I joined Paul’s 2018 tennis trip to Biograd na Moru, Croatia. I’d spent a couple of years getting back into tennis and my forehand was still a bit shaky. The clay was initially a challenge as I’d never played on the surface before. After intensive time on the court, I felt my game and forehand had improved and I really enjoyed the last afternoon of competitive matches. The setting is beautiful with courts next to the hotel and great facilities. We had a good group of players and had some entertaining meals at a local restaurants with great steaks and wine. The days were sunny with a little breeze to keep us cool!

I had an excellent trip to Biograd na Moru in Croatia on one of Paul’s tennis tours. The travel arrangements were straightforward and well organized and the hotel was a short walk away from the impressive tennis centre where we were well looked after. The coaching was first class and it was a fantastic experience to play on clay with pleasant warm sunshine every day. I would recommend the trip to anyone looking to improve their tennis and have an enjoyable few days away.

I attended one of Paul's tennis trips to Croatia, it was a well organised 3 days of tennis, comprising of morning and afternoon sessions with excellent drills and team format play. The hotel had great facilities with a swimming pool for a nice way to relax in the evening and we even had time to take in some of the local sights. I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable!

I thoroughly recommend going on a tennis holiday with Paul Bonnington! Paul’s enthusiasm is infectious and the four hours of high quality coaching each day was such good fun. Playing tennis in a beautiful location and warm sunshine is an experience not to be missed. Off court, the facilities were excellent, and it was great to relax with friends over a convivial dinner after an enjoyable day’s tennis. In a nutshell – excellent tennis, excellent coaching, and lots of fun.

Very enjoyable 3 night trip to Biograd na Moru, Croatia for a tennis break in September ’19. Travel was well organised and the Hotel was a comfortable 4 star. Good food and a relaxing Jacuzzi after tennis. Lovely, small resort with good tennis facilities a short walk from hotel. Well targeted coaching sessions on different aspects of the game. Nice selection of bars and restaurants for the evening.
