Never get rained off the tennis court with Wimco International

LONDON, ENGLAND, JUNE 2004:With Wimbledon time here again, tennis is once again in season. For those not wishing to be rained off between sets or looking for slightly more exotic settings in which to play, Wimco, the villa specialist, may just have the answer. With a wide selection of villas throughout with their own tennis courts and, for those whose serve is a bit rusty, individual tennis lessons at approximately £75 per hour (to be paid in local currency), everything is provided for a perfect game, set and holiday.

The 5 bedroom, deluxe Sol y Sombra Villa in Virgin Gorda is ideal for tennis lovers – it even has a Tennis Suite, which is just across from private tennis courts and has its own air conditioned sitting room with day beds, a kitchenette and a shaded verandah, perfect for resting between matches. The rest of the villa is just as luxurious and can sleep up to ten people. There is also an infinity pool, and two kayaks for the sporty. Perfect for relaxing and doing nothing or working up a sweat on the tennis courts before taking a dip in the pool, Sol y Sombra offers a truly 5 star welcome for those seeking a holiday of a lifetime. From £5,917 per week including accommodation and maid service only.

If polo is as important to you as tennis, then Buttsbury Court in St James, Barbados is probably ideal. Situated on the corner of the Polo Field at Holders, the house overlooks the playing field and has its own Jacuzzi and swimming pool as well as tennis courts. It even offers a self-contained one bedroom cottage in the grounds, a seriously luxurious granny-annex. From £2,899 per week including accommodation and maid service only.

Looking for the simple life? Then head for Sunrise Villa in Mustique, which overlooks the aptly named Simplicity Bay is ideal. A lavish villa, with one main building containing two bedrooms surrounded by gardens, and two smaller, intimate beach villas, separated from the main house by island greenery and a secluded beach which contain the 3rd and 4th bedrooms. A 60ft swimming pool and all-weather Omnicourt tennis court offer guests all the activity they could want in one of Mustique’s most comfortable villas. From £2,367 per week including accommodation and maid service only.
