Male’, Maldives, 20th September 2022 – The inspirational young tennis star, Emma Raducanu is all set to visit Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences. As she continues to inspire a new generation of tennis fans, Emma Raducanu will be making a pitstop at Amilla Maldives Resort to share her skills with guests.
Due to unforeseen personal circumstances, world number four, Daniil Medvedev, has had to postpone his previously planned trip to Amilla to lead a tennis clinic. The team at Amilla Maldives wishes Daniil the best for the end of the season, and their thanks to Emma for agreeing to lead the celebrity tennis event.
The British tennis player will be visiting Amilla Maldives Resort in Baa Atoll, Maldives, from October 25th until November 1st. During Emma’s time on the private island resort, she will treat lucky guests to a 60-minute tennis clinic at the resort’s tennis court. The court, set in the jungle in the heart of the island, was recently refurbished to US Open standards.
Emma’s visit will coincide with Amilla’s Festival of Life continuing through October and November. Her masterclass for guests is being organised in conjunction with LUX Tennis, the operator of Amilla’s tennis activities. As a huge supporter of the sport, Amilla Maldives regularly hosts tennis pros throughout the year and even has a regular ‘resident pro’ on hand to coach resort guests.
Recently, Amilla Maldives Resort announced plans to extend the intention to play on the island to guests with disabilities too, as part of its certification as the world’s first Inclucare-certified resort. Wheelchair tennis star, Cisco Garcia, will visit Amilla Maldives at the end of September with his special tennis wheelchair.
