If your serve needs a service or you want to fix your forearm smash – here’s your chance to learn to play tennis with Annabel Croft.
The former British female number one tennis star has teamed up with one of the UK’s top yoga coaches Jo Arthur to offer a retreat at the luxury Pine Cliffs Resort in Portugal.
Taking place at the Algarve resort’s Annabel Croft Tennis Academy from October 8-11, 2015, the weekend will give guests the chance to perfect their yoga positions and hone their tennis skills in sessions personally coached by Annabel.
Yoga is fast catching on with tennis players – with Andy Murray creditding Bikram Yoga for his improved physical and mental performance.
A recent yoga ‘convert’, Annabel has been inspired by Jo’s teaching, saying; “Yoga is becoming my new passion, and Jo is a brilliant teacher. I leave her classes ‘floating’, supple and energised.”
The new retreat will enable guests to experience the complementary benefits of combining practising yoga and playing tennis, with Annabel personally coaching lessons and taking part in informal matches and Jo teaching two yoga classes per day.
The retreat is open to men and women and costs £750 per person, including accommodation at the five-star Sheraton Algarve Hotel at Pine Cliffs Resort; a specially-created half board wellness menu; resort transfers from Faro airport and access to the Pine Cliffs Goes Active health and fitness club. Flights are not included.
