Rosewood Bermuda is partnering with Cliff Drysdale Tennis to launch a comprehensive programme at their facility after a $25 million renovation.

Cliff Drysdale Tennis is one of the world’s most esteemed tennis management companies and through the partnership will elevate the hotel’s tennis programme to an internationally recognised level, with local player Ashley Brooks serving as the club professional.

“The resort’s comprehensive renovation was an opportunity for us to enhance every aspect of the resort experience, and we are excited to be partnering with an internationally renowned management company at the forefront of tennis to transform the tennis experience at Rosewood Bermuda,” said Paul Telford, the managing director of Rosewood Bermuda in Tucker’s Point.

“As the first partnership of its kind on Bermuda, this will not only enhance the tennis experience at Rosewood Bermuda but will also elevate Bermuda as a larger tennis destination.”

Cliff Drysdale Tennis will manage Rosewood Bermuda’s tennis facilities and oversee the resort’s programme.

Experienced members and tennis-loving guests will be able to enjoy the adult and junior programmes, which include private and semi-private lessons, day camps, social events and tennis leagues.

“Our partnership with Rosewood Bermuda is exciting on many fronts,” said Scott Colebourne, the vice-president of operations for Cliff Drysdale Tennis.

“The great facilities and incredible location will allow for the ultimate tennis experience for both local players and resort guests. We’re ready to make Bermuda a premier tennis destination.

“In addition to the playing benefits, we see great opportunities for Bermudian junior players to travel to Cliff Drysdale programmes in the US on scholarships, as well as increased tennis professional training and employment opportunities.”

The resort’s new programme will be headed by Yana Orlova, the newly appointed director of tennis. An accomplished player who has competed professionally on the ITF Pro Circuit, Orlova brings a wealth of playing, coaching and management experience to the resort.

In her role as tennis professional, Brooks will facilitate lessons, day camps and clinics. She previously worked at Rosewood Bermuda as a guest professional before joining the team in a full-time capacity. The partnership will be the first of its kind in Bermuda.

Drysdale is a former top-ranked professional player who was elected into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2013.
