La Manga Club to showcase UK tennis stars of the future

The five-star La Manga Club resort has played an integral role in helping to develop Britain’s tennis stars of the future and will again be at the forefront of the game when the UK’s new generation of up-and-coming players head to Spain to take part in the 4th La Manga Club Cup in June.

As the official overseas training base of the Lawn Tennis Association, the nation’s elite players regularly use the outstanding facilities at La Manga Club’s 28-court academy to train for the biggest events on the world tennis calendar.

But the award-winning venue in Murcia, south-east Spain, is also eager to play a pivotal part in producing tennis’ stars of tomorrow, with the popular La Manga Club Cup – an LTA Grade Three Tournament – providing an ideal stepping stone to future success and some invaluable experience of clay-court tennis.

Taking place from June 28 to July 3, the event provides a unique training week for players to spend with their coaches ahead of the summer tournament circuit, with categories including singles competitions for boys and girls from the ages of 10 to 18, doubles competitions for U14s and men’s and ladies’ singles and doubles events.

There will also be a 10-hour pre-tournament training camp from June 27-28 for competitors to hone their skills in their bid to secure crucial LTA ranking points and win some fantastic luxury prizes.

Entry into the U18s singles events cost €20 per person and €25 per person for the adult singles, while the fee to enter the doubles competitions is just €10 per person for all ages and accommodation discounts of up to 20 per cent are available to all participants staying in the resort. Tournament entries must be booked through the LTA and more information can be found at

Featuring a tennis academy including 20 clay courts, four hard courts and four on artificial grass, La Manga Club boasts some of the best facilities in Europe and British stars including 2003 Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, Heather Watson, Laura Robson and Tim Henman have all used the resort to train over the last decade. It has also been used to stage Davis Cup and Fed Cup matches while it extended its partnership with Tennis Europe for a further two years this spring.

Set in an area three times the size of Monaco, La Manga Club has been at the forefront of sports and leisure destinations in Europe for more than four decades, and recent accolades include being  named best golf hotel in Spain at both the 2014 World Golf Awards and 2015 Today’s Golfer Travel Awards – for the fourth successive year.

In addition to tennis, the venue offers unrivalled facilities as a sport and leisure resort including three 18-hole 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 and more than 20 bars and restaurants.
