Mallorca’s tennis excellence enhances the island’s standing as a place to invest

Mallorca’s tennis excellence is on display this week with the ATP Mallorca Championships at the Mallorca Country Club in Santa Ponsa, where current world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev is the top seeded player in the lineup. A well-deserved reputation of tennis excellence helps attract investors to Mallorca.

Mallorca’s reputation for tennis excellence is beyond dispute. After all, one of Mallorca’s most famous sons is Rafa Nadal, who has won 22 Grand Slam men’s singles titles, the most in history, including a record 14 French Open titles, the latest this June. Nadal owns and trains at the state-of-the-art Rafa Nadal Sports Centre Academy in his hometown of Manacor, in the south-east of the island, where the American International School of Mallorca is located. Rafa Nadal is one of the most famous tennis players and sports personalities in the world.

In the south-west of the island, in Santa Ponsa, is the Mallorca Country Club, which was established in cooperation with Wimbledon, and combines traditional lawn tennis with all the perquisites of modern living. It has 12 tennis courts – 6 grass, 5 clay, and 1 hard – and is the only club in Europe that can boast all three surfaces. This is where the ATP250 Mallorca Championships are being held between June 18th and 25th, with the top seed in the lineup being Daniil Medvedev, the world number 2 who won the US open last year. Engel & Völkers Mallorca are proud to sponsor the ATP250 Mallorca Championships and help the island’s international reputation for tennis excellence grow.

Mallorca has the perfect climate for playing tennis, with an excellent outdoor climate almost all year round that makes it easier for budding tennis talents to get the practice they need. Mallorca’s healthy climate has also boosted demand for Mallorca in the wake of the pandemic, as people reassess their priorities, and search out healthier lifestyles.

Tennis is an upmarket sport – just look at the brands like Rolex that sponsor tournaments like Wimbledon – so it stands to reason that tennis fans seek out upmarket destinations like Mallorca for their holidays. They like to go where they can watch and play the sport they love, so outstanding tennis facilities, and an international reputation for tennis excellence, are bound to attract the attention of upmarket holiday-makers and second-home buyers who love tennis.

At Engel & Völkers Mallorca we have long known that Mallorca’s reputation for tennis excellence is one of the island’s many attractions for property investors, and helps make real estate in Mallorca a secure investment. Few other places in the world can boast of Mallorca’s unique combination of famous tennis players, fabulous facilities, and the perfect climate.

As a result we can see property prices on the rise in all upmarket price brackets in the south west of Mallorca, in Santa Ponsa where the Mallorca Country Club is located, with the average cost of a villa rising to between 2 and 3 million euros. The area’s attractions and facilities including its tennis facilities are driving strong demand for property in the area.
