DERTOUR teams up with Base Tennis
Press release: 24 November 2010
The UK's number one holiday provider to Germany DERTOUR has
signed a new sponsorship deal with Base Tennis to act as its
exclusive official UK travel agency partner.
Established in 1961, DERTOUR prides itself on providing tailor-made holidays - from city breaks to large group tours - to Germany and the rest of Europe for business or pleasure.
A short 35-minute journey from Frankfurt Airport and close to the high-speed ICE train connection at Montabaur, Base Tennis is an innovative concept that offers junior tennis players a base in Europe for pre-competition "red clay" training.
Situated in the idyllic, leafy woodlands of the Pro-Sport Hotel in Ransbach-Baumbach, Base Tennis has seven outdoor clay courts and three indoor courts. The comfortable family-run hotel has a cardio gym and wellness centre, conference facilities and on-site tutors.
BASE Tennis' mission as a high performance centre is to create winners both on and off the court. It is committed to developing well-educated, accomplished and mature individuals who can take on all of life's challenges as well as opening doors to US universities and providing guidance for players who want to turn professional.
"We are delighted to be working together with such a gifted and successful team of young tennis players. Our hopes are really high for their chances in the future, we're all looking forward to following and supporting their progress over the next year", said DERTOUR Head of Marketing Tim Locke.
Set up by Rodney Rapson, who is also Director of Performance Tennis at Highgate C<C in London, BASE Tennis' programme is based on the Competitive Based Development (CBD) Model developed over the past 15 years by leading coach educator Peter McCraw, who has worked extensively with players such as Maria Sharapova, Jelena Jancovic, Nicole Vaidisova & Xavier Malisse during their development years.
