Default Tennis Coach

Hi, I was hoping someone may be able to help me please? I have been searching through previous posts to find information about tennis coaching in PP. I did find one mention of a coach a few years ago but I cannot find specific details.

I am coming out to PP in July for 7 weeks with my 3 children. My two older boys have been taking tennis lessons for a couple of years and I am keen to keep them busy when we are away! Does anyone know of a tennis coach in PP who would be willing to do weekly lessons over the summer? Our apartment is very close to the sports centre.

Many thanks

Jilly

Talking to Rafael in Laguna last week - he coaches at the Illa D'or tennis court. When he ran the Bonanca Bar (now Laguna) many is the time we watched him coach poor victims on the adjacent court. His coaching style takes no prisoners. His barked instructions could be heard at the end of the street! Seems to know what he is doing though.
But how has he the stamina to tennis coach during the day, then run (very actively) a bar till 4 or 5 in the morning??
Agree he is a really really nice person!

Rafa is back again at Illa Dor Hotel this year as my aching limbs will testify! Anyone wanting to improve their game should try a lesson or two.
