Tennis in Spain has a celebrated history, evolving from a pastime for the elite to a sport practised and celebrated nationwide. In the late 19th century, tennis was seen as a leisure activity for the affluent. The post-World War II era, however, marked a significant shift, as tennis gained popularity across the country, laying the foundation for its current status as a national passion.

The mid-to-late 20th century heralded a golden era in Spanish tennis. This period saw the emergence of iconic players like Manolo Santana, then Rafael Nadal, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, and Carlos Moyá. Their remarkable achievements not only earned them numerous titles but also ignited a passion for tennis among the Spanish populace. Their influence extended beyond the courts, embedding tennis into the cultural fabric of Spain.

Parallel to the rise of traditional tennis, another racket sport began to gain traction in Spain: Padel. Originating in Mexico in the 1960s, padel quickly found a passionate following in Spain. In fact, it’s a hybrid, combining elements of tennis and squash, played on a smaller court enclosed by walls. This sport is particularly known for its social aspect and ease of play, making it accessible to a wide range of players.

Read on to delve a little deeper into Marbella’s close association with top-flight tennis, as well as its grass-roots devotees, and take a closer look into where you can play and what facilities are available. Within this, we’ll also take a look at the padel craze that is growing alongside it and where you can find a court to play this burgeoning sport.

Tennis in Marbella

Marbella’s idyllic climate and relatively affluent society made it a perfect location for year-round play, with many stars of the international circuit basing themselves in the seaside community, either choosing a house there or training for extended periods of time.

It has also become home to several high-profile tennis clubs and academies, attracting both local enthusiasts and international stars. These clubs not only honed the skills of future champions but also became venues for prestigious tournaments.

Over the years, Marbella has embraced padel with equal enthusiasm. The city's clubs and resorts now often feature state-of-the-art padel courts alongside traditional tennis facilities. This has made Marbella a hotspot for both sports, attracting players and fans from around the globe.

The international growth of padel has been meteoric, with its popularity spreading across Europe, the Americas, and even into Asia. It’s easy learning curve, social nature – where there are padel courts, there are so-called ‘mixings,’ or turn-up and play matches – and shorter match durations make it appealing to a broad audience. International tournaments and professional circuits are further evidence of padel's rising status in the world of sports.

Read on to find out where you can play tennis and padel in Marbella. From the crème de la crème to games between friends, there are facilities for everyone, and we examine what each one offers. If you’re one of the many tennis and/ or padel lovers who visit or live in Marbella, read on to find out more!

Where to Play

As tennis is such a popular sport at all levels, it isn’t hard to find a tennis or padel court. Many urbanisations feature tennis courts in their facilities, and public sports centres will offer tennis courts that the public can book. Additionally, thanks to the exceptional southern Spanish climate, there are few days of the year when the weather affects play.
