La Manga Club featured in The Sunday Times list of the best six overseas resorts to improve your tennis. The high standard of coaching and facilities made La Manga a natural choice for the compilers of the list.

Below is what was written about La Manga Club's tennis tuition:

This is a first-rate academy offering individual lessons and group classes, with training options of ten or 15 hours a week.

Miguel Dios, once ranked 1,000th in the world, gives me a tough hour-long initiation into playing high-bouncing top-spin shots on one of the resort’s 20 red-clay courts. It is exhausting, but he conveys the importance of getting a good length on returns, or losing.

Fraser Wright, the director of coaching, instructs me on how to use my legs more as the power base of my shots. He also gives great tips on volleys — "punch through the shot and get your head closer to the ball!" It’s a laid-back resort — another good family choice.
