Information about tennis in Spain. Where to play, how much it costs and some of the best private and public courts across the country

Long regarded as an elite sport in Spain, tennis, along with most other racquet sports have taken a little longer to attract Spaniards to jump on the bandwagon. For years tennis lacked in appeal due to a shortage of public tennis courts, in conjunction with high prices for private clubs. Lately, however, Spain has become one of the world’s strongest tennis countries and now produces some of the world’s best players.
Growing steadily in popularity, tennis is fast becoming the new “it” sport in Spain. Thanks to Rafael Nadal´s continuous rise to stardom and the increase in tennis courts and clubs across the country, tennis is becoming the new sport of choice for singles, families and those looking to get a little exercise all year round.
Due to Spain’s incredibly accommodating climate, tennis lovers can play outside most of the year on the thousands of courts around the country.
Check out some of the best places to play tennis in Spain:

Tennis In Barcelona

There are several clubs throughout the city where non members can play. Two of the more well known clubs include Val d’Hebron and Pompea, near Montjuic. Typically more popular, as it has both a mixture of green (hard) and clay courts, Val d’Hebron games are 21 euros per hour for clay courts and 13 euros for a hard court. Pompea is slightly cheaper at 12 euros an hour, however there are only clay courts and fewer of them.

Tennis In Madrid

In 2002 Madrid became part of the international circuit of the Association of Tennis Professionals and joined the list of cities hosting the Masters Series. Due to the incredible success of the event, Madrid has now become one of the tennis capitals of the world.

For current information about tennis, the Madrid Tennis Federation (http://www.ftm.es) is the place to go to find out about schools, clubs and courts as well as things like wheelchair tennis and more specialized games.

In a few years Madrid plans on creating the Madrid Manzanares Park, which will be home to the tennis center, dubbed, the Magic Box. This is set to be a one of a kind creation, with covered stadiums and stands capable of seating 12,000, 3,500 and 2,500 spectators respectively. The complex is going to have 16 outdoor courts, 5 indoor courts with seating for 500 spectators and 6 covered training courts.
