Ljubicic Tennis Academy looking to sprinkle Croatian magic (clay) dust over your tennis holiday
Nestled in the small but perfectly formed Adriatic island of Lošinj, Ivan Ljubicic has created a stunning tennis holiday location that offers a blend of high quality coaching mixed with the best of that legendary Croatian hospitality.
Ivan Ljubicic reached No.3 in the world at a time when Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer were the top two, so he knows what it means to commit yourself to your passion and to squeeze the best out of everything you do. And it’s this commitment which seems to have translated into his Ljubicic Tennis Academy in Croatia.
Tennis holidays are becoming more and more popular, no doubt linked to the huge rise in tennis participation since the COVID pandemic that encouraged us all to play outdoor sports. Family tennis holidays work so well because players of different standards from the same family can learn to play in groups of their own level for a few hours each day before rejoining their loved ones to enjoy any delights offered off the tennis court.
According to Ljubicic, “the island of Losinj is a true hidden gem of the Mediterranean sea. It’s a place with a rich history, fascinating scenery and a turqoise sea. With more than 260 sunny days per year, it is perfect for an active lifestyle and devotion to sports. Due to specific climate conditions and supreme air quality, Lošinj was recognized as health tourism destination 130 years ago.”
The tennis academy itself is situated just a stones throw away from a range of high quality accommodation to suit all budgets thanks to a partnership with Lošinj Hotels & Villas who operate hotels, luxury villas and apartments located at the most attractive locations of the island.
Ljubicic has said of this project, “For me, this is the last piece of puzzle that was missing on my tennis path. I was thinking about this step for some time and when me and my team started talking I soon realized that this place is perfect for what we want to create. With all the experience I have in tennis, I knew the place is going to be as strong as the team is. I wanted to get the best possible people to work in the academy and to share knowledge and experience with players.”
But not all tennis holidaymakers want to be grinding it on the courts for 8 hours a day which is why the Ljubicic experience very clearly states that they can offer plenty for those that want a more relaxed trip and a chance to sample the delights of this island,
“Whether you like to treat yourself with a luxury Spa experience followed by a dinner in a Michelin star restaurant and a good night sleep in a luxury 5 star hotel or you just want to soak the sun in a hidden bay, Lošinj is the place for you. You can spend your nights in a camp or in a super-luxury villa, and everywhere in-between. You can enjoy time in outdoor or indoor pools, workout in a gym with a breathtaking sea view or hike the Osorcica mountain.”
