Sports for your children – Golf or Tennis Academy?

Ability may get you to the top,

but it takes character to keep you there

– John Wooden


Being active is vital especially for kids to develop and grow into healthy adults. Learning how to play a sport gives them great life skills and aids their development, thinking and how they interact with others around them. What is difficult though is which sport to choose from!

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to children’s sport in Cyprus, with world class facilities right on our doorstep. We have a range of options to choose from including team sports such as football, basketball, watersports as well as individual sports like tennis, golf, horse riding.

The most important and popular children’s sports at Aphrodite Hills Resort are golf and tennis. Kids here have a great fun learning the skills and techniques.
