Murray mania boosts tennis breaks at La Manga Club

18th July 2013 Print

Andy Murray's historic win at Wimbledon has seen fans of the game flock to pick up a racquet with tennis break business booming at Spain's five-star La Manga Club since his victory this month.

The award-winning resort has reported a surge in bookings from tennis lovers eager to extend the summer season after watching Murray become Britain's first men's singles champion for 77 years by beating world number Novak Djokovic.

Murray and British ladies' number one Laura Robson are among the growing list of world stars to have used La Manga Club five-star facilities on their way to tennis stardom, while the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is using the venue as its overseas training base until 2016.

Players of all ages and standards can brush up on all aspects of their game at the venue's magnificent 28-court tennis academy over the coming months - with accommodation and daily court hire or tuition on offer from just €94 per night for a four-night stay.

Available from August 19 until the end of October, the price includes accommodation in the fully serviced, four-star Las Lomas Village apartments, breakfast, VAT and access to Spa La Manga Club's fitness centre, indoor pool, saunas and steam rooms.

Alternatively, players seeking a little bit of extra comfort can stay in the luxury resort's fabulous Principe Felipe Hotel and enjoy the same privileges on a four-night package from only €124 per person per night.

Prices for the 'Best Tennis and More' packages are based on two people sharing a twin or double room and tennis lessons must be booked in advance.

And anyone who would prefer to take a break from tennis for a day has the option to exchange a session for a variety of other activities including a round of golf on one of La Manga Club's three championship courses, a 30-minute spa treatment or dinner in one of the resort's many restaurants.

La Manga Club is Europe's leading tennis destination with 28 courts providing a variety of surfaces on which to play.

As well as its new partnership with the LTA, it has staged various high-profile competitions including Davis and Fed Cup matches, and regularly hosts some of the top stars in the game, with South African number one Kevin Anderson and the Russian Ladies' Tennis Federation the latest leading names to use the resort as a warm weather training base.

In addition to tennis, La Manga Club boasts unrivalled facilities as a sport and leisure venue including three championship golf courses 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 families.
