be asked to vacate the court you are if it is needed, but if not then play as much as you like from sunrise to sundown.
Located at the courts will be a selection of Deep Dish Clothing. Feel free to try on and find a member of staff to help you if needed.
The courts are located around a 10 minute walk from the hotel. You can either go straight down to the beach from the hotel, turn left and walk along the boardwalk. Or turn directly left out of the hotel, walk along the cliff top and then down to the courts.
The courts will be situated directly outside Farol beach bar/restaurant.
Every day a sign up sheet will be put up on the noticeboard at the courts, you have up until 2pm to sign yourself up for that days tournament. From 2 – 3pm the tournament will be created and at 3pm registration will take place at the courts. If you forget to sign up for the tournament or are late for registration then you will be unable to play.
Participation in the tournaments is not compulsory and there will be additional courts for free play.
Every player on the camp will be given a number on the notice board. We will then randomly allocate numbers to each court to play a mini game. No matter your age or level this tournament is to get to know everyone on the camp.
Enter division 1 or 2 with a partner of the opposite gender.
Not for the light hearted! Players will be placed into teams of 6. Old school rules apply where you can only score on your serve and games will be timed. HOWEVER, this tournament is so unique as during your games, if your team let the ball hit the floor without touching it then your whole team has to drink one beer there and then!
The main event! Enter division 1 or 2 with your partner that you’ve paired up with from the camp and battle it out for the ultimate prize of Rocha Rumble champion!
Each team will consist of a men’s pair and women’s pair. These teams will then compete against other teams. The men will play the men and women play the women. If it is a tie then a mixed pairs game will be played in a deciding set.
3 yoga sessions will be run during the week. Please meet the instructor in the hotel reception and they will lead you down to the beach directly outside the hotel.
Please bring a towel and bottle of water.
Our masseuse will be available during the day. Please put your name on the sign up sheet to add yourself to the queue.
A deeper look into the game. Our head coaches will be taking you through the finer details of the game and growing your knowledge. This is not something you do not want to miss if you are looking to improve and play at a higher level.
This is your chance to get up close and personal with our coaching staff.
The talk will take place at the courts and therefore you will be able to ask anything from lifestyle, mindset, achieving goals, nutrition and any questions you have about the game and the technical/tactical side of the game.
POOL PARTY & AWARDS
The pool party will take place on Friday. We will be taking over the pool for an afternoon in the sun followed by the camp awards. After this is all done and dusted, the epic after party will be taking place in town.
Throughout the week our coaches and professional players will be playing a series of exhibition games on centre court whilst you sit back and sip cocktails in the bar court side.
FANCY DRESS NIGHT
Put on your fancy dress outfit on and party the night away. Theme will be decided via a poll closer to the camp date.
On The Rocks bar is around a 3 minute walk from the hotel and in the heart of Praia Da Rocha town. Each night we will set this as a meeting point for those who want to meet up and socialise outside of the court.
