Fancy a game with Venus Williams?

Is there a Centre Court shaped hole in your life? A silence ringing through your ears that was once filled with the entertaining anecdotes of McEnroe? Are your hands not quite sure what to do with themselves now there’s a distinct drought on Pimms & Champagne? If, like us, you are grieving the end of Wimbledon then read on to find out how we can provide you with the perfect ‘pick-me-up’…

Wimbledon may be over but the tennis season is by no means out. We are looking ahead to US Open at the end of August and already having heated discussions in the office as to who will be the victor this year. We’re split. Will it be a second Grand Slam win under the belt for the Wimbledon Champion, Novak Djokovic? Or can the US Open defending champion, Raphael Nadal, bounce back from his Wimbledon defeat and prove that he really is the best of the best? 

But how about the Women’s draw? Wimbledon this year proved that the women’s tour is becoming bigger and better with a whole host of players displaying the drive and ability to make it to the very top. The younger generation that are ascending through the ranks are certainly a force to contend with and making it a very open contest. We hope defending US Open Champion Serena Williams will be back to winning from this year to put yet more cats amongst the pigeons. 

And in celebration of the winning formula that are the Williams sisters,  the established leading luxury hotel in Barbados, Sandy Lane have announced that one half of this dynamic duo, Venus Williams, will be in situ at the hotel for a one off exclusive tennis clinic at the beginning of November. This incredible opportunity would see you playing and mingling with the crème de la crème of women’s tennis at the cream of the crop of Caribbean hotels. The offer includes a 4 night stay in a luxury Ocean room, 2 sessions with Venus on Saturday 1st November & Sunday 2nd November, including an invitation to a cocktail party in the evening on the Sunday with the star herself. And further still a spa voucher per person – the ideal accompaniment to ease those potentially aching arm muscles – after all, Venus isn’t exactly known for her forgiving ground strokes!

To find out more about this exciting offer and for one our Specialist Travel Consultants to provide you with your tailor-made quote, please do get in contact with us. The offer is limited and only applicable to this one weekend, so book early to avoid disapointing. As we can’t promise we won’t be trying to snap it up ourselves…can you really blame us; it’s not every day you get offered the chance to mingle with such a sporting icon. Rackets at the ready...
