Running an ITF Tournament


In Antalya off peak all inclusive rates can be as reasonable as £70 per night all inclusive. Often its cheaper for players to book independently than go through ITF organiser rates. Antalya will run back to back ITF often with juniors too. Courts are on two sites and will provide regular mini bus transfers. As well as tennis they will host football academy events etc so the hotel whilst not all open will have quite a good capacity for the off peak seasons.

Maybe diversification is the answer eg La Manga run loads of courses, academies for all ages, also Paddle and even Pickle ball

Thanks.† I am very familiar with La Manga and the cricket club that I am involved with plays there.† The 'tennis' idea at this new resort is just one of many. Football pitches, basketball courts, volleyball courts and - if all goes to plan - two brand new cricket pitches as well. Just want them to add even more options.

Marcus told me that Full Board rates were 70-90 euros if booked through the ITF. As an agent for the new resort, I can get better rates than that but at the moment it is a bit 'hostal' rather than hotel. But they will hopefully change over the next year or two.

Do you know if they happen to charge for the minibus transfer, as they do at Faro in Portugal ?

Got my eye on a couple of gaping holes in the Spanish programme, both early in the year.

On the women's side, they don't start in Spain until mid Feb when they do a 3 week slot in Manacor (which is just across the water from us) on hard court. So a three week slot from Mid Jan to early Feb would fit.

As for the men, they start in Manacor (again on Hard) in January until the beginning for Feb but then have a 4 week hole until the end of the month before heading to Torello, also on Hard

So I am looking at hard court tournaments (as per this year's calendar)

Women: Weeks 3/4/5
Men: Weeks 6/7/8

No idea if I can convince these people to go for it and they will undoubtedly ask for more information.

Next month there are 3 Spanish futures within reach for me - Denia, Gandia, Xavia (I have seen Billy play there before) so might take a trip on up and see if I can pick the brains of the organiser about the level of support from the Spanish federation.

The chances of all this happening are slim in my opinion, but we're allowed to dream, aren't we.
