We are delighted to announce that La Manga Club has opened a brand new state of the art High Performance Sports Centre. The only one of its kind in Spain this new facility delivers the very latest technology in sports science that allows all athletes to study all aspects of their training programmes and health.
This facility will provide such an important tool for athletes in modern day sport ensuring they deliver the best performance possible at whatever level they compete at. Available to both professionals and amateurs our guests will be able to research, monitor and assess their performance, improve their health as well as preventing any possible injuries.
As if there is not enough to do, watch and enjoy at La Manga Club we are pleased to announce that netball is also coming to La Manga Club this for a tournament in June.
La Manga Club has held many football tournaments over the years but this year under the newly formed La Manga Sports Festival we are delighted to say that the 2 sports will be available to spectate at the same tournament.
Alongside the La Manga Soccer Sixes will be the La Manga Netball Sevens and the festival will commence in June. Both sports will have approximately 16 teams each competing.
A firm favourite with the boys and girls is the football academy which runs throughout the main school holiday weeks at La Manga Club.
The football academy is organised by La Manga Clubs tennis centre staff at the tennis centre and the football coaching academies usually run in the afternoons allowing the children to participate in another activity in the morning. The tennis academies operate in the morning so the childrens football academies normally begin after 3 pm which allows a lunchtime break and means avoiding the midday sun.
They are coached by a football FA/UEFA qualified professional who has played or coached at a professional club plus several young enthusiastic helpers so apart from having a great deal of fun the children receive some excellent football coaching so improving their football skills.
The range of activities at La Manga Club is enormous with something for everyone, of course you can chill around the pool but if you get little bored there is plenty to do.
If you are a keen golfer or a novice who wishes to improve your game then the golf facilities at La Manga Club are second to none. With three golf courses, South, North and West, which are maintained to the highest of standards you can enjoy some of the very best courses and facilities in Spain. The South course is the Championship course and therefore a handicap certificate is required.
La Manga Club set in the Murcian hills of Spain consists of villas and apartments on acres of beautiful landscaped gardens. Many properties have their own private swimming pool and the community properties have a minimum of one or more shared pools.
Not to be forgotten is the lovely private beach cove, known as La Cala which means cove in Spanish, which La Manga Club has and which lies at the edge of the resort on the beautiful Mediterranean sea. It is a small private cove which is accessed through the mountains and therefore due to the steepness of the mountains you would need to drive down to the sandy beach.
The Mar Menor is a fantastic location for Watersports as it has warm shallow waters which are non-tidal and safe, there is an English run watersports center called Aqua Adicta which is located just 10 mins drive from La Manga Club. This Watersports center has been running for the past 9 years, they specialise in dinghy sailing, windsurfing and kayaking and also offer SUP (stand up paddle) and power boating. All of the activities are suitable for total beginners or improvers and are run on a private basis so you can book what you want when you want it.
With windsurfing or sailing you can book a single lesson or a course; all courses follow the RYA syllabus.
La Manga Club is set in a beautiful location in the Murcian mountains and enjoys stunning views over La Manga del Mar Menor. The Club is on over 1500 acres of walking and riding trails. The activity centre at La Manga is able to provide suggested routes and detailed maps of these trails.
These maps also include the difficulty of the suggested walk, which range from approximately 1 mile up to about 5 or 6 miles.
