The start of Wimbledon has us reaching for our tennis rackets every year, and with the 2013 competition already in full swing, it seems fitting that we take a look at what great tennis holidays there are on offer. South West London isn’t the only place for great tennis this summer, and we have some exclusive offers this year that include private lessons with Pat Cash and tips on your backhand and serve from Annabel Croft and Andrew Castle!
