The Luxury Tennis Weekend package features a mix of both on court and off court activities that are designed to maximise a 3 night stay at the Pine Cliffs resort and at the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy.
It is recommended that all guests arrive at the resort on Thursday afternoon for check in and a welcome to the tennis academy from the resident team and your host and head coach for the weekend Nick Tzekos. Players are invited to take to the courts to have their game assessed and any goals for the weekend are clearly set out to the coaching team. Groups for the weekend ahead will also be able to be gauged as players are often at different levels of play.
The welcome meal on Thursday is included in the price of the package and is a great chance for players to socialize and find out more about each other with no doubt some tennis stories exchanged around the table and hopefully not too many drinks in preparation for the day ahead.
Friday and Saturday are scheduled to include 4 hours of coaching each day split into 2 x 2 hour coaching clinics. During this time, Nick and his team will be able to cover all aspects of your game using the academy philosophy “Movement & Repetition”. Players will be given chances to participate in a range of exercises and key drills in the morning and each afternoon is dedicated to more open play and match play situations.
Saturday evening is also a real highlight of your weekend with a trip for dinner into nearby Villamoura by transfer to discover the wonderful sights ad sounds of this picturesque area of the Algarve. Those not staying out too late may improve their chances of taking home the trophy in our Sunday morning “survivors” tournament which is a perfect end to the weekend and a chance to try your new found skills against both friends and other local guests.
The weekend is concluded with a short prize giving and summaries and guests are free to check out from 12 noon and depart based on their own flight schedule. Players wishing to stay and play more can use complimentary court time to play if they have later departure times.
