  1. Rona Foster on

    I stayed at the Bellaluz Apartments in La Manga club, organised through the Roger Walker tennis holiday group and I must say the accommodation and coaching provided was excellent. I was met at Alicante airport in a luxury VW people carrier and was the sole occupant for the 90 minute transfer to the resort. My original apartment was currently under repair so I was therefore upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with balcony at no extra cost. A welcome drinks meeting was arranged on the first afternoon so that we could meet our fellow guests in the same coaching group and then met the following morning at 9.30 to commence our daily two hour coaching programme after selection into various groups. The coaches were excellent and sussed out our tennis problems/techniques pretty quickly and I felt that my game improved a lot during the week when we played in the various tournaments organised at La Manga.
    The communication between myself and the Roger Walker group was extremely easy and it was always straightforward to speak to someone for any last minute questions. I cannot recommend the Roger Walker tennis holidays highly enough.

    We stayed at the Bellaluz apartments in La Manga and attended the one week tennis academy. The accommodation was excellent and within 7 minutes walk of the tennis academy. We attended the tennis academy for 2 hours per day and found the level of coaching was very high with the coaches being experienced clay court players. Bellaluz village offers a number of good restaurants and we also tried others outside the village but within 15 minutes walk. We particularly enjoyed the pitch and putt course, whch is opposite the entrance to the tennis academy. The swimming pool in Bellaluz offered comfortable area to relax after the morning tennis sessions with snacks and drinks available.

    If you are looking for a reasonably priced tennis holiday then I would definitely recommend the package offered by Roger Walker.
