Dirt ball in style

Bearing in mind that our members are from all over the globe (including Spain), Spain is on the green list for some countries, but not for others, and, it’s quite tricky to keep up – we’re leaving it up to you to work out!
Our job is to give members a glorious, sun-drenched tennis masterclass & tournament option for the month of May.
And what better option than in the heart of the Beverley Hills of Europe, with our friends at the Puente Romano Beach Resort.
So dig out those clay court treads, linen threads and read on:
