Train with Leon Smith
La Manga Club has some of the best tennis facilities in the world
Great Britain’s Davis Cup captain Leon Smith is hosting an academy week at La Manga club in Spain this October
Smith, who captained Great Britain to an historic Davis Cup victory last year, will offer advice, tuition and tips to players at La Manga Club from October 17-21.
It is not the first time Smith has visited the resort, which boasts 28 tennis courts (20 clay, four hard, four artificial grass). La Manga Club is the official overseas training base of the Lawn Tennis Association.
“La Manga Club has some of the best tennis facilities in the world and it has played an important part in helping our players excel on the international stage, and to deliver one of the most successful periods ever in British tennis,” said Smith.
“The training environment at the resort is second to none. The players love coming here and I’m delighted to have this opportunity to give tennis lovers the chance to not only train here but also gain a real insight and understanding of our methods and approach that helped us to win the Davis Cup.”
As well as starting each day with an on-court presentation, Smith will be on hand to help players improve their technique. At the end of the week he will also give an insight into the success of the Davis Cup team and host a Q&A session before a gala dinner at the Amapola restaurant.
