Tennis Pro Jaroslaw Grela set for exclusive residency at Vakkaru Maldives

Vakkaru Maldives will welcome top tennis professionals to the island this festive season. Now, in addition to spa visits and snorkeling excursions, guests can supplement their holiday experience with customized tennis coaching and clinic with the new resident coach Jaroslaw Grela during his exclusive residency at the private island sanctuary.

Tennis pro-Jaroslaw Grela brings his extensive experience as a player and a sparring partner to the resort as part of the Tipsarevic Luxury Tennis experience from 15 December 2021 to 15 March 2022. Founded by former World No. 8 tennis player Janko Tipsarevic, it brings some of the world’s most accomplished tennis professionals to Vakkaru for short-term residencies.

Certified as an instructor by two prestigious tennis associations, the International Tennis Federation and Professional Tennis Registry, Jarek has extensive experience coaching in different countries, including Poland, Mauritius, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenegro. Guests at Vakkaru will have the opportunity to attend tennis clinics and tutorials led by Jarek during his residency. In addition, those brave enough can go up against him in the “Beat the Pro” challenge at the resort’s iconic cobalt blue courts, recently resurfaced by the same company that built the courts at the Australian Open. Guests who beat Jarek at his game win a free court session, or pay the price of a one-hour tennis lesson if they lose.

Recently named the Indian Ocean Leading Resort in the 2021 World Travel Awards and Favourite Family Hotel (International category) in the Condé Nast Traveller Middle East Readers’ Choice Awards 2021, Vakkaru Maldives pairs luxurious accommodation with a multitude of facilities and experiences for the ultimate beach vacation.
