Marbella’s tennis lifestyle

Though renowned for its golf courses, Marbella is also a centre of tennis with roots that go back to the heyday of the game. Of the many racquet clubs in the area perhaps the most glamorous of all is the Puente Romano Tennis Club, first opened in 1979 with none other than the legendary Bjorn Borg at the helm.

He was later succeeded by Spain’s own Wimbledon champion, Manolo Santana, who later founded the elegant racquet club near Nueva Andalucía that bears his name. At these and many other tennis clubs the standard of facilities is suitably high, from the courts and coaching facilities for a wide range of ages and levels to the clubhouses, restaurants, bars, cafés, shops and even gyms that complete a very comprehensive offering.

The championship standard courts have been home to international competitions, with Marbella hosting the Senior Master Cup at the Puente Romano Tennis Club and the Davis Cup at this elegant venue as well as the local bullring on different occasions.

Paddle tennis is another variant of the game for which Marbella has become an international centre, with a growing number of both Spanish and foreign residents succumbing to the charms of a sport that blends the best attributes of tennis and squash. More than sport alone, it is a highly sociable tradition that adds to the quality of life in Marbella and surroundings.

In addition to clubs you will also find a significant number of apartment complexes and private villas featuring their own tennis and/or paddle tennis courts, a facility that has everything to do with the gentle climate and outdoor lifestyle of this beautiful, sunny part of Europe that is perfectly suited to almost year-round sports activities.
