Why should you choose this tennis holiday?
The Algarve is a really fantastic tennis destination and perfect for weekend breaks and family holidays. In resort you can expect wonderful attention to detail and extra such as having the beach a short walk from the tennis courts is a real bonus. There is a range of things to do within close proximity of the resort once you have finished playing as well, making this a popular choice for visitors every year.
The Annabel Croft Tennis Academy at Pine Cliffs Resort, Algarve is a wonderful place to spend time on court and work at your tennis. It offers a fantastic tennis coaching programme that is suitable for the whole family. The resort is very family focused and there are always large numbers of junior players looking to participate in the programme. The large number of guests interested in playing tennis makes tournaments and social tennis highly popular activities in the timetable when they are scheduled in. The programme runs throughout the year but the academy is especially busy during the school holiday periods where booking in advance is advisable.
The programme offers a wide range of coaching services including the academies renowned group based coaching courses, as well as private and shared tennis lessons, court hire and other tennis services.
Players choosing to participate in either the adult or junior tennis courses will experience classes using the academies philosophy of “Movement & Repetition” that has been designed by Annabel Croft Using unique hitting sequences, players are encouraged to focus intently on their footwork for each shot in order to gain better control of the ball. In addition, small group ratios encourage a high level of hitting opportunities for each player in order to work on technical and tactical mastery of specific shots and situations. The aim is to get players to gain confidence in all areas of their game, get fitter through good quality training and really enjoy the time spent on court working on improving their game.
For our younger junior players, the tennis programme at Pine Cliffs is based on the success of the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy in London. The courses on offer still have the same philosophy at heart but feature more time learning the basics of the game. These courses also feature some great games (our Cookie Tennis Challenge is legendary!) as well as certificates, stickers, activity book and trophies for our players of the week!
The Annabel Croft Tennis Academy at Pine Cliffs features the following facilities:
The facilities are high quality surfaces with some of the only clay courts available in the Algarve. They are suitable for all standards of tennis from recreational to professional play. Court hire can be purchased for players own use either as individual hours or as discounted blocks of court time. Rackets and balls are available for purchase or hire along with clothing, footwear and accessories.
One of the unique features of the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy is its use of UK based coaches and teaching framework overseas. Using LTA guidelines for licensed tennis coaches, our coaching team comprises of predominantly British tennis professionals during the peak season.
