Al Bustan Palace InterContinental Muscat is offering professional tennis coaching lessons through the Peter Burwash International (PBI) tennis management from now until May 2010.
The tennis lessons will be available for hotel guests as well as members of the hotel’s health club and will include a wide range of tennis coaching techniques suitable for beginners and more advanced players. The lessons can be booked privately or as part of a group.
“Tennis is a fantastic sport and we wanted to make sure our guests and members make the most of our brand new tennis facilities following the renovation,” said Martin van Kan, Director of Operations for IHG Oman and General Manager of Al Bustan Palace InterContinental Muscat. “PBI is world-renowned for tennis coaching and we are only offering the best. I encourage all our guests to give it a try – I will certainly play a set or two.”
Named after Peter Burwash, a two-time Davis Cup winner and Canadian no. 1, PBI is the leading tennis management company, specializing in tennis instruction, program development and daily activities for five-star resorts, hotels and clubs worldwide based on Burwash’s teaching philosophy.
