A Diary from the 2018 Hosted Week at Umag Academy

Our hosted holidays are tennis breaks which are managed by a member of our staff, a proficient tennis player. The staff member acts as a guide and representative throughout the trip, helping to organise communal meals and tennis matches. These holidays are particularly appealing to single travellers, since they can join up with our group and enjoy socialising with the group. We of course welcome couples and groups on the holidays too.

In May 2018, we ran our fourth holiday week to the Umag Academy in Croatia. This trip was another big success and we’ve got some details of what happened during the trip below.
