Meet the Team
Annabel Croft Tennis (ACT) was founded in January 2009 by the former British No.1 and Tennis TV Presenter Annabel Croft and her husband Mel Coleman.
The academies HQ is in Roehampton, London and based at the National Tennis Centre (NTC). This venue is where the academy was founded with a start up after school programme with only a handful of children. Now in its 10th year of operations, the academy has over 320 active players in its programme and delivers over 100 group classes each week.
In January 2012, ACT opened up its first overseas tennis coaching destination with the launch of our academy at Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus. Taking on the role of tennis operator, ACT became the UK’s only overseas tennis operator and delivered its own brand of tennis coaching to the tennis holiday market.
In September 2013, ACT opened its 2nd overseas venue at the prestigious Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve. Featuring the same coaching timetable as Aphrodite Hills and offering the same ACT philosophy to all its players, this destination has further cemented ACT position in the tennis holidays market. Currently ACT Operate at two European Luxury resorts; Pine Cliffs in Portugal and the Abama in Tenerife.
Annabel Croft Holidays was developed as a supporting company to the original tennis business in January 2012 and offers a supporting service to all of our players looking to take tennis holidays to any of our resorts. We have now developed this business further to offer a wider range of Holidays (non Tennis) with an active theme.
