While some tennis players may hibernate their racket for the bleak British winter, La Manga Club is offering the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of some of the game’s top players in the Spanish sun.
Current British-number-ones Andy Murray and Elena Baltacha have both used the five-star resort as a warm-weather training base, while Tim Henman also practiced at La Manga Club in his heyday and former greats Andrew Castle and Jeremy Bates are both regular visitors.
The impressive 28-court tennis centre has hosted both Davis and Fed Cup matches and, as well as a variety of court surfaces, boasts a state-of-the-art academy offering expert tuition and video analysis to anyone feeling their game needs a tune up.
Guests can enjoy the same first-class facilities as the pros while honing their skills during the off season by taking advantage of new winter special offers, starting from just €64 per person per night.
Packages include bed-and-breakfast accommodation in the four-star Las Lomas Village; two hours of court hire per day for two people and entry into the fitness centre at Spa La Manga Club.
Alternatively guests can stay in the five-star Hotel La Manga Club Principe Felipe for as little as €125 per person per night. Both accommodation offers are valid until March 31, 2012, excluding the New Year’s Eve period – December 30, 2011 to January 1, 2012.
La Manga Club boasts unrivalled facilities as a sport and leisure venue including three 18-hole championship golf courses, a 28-court tennis centre and a 2,000sqm spa and fitness centre. It also offers the choice of a five-star hotel, four-star serviced apartments and townhouses, more than 20 bars and restaurants and great fun for children.
