Mallorca’s most famous tennis export has caused a huge surge in the sport’s popularity on the island. Rafael Nadal, one of the world’s hottest sport stars, is currently funding an international tennis centre in Manacor, his hometown that opened in 2016.
Tennis is a year-round sport in Mallorca thanks to the fantastic climate. With an average of 74 wet days a year, it’s unlikely your game will be rained off.
Summer camps for children are very popular, and there are plenty of programmes tailored to adults, run by multilingual teams, many of whom are ex-professional. Non-members can book courts at most of the clubs, which are plentiful.
An alternative to tennis is the fun sport Padel which can be practised in several courts on Mallorca. Padel is typically played in doubles on an enclosed court a third the size of a tennis court.
