Phuket, Thailand (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
The Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has entered a partnership with Singapore-based tennis coaching provider, Savitar, to launch a multi-faceted Tennis Center for local residents and guests at the resort.
The Tennis Center, now open, consists of three newly renovated outdoor floodlit synthetic grass tennis courts and one indoor court. The Center has its own internationally recognized tennis director, James Corin. A menu of tennis lessons and services are now available for beginners to semi-professionals.
Phuket residents and guests staying at the Outrigger property can now enjoy a range of options such as private tennis lessons, group lessons, hitting sessions, mini tennis for 5-7 year olds, junior tennis for 7-12 year olds, teenage social tennis, fitness sessions, ladies morning tennis clinics and Friday evening social play.
The Tennis Center is a key element in Outrigger's aim to cater to guests seeking an active lifestyle holiday in Phuket, said the property's General Manager, Tony Pedroni. "With Savitar as a partner, Outrigger now combines great tennis facilities and high quality instruction at prices that make tennis fun and accessible to all our guests."
Tennis Director James Corin, from England, has over eight years of coaching experience in a variety of five-star clubs and resorts in the Middle East, USA and the Caribbean. In Dubai, he was development coordinator with responsibility for one of the emirate's largest junior tennis programs.
"Our aim is to deliver well structured, personalized tennis programs that foster consistent improvement in skills and great enjoyment of the game," said Corin. "We cover all aspects of the game, from fun group activities to tailor-made lessons for child or adult beginners, intermediate or highly accomplished players."
Pedroni added, "James is a tennis pro who enjoys working with all ages and levels from beginners to regional and nationally ranked players. He has much to offer our guests."
Cronin has qualifications from the Lawn Tennis Association, PTR, USTA, the Tennis Coaches Association and the UK Racket Stringers Association.
A Savitar 'Festival of Tennis' open day will be held on Saturday 1 March at the Center from 4-7 p.m. It is free to join and there will be mini tennis for kids, free coaching tips for adults, a barbecue and lucky draw.
The Tennis Center at the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort Beach Resort is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Email: tennis.phuketbeach(at)outrigger(dot)co(dot)th.

With over 280 participants and over 40 teams competing, the JTTL continues to build on its success and in 2010 JTT Mini was launched to offer an exciting tennis competition for 5-8 year olds using mini tennis nets and lower compression balls, improving young players' technique, performance, and enjoyment. The JTTL is sanctioned by the Singapore Tennis Association and we expect to develop additional events in future to further enhance match play opportunities for players in Singapore. http://www.savitargroup.com
