Tennis in Mallorca
Tennis plays a big part in Mallorcan life; popular with all ages it is played all year round. The courts across the island are generally clay or hard courts, which are perfect for learning as it encourages long rallies and a slightly slower pace.
Part of the enthusiasm for tennis on Mallorca comes from the success of Rafael Nadal who is in fact creating an international tennis center in his hometown of Manacor. The construction is expected to begin at the end of this summer and the project is being entirely funded by Nadal.
For visitors, there are many coaching centers and courts on the island, and you can book courts as a non-member at most of the clubs. Here are some of the best:
- The Matt Dean Coaching Centres in Palma Nova and Soller
- The Jonathan Markson Tennis Camp in Paguera
- The Tennis Academy Mallorca also in Paguera
- And closest to our villas, is the Eu Moll Tennis Club on the outskirts of Port Pollenca (Puerto Pollenca).
Luxury villa Can Totxa is just two kilometers from the old town of Pollenca and benefits from a private all-weather tennis court.
