It is known to tennis fans that world number one Novak Djokovic owns a property in Marbella and loves to make it his personal training base, spending long recovery periods in its lovely climate and environs, and also training at the exclusive Puente Romano tennis club. However, the fact that he also chose Marbella to spend the lockdown period is another indication of the fondness the tennis star has for our town, whose connection with the sport goes all the way back to Manolo Santana, John McEnroe and the legendary Bjorn Borg, to name but a few.

Manolo Santana, who won the Wimbledon title in 1966 and owns the Marbella tennis club named after him, is synonymous with the town, while Borg was the first director of the Puente Romano tennis club. John McEnroe, Yannick Noah and the likes of David Ferrer also have a longstanding connection with the town through the annual Marbella Seniors Masters, underlining the link between Marbella and tennis, which is also visible in many of the luxurious villas and exclusive apartment complexes in the area.

Marbella villas with tennis courts
Indeed, in addition to the excellent racquet clubs in the area, many of the finest apartment complexes have their own tennis and paddle tennis courts, while the finer villas even feature private courts – usually discreetly tucked away within the greenery of gardens within walking distance of the swimming pool. Some properties with tennis courts actually boast a pavilion complete with seating, changing rooms, toilets and a little clubhouse with bar and occasionally even a pool of its own. The range of options is great, so no wonder tennis aces come to Marbella to practise and extend their stay.

Marbella properties with tennis courts often come with the opportunity to enjoy the game amid inspiring sea and mountain views, such as this stunning villa for sale with tennis court specially approved by former tennis champion Gabriela Sabatini.

Properties such as this ensure the longstanding connection between tennis and Marbella remains strong, with Novak Djokovic forming the latest example of this wonderful mutual love affair. Contact Marbella Hills Homes for more information about Marbella properties with tennis facilities.
