Tennis holidays

Whether you want a gentle knock up, a social game or feel it's time to improve your strokes, you'll find our facilities and our resident coaching staff are outstanding. With tennis courts spread across our beach resorts in Greece and Turkey, there is plenty of free use of courts we provide, with free loan of the latest HEAD racquets and balls for coaching and casual play.

There are many ways you can make your holiday a tennis holiday with Mark Warner. If you are looking to advance your game, or just starting out, we have a number of LTA approved coaching programmes to choose from, including our popular intensive tennis weeks and our Classic and Xpress courses. Alternatively, you may prefer one-on-one tuition to get the most out of your session.

Groups and tennis clubs love our holidays

A variety of tennis centres across our resorts and a strong team of fully qualified tennis coaches enables us to host groups of keen tennis players, be it from a club or just a group of friends.

Groups can take advantage of the programmes we offer in a number of ways, from simply booking to come away together and signing up for group or private lessons or taking things to the next level and booking on to one of our weekly courses or our ever popular Intensive Tennis weeks.

Our Intensive Tennis Weeks take place this summer at Paleros Beach Resort on 19th May and 29th September, and Kamari Beach Resort on 1st June and 12th October. The courses will be led by Andrew Parsons.

Mini Tennis

Tennis coaching is not just for adults.  We run LTA children's tennis courses for age 3 years upwards. We take children's tennis just as seriously as we do the adults. Our courses for younger players are all about fun, encouragement and learning new skills. Sessions are made up of small groups, split according to age and ability.

WHAT TENNIS LEVEL ARE YOU?

Families

On our tennis holidays, we want to make sure that everyone is comfortable with the level of tennis they are playing and the people they are playing with.

That's why we ask our guests to give us a rough guide as to what level they are, especially when booking our Xpress, Classic or intensive tennis weeks.

Tennis Xpress

  • I have never played tennis and have little or no racquet sport experience.
  • I have played some tennis without instruction. I'''d like to learn the strokes and start to serve.

Classic course

  • I used to play regular tennis but am rusty. I need to update my game and get back into tennis with drills and match play.
  • I can rally at slow pace and would like to increase consistency with my ground strokes, serve and hold my own when playing matches.
  • I am comfortable all round, have a reasonable serve but would like to learn how to apply slice and topspin to my ground strokes/serves.
  • I play regularly and can rally consistently giving and receiving spins. I can direct my serve to either side of the service box.
  • I have a strong game and reasonably solid ground strokes & I enjoy playing at the net. My first serve is quite good but need to develop a second serve with more topspin/slice.
  • I play at a good club level & have an all-round game. I understand match tactics and enter leagues and play team matches.

Intensive Tennis week

  • I am fairly comfortable all round, have a reasonable serve but would like to learn how to apply slice and topspin to my ground strokes/serves.
  • I play regularly and can rally consistently giving and receiving spins. I can direct my serve to either side of the service box.
  • I have a strong game and reasonably solid ground strokes & I enjoy playing at the net. My first serve is quite good but need to develop a second serve with more topspin/slice.
  • I play at a good club level & have an all-round game. I understand match tactics and enter leagues and play team matches.
