Open all year, with a great coaching programme is a perfect place for all family. 14 tennis courts, 1 padel court, gym, swimming pool, pro-shop and tennis café. Everything in a relaxing athmosphere.

A shining example of why captive markets don't work. The tennis facilities at Vale do Lobo may well be adequate (although, it has to be said, pretty poor value), but the customer service (with the honourable exception of Carla on Reception) is so patronising &...More

The academy was great to spend our tennis week, great food, very flexible, fantastic pool, and changing areas. They made me feel very at home at comfortable. Would love to go back.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I would like to know how much it is to book a court, do I need to sign in as a member as we are visiting for a holiday and would like to go for occasional games and use the facilities, eg pool and bar. How does it work?

Hi! We're visiting V do L at the end of Aug for 10 days, hoping to play lots of tennis - just wondering best way to do this... Have reduced rates from the agents we've had our villa from - standard bronze pack (10 hrs group coaching, BBQ, etc but no tournament entry or pool use) is €200 adults, €165 children. Higher priced packages include the tournaments and pool. In your experience, is this the best bet? Should we book ahead? Or safe to sort when we get there? Also, I'd understood that pool use is €5 redeemable against food, but the price list I now have says it's €17! Advice please!
