How Wimbledon Inspires Me
If, like me, the thrill of Wimbledon has inspired you to pick up your racket once again then let me share with you one of my favourite places to play:
Paradis Hotel & Golf Club, Mauritius
This beautiful resort reopened its doors last year after undergoing some very stylish renovations. Here you can choose to practise your volleys in brilliant sunshine, or if you prefer to stay cool, the floodlit tennis courts are perfect for an evening mixed doubles match.
Do you have a mini-Murray or Watson-in-waiting?
If your children love to play then the hotel offers fantastic coaching facilities, perfect for keeping their skills sharp or just for fun if they are more recreational players. If you’re struggling to keep up with your children’s serve, they also offer coaching for grown-ups – great for your game (and for making sure you go home with beautifully toned arms).
What to wear
Even the most sartorially elegant individuals occasionally forget to pack the right clothes (as Lewis Hamilton discovered to his great cost last year), this is why our pre-departure pack comes complete with a list of what to wear when you’re on the island. And if in your hurry to pack, you find you’ve forgotten a crucial item of clothing or equipment, our 24 hour concierge service will make sure you don’t get left out, just because you’ve left something behind.
