Our 2017 programme is now available. By their very nature these courses are only available on specific weeks and sell out very quickly. We offer an average of 6 places per coach to ensure a quality teaching environment, so early booking is recommended.

Hosted Tennis Weeks at Umag Tennis Academy, Croatia

As an experienced tour operator with many years of arranging specialist tennis holidays, we are pleased to be organising a number of Hosted Tennis Weeks as an integral part of our extensive tennis programme. These Hosted Weeks and Weekends are accompanied by a member of our own staff, a proficient tennis player, who acts as a guide and representative throughout the trip, helping organise communal evening meals and tennis mix-ins. These tennis holidays appeal particularly to single travellers, but we welcome couples or groups of friends.

Many of our special weeks and weekends, exclusive to our clients, are based at the Umag Tennis Academy in Croatia.

Tennis at Umag Tennis Academy

We think Croatia is a perfect destination to enjoy a week improving your tennis. “The Mediterranean, the way it once was” is the slogan of the Croatian Tourism and the country boasts some of the most beautiful coastline and pristine clear sea anywhere in Europe. The academy is a state-of-the-art tennis centre and has been chosen as the LTA’s official overseas training base.

Coaching is suitable for all age groups and levels of ability. Umag is rightly proud of its partnerships with Goran Ivanišević and the Croatian Tennis Association.

Being situated in the Katoro Resort means there is plenty to do beyond the tennis. Relax on the fantastic beaches or keep active with other sports like football, handball, volleyball or cycling.

What does the Academy offer?

  • Choice of 2 or 4 hours coaching per day.
  • Maximum 4 players per coach.
  • On-court exercises.
  • Tennis strategy and tactics on court.
  • Conditioning training on the court and in the gym, 60 minutes per day.
  • A camp t-shirt.
