The Launch of Tipsarevic Luxury Tennis at Vakkaru Maldives brings the Best Players

The Maldives has never been associated with world-class tennis, until now. In the idyllic Baa Atoll, Vakkaru Maldives’ partnership with Tipsarevic Luxury Tennis was launched on the resort’s cobalt-blue courts on November 16; it will saw some of the world’s top players lead tennis clinics and tutorials exclusively for guests of the luxury resort.

Indicative of the calibre of the player set to appear at Tipsarevic Luxury Tennis (TLT) sessions at Vakkaru Maldives in future, the inaugural TLT training programme ran until November 21 and featured residencies from former world No.1 Angelique Kerber, former World No. 5 Rainer Schuettler, and TLT founder Janko Tipsarevic, himself a former world No. 8. These short-term residencies give exclusive opportunities for guests to have one-to-one sessions with the tennis pros while staying at Vakkaru Maldives.

Speaking about the resort’s collaboration with Tipsarevic Luxury Tennis, Iain McCormack, general manager, Vakkaru Maldives, said, “We are honoured to welcome some of the world’s best tennis players to our private-island home and know that our guests will relish the chance to play against such esteemed athletes. With our overwater spa and gym, the beauty of Baa Atoll and all of our world-class amenities at their full disposal, opportunities for post-match relaxation and recovery are also plentiful. There is simply nowhere else to play world-class tennis quite like this.”
