Life is not about the number of breaths you take,  it’s about the moments that take your breath away. Active Away Holidays began when we started listening carefully to our clients at David Lloyd. They told us what they, as active people, wanted from a tennis holiday – they wanted to take their passion for tennis, golf and health and fitness away with them to quality sporting destinations; play with like minded, passionate people and enhance their technique, their tactics and their circle of friends.
