Squash, an energetic fun sport

A descendent of the French sport "jeu de paume", squash, like tennis, is a racket and ball sport. With rubbers balls bouncing off the court's walls at breakneck speed, this sport will certainly keep you on your toes. Work your muscles, up your adrenalin and have loads of fun as you and your opponent try to outwit each other with your moves.

Dynamic, entertaining, mood-boosting and great for overall health, squash has it all. Various Club Med resorts across the globe have squash on their list of sports. Even if you're in the tropical climates of Bali, Phuket and Bintan, you'll find modern, fully-equipped courts where you can thrash your opponent and show off your reflexes.

Ping Pong to test your reflexes

As the name ping pong suggests, this a rhythmic sport with a rhythmic sound as the paddles and ball do their stuff. As with all Club Med sports, you can enjoy a game just to unwind or to up your sporting prowess. Ping pong is great all-rounder: it tests your reflexes, works your muscles, improves cardiovascular health and is heaps of fun.

From dawn 'til dusk, you can challenge someone to a game at resorts including Cherating Beach, Guilin, Sanya, Turkoise, Rio Das Pedras and Colombus Isle. Whether playing singles or doubles, after breakfast or a day at the beach, for fun or to test your skills, ping pong is a great way to liven things up.

Tennis, by day or night, indoor or outdoor

Serve an ace, show off your backhand or volley like a pro... You'll work your body and have a blast. If you're a tennis buff who still wants to play during your holiday, then you can include classes in your Club Med package. Some resorts also have indoor tennis facilities. The Rio Das Pedras resort in Brazil is just one example.

The game play is the same as for outdoor tennis, but there are also some advantages. Firstly, you're not limited to daylight hours and can challenge others to an evening or even night-time match! Plus rain won't stop play, so you can serve away whatever the weather. Want to explore new sporting horizons?
