Visiting tennis legends including Pat Rafter and the Zverev brothers also set to host guest clinics
Laidback Maldives island idyll Amilla Fushi has teamed up with LUX Tennis to provide professional, personalised tennis coaching served with passion by current and former ATP players. Complementing its exceptional tennis facilities, including two palm-fringed, floodlit hard courts and a clubhouse offering complimentary equipment hire, Amilla now offers top-class tailored coaching, practice programmes and fun events to inspire and challenge guests of all abilities to improve their strokeplay.
Whether it’s a private one-to-one or group session with a professional coach, or a fun filled game especially for the kids, LUX Tennis has the court covered. In addition to personalised private tuition and tennis ‘discovery’ sessions, LUX Tennis at Amilla Fushi offers a range of training programmes and challenges including Challenge The Pro, where guests can take on the pro in a tie break to win a free session; a Kids’ Tennis Clinic specially created for under 12s; Train Like a Pro drills up against the ball machine; and a service speed-gun challenge.
LUX Tennis at Amilla Fushi will also welcome some of the biggest names in tennis for one-off exhibitions and clinics, giving guests unrivalled access to some of the sport’s all-time greats. From 26 November – 3 December 2017, world number four Alexander ‘Sascha’ Zverev will return to Amilla with his brother and fellow pro Mischa Zverev for an exhibition to demonstrate first hand what it takes to win a one off contest. Guests will also have a chance to learn a thing or two from the brothers with a complimentary one hour tennis clinic at Amilla’s sister resort Finolhu, just a short speedboat ride away in Baa Atoll.
From 4-11 January 2018, tennis fans visiting Amilla Fushi will also have a unique opportunity to rally with former US Open Men’s Singles champion and World No. 1 Pat Rafter. As well as playing an exhibition match against the resort’s resident LUX Tennis Pro, Rafter will also play a one-on-one with the winner of Amilla’s festive tennis tournament for guests!
