Hosted Tennis Week in Croatia, 4* Hotel Sol Umag

Your Host, Kevin Wentworth

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.

Many of our special weeks and weekends, exclusive to our clients, are based at the Umag Tennis Academy in Croatia.

Tennis at Sol Umag

We think Croatia is a perfect destination to enjoy a week improving your tennis. The courts at the Hotel Sol Umag are run by the Umag Academy. The academy is a state-of-the-art tennis centre and has been chosen as the LTA’s official overseas training base. All the coaches that are employed by the Umag Academy are fully qualified and licensed tennis coaches.

Your coaching for this tennis week will be played on the superb clay courts dotted around the hotel. Coaching is suitable for all age groups and levels of ability. We are sure you will enjoy the convenience of having your hotel room so close to the tennis courts and some rooms may well overlook the tennis courts for those of you who really want to play, eat and sleep tennis!

A message from the tennis host: Kevin Wentworth

Your Host, Kevin Wentworth

Having had the privilege of visiting many tennis holiday destinations across the world, this is without doubt one of the finest venues to play tennis. There are a staggering 350 tennis courts in the Istria region, so yes, tennis is most definitely the no 1 sport in Umag.

Umag itself is a stunning resort with beautiful walking, cycling and jogging paths amongst lush green gardens adjoining the pristine waters of the Adriatic Sea. The many cafes, restaurants and bars create a vibrant atmosphere in Umag. I know this will add to your enjoyment of the area.

Our tennis programme is filled with technical and tactical advice. Although there is real work carried out in improving your tennis, we still have lots of fun. We understand that this is a holiday! During the week I am sure you will make lots of new friends and experience Istrian hospitality.

Our tennis programme will include coaching sessions to understand

  • Footwork
  • Forehand & Backhand
  • Slice & Top spin
  • Volley & Smash
  • 1st & 2nd Serves
  • The new “Zonal Tactical Tennis Strategy” system to better help you understand shot selection and tactical play

I look forward to personally welcoming you in Croatia and helping you to have a fantastic tennis holiday!!
