Umag Tennis Academy
Umag Tennis Academy has long history, well organised present and unquestionable future. That would be the Umag Tennis Academy in just a few words, that is, a short summary of the tennis played at the Resort Katoro, home to one of the most beautiful tennis academies in Europe.
This tennis wonderland, in the midst of an amazing surrounding, right next to the seaside, has been a Croatian and European tennis must-go to destination for several decades. Children’s tournaments, in which all the great Croatian as well as European or world-known tennis players took part, numerous tournaments for different age groups and categories that are being held nowadays, and the infrastructure offering first-class conditions for all tennis players, regardless of their age, make Katoro a destination you can hardly imagine without all this tennis-related splendour.

Alongside the coaches and managers, who are the initiators of success here at the Umag Tennis Academy, the Academy’s infrastructure is something we are particularly proud of. As many as 25 clay courts, 4 of which are indoor courts – 2 in a hall and 2 in a tent, 8 illuminated courts and 1 hard court guarantee perfect conditions for the improvement of your tennis skills. Whether you are just a beginner, a recreational player looking to learn something or have fun, a talented youngster in need of expert help to learn the technical and tactical aspects of playing tennis or a professional looking for a serene oasis to train in, Umag Tennis Academy will provide with nothing but the best.
In addition to the aforementioned tennis courts, the Academy’s facilities also include the following two buildings – Tennis Centre House and Academy House. Tennis Centre House is the Academy’s centre consisting of the following: a reception desk, an information desk, a gym, locker rooms and saunas, massage rooms, rooms for diagnostics, a tennis store, a restaurant and a bar. Therefore, all additional amenities you might need to make your enjoyment in tennis complete are located in this main building. In addition to training out on the court, which is the main prerequisite to step up your tennis game, this part of the Academy also offers the possibility to work on your physical fitness but also to go through the highly important recuperation and prevention exercises after having trained hard. Academy House is the place to rest and enjoy a lecture or two. It has a TV and a projector, a Playstation console, table tennis equipment etc. It is a venue for lectures on the tactical aspect of tennis which is particularly important to deal with all the challenges a player might face on his way up.
