I've just returned from a few days stay at the Mount Nelson. This is the second time I have stayed at the hotel. And each time have enjoyed my stay, however the real gem of the trip this time was playing tennis at the hotel. A friend of mine had enjoyed lessons there on our first trip over, so on the second I thought I would make the most of it. What started out as one lesson, ended up in me playing everyday I was there, it was so good. Barkie the coach is a pro tennis coach and I was a little intimidated by this, I hadn't played tennis for 10 years, but it couldn't have been better. I felt totally comfortable and learnt so much as a result of this. Buy the end of four lessons I had a forehand, backhand and a serve. I'm delighted as this is something I have really been able to take away with me. Equally I know that friends who are very accomplished tennis players always enjoy playing there too. So, if you can tear yourself away from the pool, spa or afternoon tea - go and book yourself a lesson. And it's much more enjoyable that the gym!
