The luxury resort opens its doors to an enriching tennis experience with Coach Marcus Drien

Every day is an adventure at OZEN LIFE MAADHOO. And recently appointed resident tennis coach Marcus Drien takes the fun times a notch higher with bespoke sports experiences as well as an opportunity to enjoy exclusive tennis holidays in the Maldives. Marcus Drien is an ITF level 2 tennis professional. He has over 10 years of coaching experience having mentored players of all ages and tennis levels. Additionally, Marcus is a certified fitness coach with experience in improving physical skills including correct body mechanics and cardiovascular activities.

Marcus’s results-driven tennis lessons make for a truly uplifting experience and are a standing testament to his global repertoire. Along with technical and tactical improvements, he also focuses on physical development to ensure improvement both on and off the court.

OZEN LIFE MAADHOO features a stunning artificial grass tennis court at the southern end of the island. The court is floodlit, allowing for exciting games even under the stars.

Elevating this sports experience, is the resort’s partnership with RTC Sports (Recreational Tennis Coaching) who provide highly qualified and experienced tennis coaches on a rotation basis. Here, the focus is on continuous learning with lessons to build up the guest’s game, be it at a novice, intermediate or advanced skill level. Marcus will be at the resort for three months, following which there will be other professional coaches on rotation.
