Amazon Sports Services

Why Amazon: We wanted a name that combined successfully the following concepts: Sports, energy, power, honor, courage, braveness and at the same time combined and merged all these successfully with our own Greek heritage.

The word "Amazon": The word Amazon is of unknown origin, however a folk etymology popped up which explained the word as being a derivative of the preface "a-", meaning "without", followed by "mazos", meaning "breast". This folk etymology was supported by the folktale that Amazons cut off one breast to facilitate archery.

Who were the Amazons: Historically, Amazons were portrayed as beautiful women in Amazonomachies, which was an art form showing battles between the Amazons and Greeks. Amazons were trained to use all weapons and especially in single combat. They were honorable, courageous, brave and represented rebellion against sexism. Their tales spread quickly and soon stories of the Amazons were everywhere, including Africa, Asia, Europe, South America (the Amazon River was named after the female warriors), and North America in the mid-1900s with the comic book hero, Wonder Woman.

Who are we: Just like our athlete customers we are also modern day Amazons. Most members on our team are ex-athletes (professional and amateur).

We are also one of the founding partners of YourCyprus.com, so you can be sure that we know pretty much everything there is to know about Cyprus.

We have excellent contacts with all the official and unofficial sports organizations in Cyprus and we have 8 years hands-on experience in tourism and hospitality services. We have organized everything from conferences, sports trips and even weddings!
