Thank you so much for arranging our amazing family holiday. In this digital age, it is so easy to get lost in search after search when looking for that exclusive family holiday. Luckily I know Zuhal and Yusuf from Polats Sports Organisations and they were able to take the stress out of planning and booking. With Zuhal\'s experience and knowledge in the travel industry and tourism in Turkey, she was able to book a bespoke holiday for us.
PSO organised everything from flights to transfers and were able to recommend local trips and activities with great confidence based on their personal experience and local connections.
I will be travelling with PSO again and recommend this personal travel-assistant service which goes that extra mile.
One of my best holidays! Being one of the older participants, I was initially uncertain about my tennis holiday organised by Polats Sports. However they ensured that everyone had a great time whatever ability or age. They were never far away as we enjoyed one of the best holidays possible and nothing seemed too much trouble. We soon regarded them as friends which certainly proves my case and I would have no hesitation in using them again.
Zuhal and Yusuf organised an unforgettable Tennis trip to Turkey for myself and a large group of friends. The hotel was perfect for our trip - by the sea and beach, with great rooms, well-kept courts and so much good food and wine! They were the most charming and capable hosts imaginable, running everything seamlessly and always with good grace and smiles. I am already looking forward to my next holiday with this lovely couple.
I had the pleasure of staying at the Ali Bey Resort in Antalya last October for a tennis holiday with a group of friends. The trip was organised by Yusuf and Zuhal who did the most incredible job. They both worked tirelessly before, during, and after the trip to ensure we all had the best possible experience.
From booking our transfers, accommodation, tennis tournaments, excursions and meals, nothing was too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend Yusuf and Zuhal, they are the most warm and lovely people and clearly very passionate about their business. I look forward to my next trip with them in October 2019!
As a non-tennis playing partner attending a tennis focused holiday, I was a little apprehensive about finding enough to occupy myself, however, I needn\'t have worried. the resort itself is fantastic and has more than enough to occupy anyone; from an extensive schedule of fitness and wellness classes (the morning outdoor yoga and pilates were particularly fun) if that\'s your thing, to an adult only quiet pool if you prefer to sit in the sun and read your book while someone brings you hourly coffees.
Our hosts Zuhal and Yusuf were amazing, they were a wealth of information about the area and what there was to do. They couldn\'t do enough to help and could always be relied upon to help organise any madcap expedition I had in mind. All in all, it was the perfect holiday for a couple where one partner is tennis mad. Upon returning home, we immediately booked up for next year.
Thanks Zuhal and Yusuf, see you again in October.
As a new and inexperienced tennis player I was a bit apprehensive about joining the tennis holiday arranged by Zuhal and Yusuf at the Ali Bey last October. But I needn’t have worried. The tennis facilities at the Ali Bey are fantastic. But more importantly, Zuhal and Yusuf are such lovely people I felt at ease from the beginning.
They also have excellent organisational skills, arranging a programme of twice daily tennis sessions and a competitive tournament at the end of the week. I was matched with players at a similar level, so that we all got a good game and I didn’t feel out of my depth. Equally, there was flexibility in the programme to spend time away from tennis if you wished.
I cannot fault this holiday - it far exceeded my expectations and I will be returning this year.
I have recently returned from the most fantastic tennis holiday at Ali Bey Club Manavgat in Turkey.
I was part of a large group made up of mainly players from my local tennis club. We booked our trip through PSO and are so fortunate to have chosen them to host our holiday. Yusuf and Zuhal of PSO arranged our holiday and took care of every last detail on our behalf.
The Ali Bey Club was everything we had hoped for and more!
The food, outstanding and plentiful.
The tennis facilities are simply huge and out of this world!
And on the top of this there is also a significant waterpark on site to help wind down after a tough session.
I was joined on our trip by my father in law who is a non-tennis player and he was equally as impressed with his time away. There is ample to do for any non-playing friends and family and would recommend any one hesitating whether or not to go as tennis is not their thing, to just go as you will not be disappointed.
Needless to say I have already booked up for next year trip and have decided to squeeze in a bit of golf also which of course PSO have arranged on my behalf.
Thank you Yusuf and Zuhal, see you on the next tirp!
I was recently very fortunate to be part of a tennis group who travelled to Turkey organised by Zuhal and Yusuf. To say that the holiday was a success would be a major understatement.
The destination was a superb choice with fantastic facilities, courts and accommodation.
The food was delicious and plentiful and served in a relaxing setting overlooking the pristine Mediterranean Sea. Zuhal and Yusuf were the most attentive hosts imaginable. Every request was dealt with in the most helpful manner and without any problem.
We all benefited greatly from their local knowledge of the area and their personal connection with the hotel. They are truly lovely couple who have a true gift for hospitality.
This was my first time going on a tennis holiday and I absolutely loved it! Our hosts, Zuhal and Yusuf were absolutely tremendous. They worked so incredibly hard to look after us and ensure we had a great week and were always on hand to help with any problems.
The resort itself is situated right on the beach with an easy walk to the tennis courts. There is also plenty to do if you don’t want to spend every minute on court. The food buffet was always fresh and tasty with a large variety of options. Our upgraded room was clean, pleasant and spacious.
Overall a fun and successful week and I have already booked to go again next year!
I have recently returned from my second Turkish tennis holiday with Polats Sport Organisations. Hosted once again by Zuhal and Yusuf at the same resort, the Ali Bey Club in Manavgat. I had wondered if it would be as good the second time around... it most certainly was!
The resort is very high quality - beautiful rooms, very well maintained gardens and spotlessly clean public areas; along with excellent and varied food at a choice of restaurants.
The tennis courts are very accessible and now have their own restaurant serving drinks and lunch.
Zuhal and Yusuf pride themselves on really looking after their guests, responding to any requests. They work very hard to ensure that everyone plays as much tennis as they’d like, ensuring a balance between social and more competitive matches.
Attention to detail is obvious down to the group T-shirts and towels, a tournament prize-giving and professional photography.
Thank you for another great holiday - a perfect combination of tennis and relaxation in the company of a group of friends!
In October this year Zuhal and Yusuf Polat made arrangements for a repeat visit to the Ali Bey Hotel in Turkey for the tennis members of David Lloyd Farnham, last year’s trip having been a resounding success.
About 40 members attended of which I was one of only two non-playing husbands. The arrangements were proceeding very smoothly until Thomas Cook Airlines, on which many of us were booked, suddenly ceased trading with the result that much of the planning up to that point was thrown into confusion. Notwithstanding that, Zuhal remained extremely calm and assisted several of the members with the re-booking of their flights with the result that we all made it on time to the Ali Bey Hotel. I feel that without Zuhal’s input several of us might have abandoned the trip.
I should point out at this stage that I am not a tennis player but my wife is and I wanted to go to Turkey to support her - I also knew personally most of the other members of the party so there was plenty of camaraderie. While the others played tennis during the day I was able to enjoy the many facilities of the hotel, including its bars, restaurants and pools, and I found the staff very pleasant and helpful. During the holiday many of our party seemed to have constant queries which needed attending to and with Zuhal on hand it was like having our personal tour manager with us - nothing was too much trouble for her. In the evenings Yusuf reserved for us a table which seated up to thirty or more every evening at the Beach restaurant and the service there was also exemplary.
All in all, everyone had a great time and Zuhal and Yusuf made it all the better for being there with us.
We booked our annual tennis holiday with Polats Sports. The level of service and professional care gets better each time. Fantastic location, fantastic service, wonderful hotel and food. See you again in October!!
