Comments:  We had a wonderful time in Tuscany last year. Please could you send us your hosted dates for this year? It’s January and snowing outside, and the lure of a week’s tennis in beautiful Lucca, and enjoying the superb local food in the evenings with your other guests, is just too tempting

Comments:  We have enjoyed many hosted weeks with Ian and Laura, but our stay in Trapani was one of the most memorable: it brings together the best of all destinations, with beach, art, history, fabulous food and wine (not forgetting the tennis, of course). The accommodation in town was convenient and stylish, with a beautiful view from the roof bar. An unforgettable experience and one we hope to repeat!

Comments:  Our first time with TTH in Trapani, Sicily, and what a great experience. The coaching is first class as are the hosts Ian and Laura. Their local knowledge is so useful and nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend them enough, and we have just booked for our second experience

Comments:  Ian and Laura are just the best at this. The tennis is a perfect ice breaker whatever your standard, which very quickly makes for a great social atmosphere, and you can’t help but make new friends on a Tuscan Tennis Holiday.

Comments:  Wow! What an amazing place Sardinia is- more beautiful than the Caribbean and so much closer! I'm almost at the end of a fantastic week (sob) so a huge thank you to Ian and Laura for such a well organised holiday: excellent coaching, an amazing boat trip that I will remember for ever, meals out to really excellent restaurants and, well, loads of fun! Now I just have to decide whether to come back to Sardinia next year or shall I try Sicily...............
