Team spirit and unity at Weil begins with our Coaching Staff. Head Coach Mohamed Badran ( EGY) leads an International High Performance Coaching Staff from Spain, Bulgaria, Brazil, Japan, England and more, who work as a team to support the dreams & goals of our student-athletes.

Ojai, California, home to Weil Academy, is a magical tennis place. The picturesque Ojai Valley, in the heart of Southern California, is minutes away from the Pacific Ocean beaches with an average of 340 days of sunshine every year! Ojai is truly tennis paradise, and hosts the PAC 12 Conference Men’s & Women’s Tennis Championships every April!
At Weil, we prepare & place our student-athletes into the top colleges in the US in order to study & compete for their college team first, then pursue a professional career after College, if they choose to do so.

Small class sizes (10:1) and personal attention give our elite, student-athletes the academic support they need to excel In the classroom! A morning class schedule of UC Approved Courses also gives Weil students the preparation and training time they need each day to reach their goal to play for an NCAA College Tennis Team.
Training in a dynamic team environment with other highly motivated students from the US and around the world is critical to our students’ success. Our belief is that when players focus on helping each other improve each day, they feel they are part of a team, which is healthier, more fun, & our players improve faster!
At Weil, “community” is our most sacred aspect of Academy life. We encourage our players to support and help each other, to treat each other as extended family, make lifelong friends & have fun together! Treating each other with compassion & tolerance and valuing personal integrity are all hallmarks of our full-time Academy experience. And making some Brazilian sweets together with Chef Jose is a delicious blast.
