Tennis holidays

We've been working for a few years now with Mark Petchey, ex-GB tennis player and Andy Murray's former coach, to take the tennis offering at our beachclubs to the next level. Together, we've designed a programme to enable you, whatever your level, to come away from your holiday a more confident player.

Mark Petchey tennis programme with inclusive coaching

You can expect the best of the best in tennis coaching with our Mark Petchey tennis programme. The programme runs daily at most of our beachclubs, with free group coaching sessions run by expert coaches, trained by Mark himself.

Our coaching sessions are grouped by ability, so whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re ready to pick up next year’s Grand Slam, you can practice with others of a similar level. And at the end of every week there’s an informal tournament (our very own Wimbledon) for all players.

Free play and social tennis

Hit the courts at any time during the day when coaching isn’t taking place for extra practice. Book a court, grab some kit and enjoy a match with a friend; get together with a group for the ultimate competitive afternoon; or simply put into practice the skills learnt from our professional coaches. Between sessions, coaches are on hand to offer friendly advice to get your tennis in tip-top condition.


You'll also be able to join in with some social tennis. Offered on most days, our tennis coaches will get you playing a series of double matches. It's a great way to meet new people and brush up on those skills. Winner buys the first round?
