In the words of Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy!” And if former Tennis No.1 Annabel Croft is anything to go by, they also make you extremely nice and enviably fit.
At forty-five, Croft exudes health, fitness and glamour, with the kind of glossy dark hair, tanned skin and athletic physique that most Hollywood starlets can only dream of.
Having waxed lyrical about all that of course, she is not really known for her attractiveness … or her longstanding career as a television presenter … or her on-going charitable commitments. Nope, Croft is best known for her tennis career, soaring to fame when she won the Junior Wimbledon title in 1984.
Still fully committed to the game, and in particular to encouraging new talent, she founded the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy in 2009, combining twenty-five years of expertise in different coaching methods from all over the world with the firm belief that the best way to improve is to hit a lot of balls.
However, as a mum herself, Croft insists that tennis coaching should also be fun, and runs the academy through venues as committed to the game as she is, as well as providing beautiful environments to learn in, which will explain her latest partnership with InterContinental’s Aphrodite Hills Tennis Academy in Cyprus.
The world class facility has announced a partnership with the academy for 2012, and is the first of its kind in the favoured holiday destination.
Of course, Aphrodite Hills doesn’t just cater to the tennis stars of the future. It also boasts a luxurious spa on the coast. So while your child prodigy is honing his or her skills on the courts, you could be relaxing in the hydrotherapy complex looking out onto the Mediterranean coastline!
