As an alternative to the rather over-promoted sporting activities in the UK, we would like to tempt you to consider a tennis weekend for your next corporate event. Whilst not perhaps as advertised as paint balling, clay pigeon shooting or quad biking, a tennis event can be just as fun, certainly as appreciated by those taking part and often just as price competitive.
Our tennis events at a choice of European destinations offer businesses an excellent opportunity to reward high performing staff or loyal customers. Tailored to your exact requirements and budget, we can provide a weekend or short break with a focus on tennis, but with a host of other activities included. With coaching included for all standards of players, we have found that those taking part interact well with other group members to provide an excellent ‘team building’ environment.
With accommodation options to suit you and your group from hotels, apartments or villas we can tailor make your perfect corporate getaway.

Step 3: Airport Transfers
The 50 delegates were arriving from a wide range of UK airports at a variety of times.
Hanski+ organised an efficient, private and immediate airport transfer service so all delegates were met at Alicante airport by a driver and transported to La Manga Club Resort without delay maximising their time in resort.
At the end of their stay all delegates again benefited from a efficiently designed, private and immediate transfer service.
All vehicles were fully licenced and insured 8 seat minibuses with professional drivers guaranteeing a safe, reliable and efficient service experience.
Step 4:Tennis & Golf Lessons, Tee times and Equipment Hire
Tennis & Golf Lessons : there was a multitude of different requests from this group and it was our pleasure to use of experience and local knowledge to ensure each delegate enjoyed a bespoke experience. Here is an insight into this;
- A group of adult beginner tennis lessons with a private tennis coach.
- A small group of golfers who wanted specific advice regarding the challenges provided by the West course from a golf professional.
- A 3 day spa treatment package for a non-golfer and tennis player in the group.
- Several rounds of golf for groups who just wanted to enjoy a social game on the North and South courses.
We created a full itinerary of activities throughout the groups 3 night stay which members could choose from to ensure everyone had a memorable experience.
Step 5: Sightseeing day out in the beautiful city of Cartagena
Not all of the member of the grup wanted to make use of the fabulous sports facilities each day. We discussed other possibilities for the group and decided upon a sightseeing day trip tot eh wonderful Roman city of Cartagena.
The group were taken by privately hire coach to the city located just 30 minutes from La Manga Club Resort.
Here they started their day with a private boat tour to see this amazing cities glorious castles part of its ancient sea defences.
Next there was time for a wonderful lunch in a street cafe in one of the cities vibrant ancient plazas.
After lunch it was time for a guided tour of the Roman amphitheatre one of the worlds best preserved ancient Roman sites.
The day gave the delegates a real feel of the wonderful cultural heritage in this part of Spain.
Simply put, we would not trust our corporate get away trips with any other company. We have used Hanski+ in the past for our ski holidays and now we have found the perfect summer addition to our programme of events. We would unreservedly recommend the Hanski+ team due to their professional attitude, attention to detail and the care given to each individual in the group.
