'It would be very remiss of me to not write to you to offer my praise and commendation for Josh Thompson in hosting the trip. The growth in confidence, organisation and care for the group shown by Josh was exemplary. You can be justifiably proud of a great member of your team and I have no doubt that he will only grow in stature over the years ahead.’

Jim Daintith, Group Chairman at IAPS group


I have almost no experience of tennis coaching, but I thought it was excellent. People way better than me also thought it was good, so I think the coaches must be skilled at delivering the right level and approach for different people. Josh was really inspirational for me.

Josh was always there and smiling!! Top class organisation. He was always there to contact if we had a problem Active Away Holidays are a great way to improve your tennis, with attentive and superbly qualified coaches who know the game inside out, and more importantly are able to break the game down into workable sections for you to practice for yourself. Then in the evening there is a chance to put into practice what you have learned. Another great aspect of the holiday is meeting like-minded people from all over the country!
