The status of British tennis has never been higher with Andy and Jamie Murray both sitting proudly at the top of the world rankings, and lovers of the game can launch their 2017 seasons in style by taking part in a new tournament at Sicily’s deluxe Verdura Resort next spring.
Taking place from March 17-20, 2017, the inaugural ‘Verdura Tennis Trophy Deluxe’ offers men and women of all abilities the chance to brush up their techniques and compete under sunny skies in a range of different categories.
Players can participate in a variety of singles and doubles competitions during the four-day event at Verdura’s first-class tennis academy, with pre-tournament practice and expert post-event analysis training also included in the five-star programme.
Packages start from €630 (approx. £545) per person which, as well as including tournament entry, feature an array of benefits including three nights’ full-board accommodation in a Deluxe Room and complimentary access to the resort’s award-winning spa facilities.
All prices are based on two people sharing a room and include VAT.
Set amongst a rich natural backdrop of rocky mountain ranges and Sicilian olive and orange groves, Verdura’s tennis academy features six outstanding floodlit clay courts and is the ideal location for a sporting break.
As well as serving up the perfect way to launch the 2017 tennis season, the new luxury competition also gives players the opportunity to enjoy Verdura’s wide selection of other five-star facilities.
Nestling next to the Mediterranean in 230 hectares of stunning landscape, Verdura Resort – a Rocco Forte hotel – has quickly risen to become one of Europe’s elite contemporary, luxury sports and lifestyle destinations since opening in 2009.
Set on Sicily’s southern coast between Agrigento and the fishing city of Sciacca, an 80-minute drive from Trapani and Palermo airports, the resort features 203 rooms and suites – all with a sea view. As well as tennis, guests can enjoy numerous other sports and leisure facilities including two 18-hole championship golf courses and extensive practice amenities, an array of different watersports, a 60m two-tiered infinity pool, a 170sqm fully-equipped gym and an award-winning 4,000sqm spa complex.
