Marbella Racquet Clubs – follow in the footsteps of the greats
02 August, 2022 Sports
Think of Marbella and golf comes to mind – but also tennis, as the Costa del Sol is home to top clubs and international tournaments inspired by the likes of Manolo Santana, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe and now also Novak Djokovic.
In a region where tennis and ‘paddle’ are almost as popular as golf, there is a rich heritage of prestigious racket clubs that dates back to the very beginnings of the Costa del Sol in the 1950s. Back then, you would spot famous Hollywood stars and European aristocrats playing tennis at the Marbella Club, and when one of Marbella’s most prestigious clubs opened at the Puente Romano Hotel in the late 1970s, the first director of sport was none other than the legendary Bjorn Borg.
Spanish ace Manolo Santana, who won French Open, US Open and Wimbledon titles in the 1960s, opened his own club to create Marbella’s other five-star venue, which like the Puente Romano’s tennis club draws locals and international celebrity members to its tennis and paddle courts. Stylish facilities are the norm, including elegant cafés and restaurants, panoramic terraces and gardens, and of course training facilities and professional coaching.
Famous faces can be spotted playing and practising here, including Novak Djokovic, , while veteran players such as Yannick Noah and John McEnroe have developed a special bond with Marbella after years of entertaining the Puente Romano crowds in the Senior Masters Cup – one of the annual highlights on the social calendar.
These are just two of many excellent tennis courses on the Costa del Sol, with the prestigious Hofsäss Tennis Academy right on the doorstep of your Ocean View home in La Mairena.
