Hosted Tennis Weeks at the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy, Algarve

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.

The Annabel Croft Tennis Academy is found on the grounds of the Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve, Portugal. The resort is in the heart of the Algarve, located only a short drive from the wonderful Villamoura and Val de Lobo golfing estates and features many wonderful attractions for sports fanatics, families and groups.

By their very nature these courses are only available on specific weeks and sell out very quickly. We offer an average of 4 places per coach to ensure a quality teaching environment, so early booking is recommended.
