My wife and I may be moving to Abu Dhabi in a couple of months. We are both fairly avid tennis players. We know about the summer heat, and that most major hotels seem to have a few courts. But our question is this: Are there real tennis clubs in Abu Dhabi, i.e., with not only courts, but a tennis pro, clinics and lessons, club competitions, socializing, etc. Thanks.
Try the Abu Dhabi Health & Fitess club. My friend is a memeber there and it has an active tennis section. Coaching etc is available and the social side is good too as there are restaurants, gym, pool etc. It is currently undergoing a total refurbishment. Annual fees for couples are 5200dhs, but I am told that this will increase when the refurbishments are completed. The Beach Rotana club at the Rotana hotel also has tennis courts with coaching available. Current fees there are 9200dhs per couple. again this includes gym,pool,beach and restaurants. Hope this helps. Malcolm
