Hosted Tennis Weeks at La Manga, Spain

Your Host, Kevin Wentworth

As an experienced tour operator with many years of arranging specialist tennis holidays, we are pleased to be organising a number of Hosted Tennis Weeks as an integral part of our extensive tennis programme. These Hosted Weeks and Weekends are accompanied by a member of our own staff, a proficient tennis player, who acts as a guide and representative throughout the trip, helping organise communal evening meals and tennis mix-ins. These tennis holidays appeal particularly to single travellers, but we welcome couples or groups of friends.

Tennis at La Manga Club

Still the largest tennis centre in Europe, La Manga Club is also one of the most established and continues to provide some of the finest tennis facilities available anywhere. The academy offers an excellent tennis programme.  A mix of coaching, match play, weekly tournaments and friendly club afternoons. On Fridays, there is usually an exhibition match which can occasionally feature touring pros.  This is always a wonderful way to end a week’s tennis in La Manga.

There is no better way to finish each day than with a glass of sangria, beer or soft drink on the Beirne terrace overlooking the tennis centre.

As well as its 28 tennis courts, this extensive resort also offers a range of other sporting facilities including golf, soccer and horse riding.

In the past the resort has hosted many of the great tennis professionals, as well as most of the national tennis squads (it was, for some time, the European training ground for the LTA). It has also been a summer training round for many of the UK’s Premier League football teams.

La Manga Club has an extensive range of accommodation, much within an easy walk from the tennis centre, from where a team of experienced, professional coaches are available for group and private tennis lessons.
