Part of the elegant Puente Romano resort that is also home to a luxurious spa and one of Marbella’s finest fine dining areas, the tennis club is an integral part of the classic glamour and sophistication that surrounds one of Marbella’s most iconic landmarks of luxury. The sister resort of the famous Marbella Club Hotel – where the story of Marbella as a jet-set destination was first born – has played its own role in the process of making Marbella a high society spot on the European map, hosting a series of top events over the years that range from evening concerts to hospitality events and the Senior Masters Cup.
The latter event is a particular high-point, with Marbella crowds flocking to see stars such as John McEnroe, Tim Courier, Mats Wilander, Yannick Noah, Michael Stich, Carlos Moya, Albert Costa, Sebastien Grosjean, Henri Leconte and Pat Cash, among many others. In its early days the club boasted none other than the legendary Bjorn Borg and veteran Spanish Wimbledon champion Manolo Santana as its sports directors, and the legacy they left continues to flourish in the form of tournaments, membership, youth programmes and the standard of experience offered to visitors to the resort.
Set in suitably stylish surroundings, with the iconic backdrop of Marbella’s La Concha Mountain to inspire players, the facilities include eight clay courts, two Plexipave courts, four paddle tennis courts and a fully equipped gym, massage room and changing rooms with sauna and steam baths. The clubhouse is not surprisingly sporty yet refined, and just to prove that the Puente Romano Tennis Club is thriving and expanding, the 2,500 seat main court will be expanded to host 9,000 spectators as well as offering a host of modern amenities when Spain and Great Britain meet in round one of the 2018 Davis Cup.
