Thanks to the Mallorcan tennis champions Carlos Moya and Rafael Nadal tennis has made its way back into the limelight. Right so, as the variety of clubs and courts is endless and the season lasts 12 months. […] Tennis Paradise Mallorca
You don’t need to study Rafael Nadal’s physique too closely to know that playing tennis is excellent exercise. Tennis is a popular sport on Mallorca, with the wide availability of courts and clubs around the island, a climate that makes it possible to play outdoors any time of year, and the availability of professional coaches. No wonder the island has spawned tennis stars such as Rafa, Carlos Moya, and former women’s player Nuria Llagostera.
Most courts here are either hard or sand, rather than lawn. Many are floodlit, so you can enjoy your sport after dark, when it’s cooler, during the warmer months. For youngsters with serious tennis ambitions, Rafael Nadal’s Tennis Academy in Manacor is due to open in the summer of 2016. Taking lessons – either individually or as part of a class – will give you confidence on the court and ensure that your style of playing isn’t likely to lead to injury. Professional instructor Matt Dean is a member of the Professional Tennis Registryand offers lessons at your home or any private court on Mallorca.
