The tennis coaches at Verdura Tennis Academy are highly trained professionals with a long-standing love of tennis.
Zoltan Vary, the head coach, is a former professional player on ATP Challenger tournaments, having played tennis since 1979 and coaching since 1997. He has worked in professional tennis academies and hotel resorts around Europe; one of his students went on to become four times national champion, Player of the Year in 2009, and ranked number 2 in the USA.
'The most important thing to know as a coach is: you have to teach the person as well as teaching the technique. As a coach, you need to find the right technique for each person, and this will be a huge success. I believe Sunball's partnership with Verdura is a way of guaranteeing a perfect service for guests. Verdura Golf & Spa Resort is an incredible place to spend a tennis holiday, one of the best in Europe.' Zoltan Vary, The Verdura Tennis Academy
