CourtFit are into their 7th year of running Tennis Holidays to the Algarve in Portugal.
We have a great relationship with the Algarve Tennis and Fitness Centre near Vale de Lobos. This allows us to use their amazing Tennis Courts along with Padel courts, a fitness studio, a swimming pool, Football Golf, Table Tennis and a great bar providing us with lunch every day and the occasional Cerveja!
You’ll stay in amazing Villas close to the courts and the beach, with lush grounds and a pool for you to enjoy in your down time. All rooms are either doubles or twins with ensuite (single supplement available if you want to have room to yourself).
We aim to take the ‘CourtFit’ attitude to Portugal meaning 4 days of Tennis and activity but never letting it get in the way of having a great time on and off the court!
We provide an airport transfer on the Wednesday evening and then Sunday late afternoon leaving 4 full days in between to soak up the Algarve sunshine on and off the court so you can explore the area, try out some different beaches and get to the supermarkets to top up on piri piri sauce!
Wednesday 11th October – Sunday 15th October 2023
2024 to be announced
Your transfer will meet you and the group at Faro Airport and drive the short journey (around 25 mins) to your Villa.
One of the CourtFit coaches will be there to greet you, show you around the Villa and welcome you to the sunny Algarve.
They will organise pickups and drop offs with you to the tennis centre for the next few days and point out where everything is.
If you are lucky enough to arrive early evening, we can help recommend local restaurants (a list will be on your schedule/itinerary upon booking the trip with CourtFit).
Prior to the trip we’ll also set up a ‘WhatsApp group’ to get everyone informed, share photos etc once out in Portugal.
We all meet at the tennis courts for 10.30am, where you’re welcome to have a quick coffee and Pasteis! Then onto the court for 11am to get warmed up as a group with some fun and games.
We will split you into your groups for the day determined by playing level and then with your coaches your session will last until 12pm.
Lunch is then 12pm – 1:30pm provided by CourtFit at the tennis centre (please let us know if any food allergies) where you get a healthy meal with salad and a drink all included in the price.
Back into your groups for the afternoon session for 1:30pm – 3.30pm leaving the rest of the afternoon to book in for a private lesson with one of the coaches or have a go at a vast range of other activities on offer at the club or surrounding area. These include Football golf, Padel Tennis, yoga, Stand up Paddle Boarding, Golf or a swim in the sea!
We will organise a place for dinner in the evening but feel free to make your own plans (not included in the price).
We aim to keep a similar program to day 1 in terms of the playing times and schedule. Hopefully by this point everyone will be in the correct group for their playing standard.
After the tennis we try to organise a big group activity like ‘Football Golf’ or ‘Padel Tennis’ where the groups can be mixed up and we have a mini tournament.
Sunset drinks on the beach will be followed by a group Dinner which we will book (not included in the price).
We have a later start to day 3 so you can have a nice lie in or do some exploring in the morning.
We can help arrange activities for you if you wish or we can recommend places to go and visit.
Tennis starts at 3:30pm for group coaching until 5.30pm.
Then we have a drink break to set ourselves up for the evening tournament 6pm – 8pm.
This is a chance to put all you have learnt over the past few days into practice!
Followed by a complimentary BBQ at the Clubhouse bar!
Be at the tennis centre for 9.45am to be on court at 10am. Please bring all bags! (also bring a towel if you want to use the showers)
We can use this final session to work on points raised by the previous nights matches!
Lunch will be at 12pm then we have a final Tennis session 1pm – 3pm where you can showcase your best ‘Hollywood Shots!’ and go for broke!
Depending on what time your flight is you are free to hang out at the tennis club and use the facilities or even book a court and keep playing.
There will be two airport transfers available after the Tennis has finished and these will be arranged as soon as we know everyone’s flight times before the holiday commences.
