Lux Tennis has created a new tennis programme especially for guests of Anantara Layan Phuket Resort. Former Top 10 ranked junior UK county player and Wimbledon junior champion, Joshua Elliot will be sharing his pro-tennis experience with guests.
Whatever skill-level, from beginners to budding professionals, our tennis packages offer enthusiasts an opportunity to benefit from one-on-one private lessons as well as a chance for kids to participate in a fun group tennis clinic.
Tennis has proven to improve metabolic function in adults, increase bone density and improve muscle tone, strength and flexibility. Private one-on-one lessons with Joshua allow guests to work on different aspects of their game with a focus on cardio, technique, strategy and most importantly, love of the game. 30-Minute classes start from ++THB 2500. If guests manage to beat our tennis pro in a full match, they can win a free session.
Every Saturday between 3pm to 4pm and Tuesday between 9am to 10am, Anantara Layan offers guests a complimentary Kids Tennis Clinic. Children can enjoy rallies and learn the fundamentals of the game in a fun and interactive way. Under the guidance of tennis coach Joshua Elliot, the clinic includes warm-up exercises and drill work with an emphasis on match and tournament play. The clinic is designed for beginners and intermediate players, helping them gain experience through daily practice.
Tennis helps to develop coordination, improve confidence and builds teamwork. It is greatly beneficial for a child’s physical and mental well-being. With consistent effort and play, children will learn technical fundamentals; how to maintain focus and a positive attitude, display good sportsmanship, and foster the concept of respect for their coach as well as for other players.
