A word from the Director and founder - Steve Riley LTA Level 5 coach BSc Phy Ed
I first came to the UAE as graduate in 1983- and was thrown in the responsibility deepend at the Al Ain Hilton and Dubai Sheraton
After 2 years in the UAE I returned to the UK to develop tennis the hard way by building public tennis centres in London - we now have 23 centres- 123 courts and 75 coaches with an additional 70 employed staff. Finally i can now realise one of my dreams of coming back to the UAE to enjoy the culture, weather and outdoor life, and at the same time develop tennis here.
I have been to RAK before and won the RAK TENNIS Open many years ago IN 1985 - the same year I won the Dubai Open!!!
I am delighted to be back in this unique environment and great country - and help others benefit from sport and tennis
