The Aphrodite Hills Resort in an effort to show its love and support for all stray animals has teamed up with the Paphiakos & CCP Animal Welfare in order to rescue all the abandoned cats and dogs found around the Resort area.

The Resort’s Security team has always passed on these animals to the shelter to protect them and find them a new home. On top of that a few days ago, Aphrodite Hills Resort donated the generous amount of €1000 to Paphiakos & CCP Animal Welfare Organisation to show its support and appreciation!

Mr. Paul Dummer and Ms. Miranda Zachariou of Aphrodite Hills Resort hand over the check of €1000 to Mrs. Suzanne Ashmore of Paphiakos & CCP Animal Welfare.

Unleash your potential with renowned sports psychologist

We would like to invite you to a first in Cyprus. A free seminar by renowned sports psychologist, Kurt Wiederkehr, where he will teach the basics of a new way to learn, to unlock the potential you have in tennis, other sports, business and life in general. It will help you to stop fighting against yourself and learn how to win.

Kurt Wiederkehr has developed the Mental Matchplay (MMP)method over a number of years and has its inspiration from the years he spent with Timothy Gallwey in the USA, author of the Inner Game of Tennis, the Inner game of Golf, the Inner game of Work and several others. This has been combined with studies carried out by Kurt Wiederkehr over a period of 15 years, where the behaviour of 50,000 tennis players was researched and scientifically analysed.

Aphrodite Hills Tennis Academy is run by the European Tennis Academy, the brainchild of Kurt Wiederkehr, which very successfully utilises the Mental Match Play method in its tennis coaching.

If you would like to attend what we believe will be a very special event, or would like to arrange an interview, please do not hesitate to contact Jay or Wyn on +357 26 828122 or

Learn Golf for “FREE” - the “EASY WAY”

Headings are always important! Learn Golf for “FREE” - ‘What is the catch?’ I hear you say! There really is NO catch!

2011 is the year to take up golf; the Golf team has created a new initiative, where Resort residents and local residents will have the opportunity to try golf - no catch - no commitment! It’s simple!

I will be heading a project team with the aim of introducing golf to nearly 500 people throughout 2011; so if you have ever considered trying or wonder what the fuss is about when you hear your friends talking about golf… now is the time to try.

The concept is simple; any potential golfer can come for a ‘taster lesson’ or ‘introduction’, it will be my job to have everyone go away with sufficient understanding and ability to hit the ball up in the air and a reasonable distance. Tough task you may think, but with many years of introducing golf to thousands of new people, I can assure you of your success. You may even like it… and if you do, the initiative doesn’t stop there!

This month, we will be launching membership to the ‘Academy Club’ - the Academy Membership is a stepping stone and the vehicle to make you a golfer. The Academy Club will run many regular activities including:

  • Monthly group lessons & clinics
  • Range balls for practice
  • Unlimited access & play on the 3-hole academy course
  • Monthly tournament
  • Rules & etiquette seminars

All you need to do is contact the Golf Team: or via telephone: +357 26 82 82 00 for your FREE introductory lesson. Just leave your name and contact details and we will contact you with the available lesson times and will get you booked in. If you, your friends or a group of you would like to be introduced to golf, just remember there is no commitment - call today to book your places. But watch out, I might be able to get you hooked on the game!

I look forward to seeing you all at the golf range and can’t wait to put a golf club in your hand (the correct way of course!).
