As Annabel Croft says:
“I fell in love with tennis on a family holiday to Spain and have spent over 35 years working in this wonderful sport since then. Supporting this tournament which offers youngsters the chance to experience the heat of competition whilst staying active and fit during the summer holidays seemed a perfect fit for Annabel Croft Tennis Holidays. We’re delighted to be working with the Club to inspire the next generation of British tennis players.”
