Mark Warner’s Phokaia Beach Resort is the perfect destination for your next tennis holiday in Turkey. Our state of the art tennis facility has four floodlit tennis courts set up in 2 groups end to end. Our team of professional LTA accredited coaches are also on hand to put you through your paces, whatever your standard.
On the first day of your holiday come along to our "Festival of Tennis" and chat to our coaches about your game. There will always be a court available for social play, with organised Social sessions each evening, and you can borrow HEAD tennis racquets and balls throughout your stay. For those that want to take things a little more seriously we offer a range of LTA designed courses for both adults and children.
Over the course of the week we offer our Classic and Xpress courses for adults with groups split according to ability. Our coaches also offer private one-to-one tuition for adults and courses for children of 3 years upwards too.
As well as our professional coaching programme and classes, we also have fun tennis activities to get involved in for those who want to play in a relaxed and social environment. We offer social tennis, where you can practice with other guests at the same level as you and enjoy the company of old and new friends. We also offer a very popular beach tennis game, combining elements of volleyball and tennis on the beautiful waterfront of Phokaia.
