Put your faith in Club Med's G.O®s: famous for their expertise and experience, they'll help you choose the right equipment and improve your technique.
At Club Med, you can bring your own gear or rent top quality equipment when you arrive. Christian Hilaire (Club Med Resort's Sports Expert) explains: "We only offer the best equipment as we know our G.M®'s prefer to use brands that are famous for their premium quality and expertise. For example, we've teamed up with Hobie Cat for their catamarans and Babolat for their tennis rackets."
The Sports Expert goes on to explain the importance of providing adequate facilities and equipment: "With fleets ranging from 15 to 20 boats and courts accommodating 50 to 80 players, our guests can rest assured that top quality equipment is always available, regardless of the Resort."
Discover all land sports at Club Med
"A good tennis or golf player will always want to improve their skills," continues Christian Hilaire. Club Med offers group beginner/refresher courses as part of certain packages. You can also book one-on-one lessons for an extra cost.
If you want to perfect your serve, opt for a resort with tennis courts such as the Cancun Yucatan and Marrakech La Palmeraie Resorts. The tennis academy at the Club Med Sandpiper Bay Resort is run by an ATP professional.
For golf fans, Christian Hilaire recommends the Resorts of Opio in Provence (France), Da Balaia (Portugal), Bintan (Indonesia), and Agadir (Morocco).
For horseriding,* choose the Vittel or La Palmyre Resort. Take a calm and quiet ride or gallop at a good pace, the choice is yours.
Skiers and winter sports fans will love the Resorts in the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps, as well as those in China, Japan, and Canada.
And there are plenty of other Resorts with land sports facilities if none of the above fit the bill. Hit the heights with a summer climb up lush mountains in Asia or Europe. Stray from the beaten path while mountain biking. Explore natural landscapes and get some fresh air on a hike.
If you're looking for something more acrobatic, Club Med CREACTIVE by Cirque du Soleil will provide all the thrills you need. Circus activities take center stage at Club Med Punta Cana and Opio: enter the ring under the watchful eye of our G.C® (Gentils Circassiens) team, all of whom have trained with Cirque du Soleil. Up your adrenalin on a flying trapeze, practice somersaults on a trampoline, experience the fluidity of aerial acrobatics, strap on your harness and join a bungee class...have a ball with the entire family.
Discover all water sports at Club Med
Over a dozen Club Med Resorts offer water sports in exotic locations. For sailing, Club Med's Sports Expert Christian Hilaire recommends La Palmyre Atlantique in France and Djerba La Douce in Tunisia. Both resorts have beautiful stretches of water and steady winds.
Scuba dive* in the crystal clear Caribbean waters of the Bahamas and Martinique. Book a stay at the Club Med Kani or Les Villas de Finolhu Resort and set off in search of stingrays, turtles, and barracudas in Nassimo Thila in the Maldives. Are you a thrill-seeker?
