Verudela Tennis Academy, Pula



The Verudela peninsula is located a few kilometres from the historical centre of Pula, Croatia

The Verudela peninsula in Croatia is situated a few kilometres away from the old historical heart of Pula. This is where the locals go to enjoy the rocky beaches during the day and spend the evening at the many restaurants and nightspots. The hotels on the peninsula enjoy magnificent, uninterrupted views of the warm Adriatic, the unspoilt coastline encourages exploration. Visitors can enjoy diving, boat trips to the local islands, water sports and a visit to the large aquarium.

For some years we have been running regular holidays to the Umag Tennis Academy in Katoro. The Verudela Tennis Academy is our new destination in Croatia. With over 15 tennis courts within a few minutes walk from the hotels, the Academy boasts a magnificent setting for enjoying your tennis holiday.
