With more and more leisure activities available at luxury resorts, families now have a wealth of opportunities to enjoy a range of sports during the summer months in a more tailored environment and with professional coaching, including boxing, cricket, swimming and racquet sports.

Budding young football stars will be delighted to learn that there are a number of soccer schools available, particularly in European resorts, which are run by professional football academies – including some that are affiliated to top Premier League football clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, while golf and tennis are extremely popular pursuits for all ages and there are a huge number of resorts in Europe and the Caribbean that cater for all levels of ability.
