In 1997, Aldemar introduced health and wellness vacations to Greece’s leisure and tourism industry by creating the country’s first thalassotherapy centre, the Royal Mare Thalasso, which has also been awarded as the world’s best. Ten years later, the Aldemar Group dynamically entered the athletic tourism sector by developing a modern Tennis Club at the Royal Mare Village***** on Crete. In compliance with all modern standards, the Centre features:
·7 brand new, international-standard clay tennis courts, equipped with all necessary infrastructure,
·Club House and tennis equipment store, and
·Professional trainers available to every visitor, who give tennis lessons based on each player’s level of practice and age.
Another great advantage of the Aldemar Tennis Club is its geographical location, which guarantees ideal weather conditions all year around, while at the same time it is the perfect place to play and practice, not only for professional players and teams, but also for visitors who just wish to enjoy their favourite sport.
