VIRGIN GORDA, BVI — Rosewood Little Dix Bay, the timeless Caribbean resort located on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, is pleased to announce the third annual Legends Camp, in partnership with Ice Swan, from November 18-22, 2014. Hosted in conjunction with Premier Tennis, the five-day program will take place at Rosewood Little Dix Bay’s state-of-the-art tennis facilities in its golden anniversary year, amidst the Necker Cup, the world’s most exclusive Pro-Am tennis event.

Perfect for tennis aficionados, the package includes three days of twice-daily, on-court instruction and competitive match play with world-renowned coaches and pros, courtside seats to the ATP/WTA Tennis Charity Exhibition, and an exclusive invitation to attend Sir Richard Branson’s glamorous “End of the World” charity event on Necker Island, all while enjoying the luxury and splendid surroundings of Rosewood Little Dix Bay. For the first time in the program’s history, Rosewood Little Dix Bay is offering young children of resort guests the opportunity to participate in select clinics, ensuring all members of the family get their own time on the court.

“The combination of our award-winning tennis program and picturesque location makes Rosewood Little Dix Bay one of the top destinations in the world for tennis enthusiasts,” said Ed Linsley, managing director of Rosewood Little Dix Bay. “After enhancing our top-of-the-line tennis facilities as part of the resort’s plans to commemorate its 50th Anniversary, we are delighted to welcome back Premier Tennis for the 2014 Legends Camp and look forward to continuing our wonderful partnership.”

Whether a beginner or pro, the one-of-a-kind luxury sporting experience offers guests of all tennis levels the opportunity to perfect their serves and backhands amidst the breathtaking beauty of Virgin Gorda. For the 2014 program, Premier Tennis welcomes back celebrated coaches Wayne Bryan, father and former coach of the World #1 Doubles Champions Mike and Bob Bryan, Murphy Jensen, former French Open Doubles Champion, and special guest Brad Gilbert—former coach of Andy Murray and world #1s Andy Roddick and Andre Agassi—who, along with other ATP/WTA professionals, will provide participants with personalized instruction, friendly competition and exclusive insight into the game of professional tennis.

Guests will also have ample opportunities to explore Virgin Gorda’s lush surroundings with scuba diving excursions, yacht charters or the resort’s famed beach drops, where they can kayak, sail and snorkel around the island’s unspoiled beaches. For those looking to unwind out of the sun, the cliff-side Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Rosewood Little Dix Bay provides a stunning backdrop for rejuvenating treatments like the Seaside Sedation Massage.

The four-night experience culminates on the evening of November 21 with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to cheer on Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker, Kim Cljisters, Martina Hingis and last year’s Wimbledon winner Marion Bartoli, among other top tennis stars, from spectacular courtside seats at the Necker Cup Tennis Charity Exhibition on Necker Island.
