We recently sent Alison (in pink), our tennis ‘champ’ to a tennis centre in Richmond, to spend the day with former professional tennis player Annabel Croft, where with a small group she had lessons with both Annabel and Miles Maclagan (formerly part of the team of LTA coaches to Andy Murray). Having enjoyed playing tennis for many years Alison commented that this was one of the best coaching sessions she had ever experienced.
One of our favourite resorts in Cyprus, Aphrodite Hills has recently set up the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy and Annabel herself will be hosting a week of tennis related activities from 31st March 2013. This is a really great opportunity for some excellent coaching but spaces are limited so if you are interested please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call us on 01428 658 777.
Situated at the Aphrodite Hills Resort near Paphos, the Academy has 9 floodlit tennis courts (4 red clay and 5 green-set hard courts) and runs a programme that is suitable for players of all ages and all standards. The Academy has a highly motivated team of 14 professional coaches and there are various flexible packages available, for individuals or groups – something to suit everyone. You can play as little or as much tennis as you want. There is also a friendly bar where you can sit and chat with coaches and fellow tennis enthusiasts after the rigours of the day!
At Aphrodite Hills you will find many activities for both children (from toddler to teenager) and adults with the recent additions of crazy golf, archery, horse riding and segways. The Pirates Village kids’ club is always popular and recently a shaded playground has been built on the beach. For a spot of relaxation the spa offers an excellent range of treatments. There is a new supermarket for those in self catering accommodation and a medical centre. The hotel has recently introduced an all inclusive option making it a perfect family choice.
Aphrodite Hills also has a championship golf course – visually spectacular, the course expands through olive and carob trees and is built on two plateaus of a mountain, separated by a dramatic ravine. The golf club also has an Academy for all levels. Again, packages can be arranged.
So if you are a keen golfer, tennis enthusiastic and have a family of all ages, this is the perfect resort for you and with a fabulous spa, there is always a quiet retreat to escape to when you need some well deserved R&R.
