Tennis fans can look forward to a grand-slamming summer in Europe this year with a twist, thanks to the growing popularity of beach tennis – a sport that is taking the shores of Europe by storm.
The International Tennis Federation is hosting several highly-anticipated championships for beach tennis in places around Europe this summer, including those in such nations as Italy, Bulgaria, Portugal and Cyprus. Cheap flights to Cyprus are easy to book with Jet2.com and the beach tennis championships being held in Lanarca are sure to be a highlight of the trip for any tennis enthusiasts.
Beach tennis is a growing sport in Cyprus, with the Beach Tennis Club in Limassol providing the base for local enthusiasts of the sport. The club not only helps to organise professional beach tennis events; it also offers lessons and encourages participation.
Those who like a beach holiday but who still want to stay active, should look into booking cheap flights to Cyprus this summer. Sun, sea and sport is drawing in tourists from across Europe and 2013 looks set to be the biggest year yet for beach tennis. Gran Canaria also hosted a back-to-back beach tennis tournament earlier this year and the appetite for beach tennis is growing, with tournaments being held throughout Europe this summer.
More information on European beach tennis tournaments, participation and match tickets can be found on the official website of the International Tennis Federation, and cheap flights to top beach tennis destinations can be booked online as well.
