The Costa del Sol is known as a playground for the rich and famous, with wide, sandy beaches, exclusive beach clubs and marinas populated with ultra-luxury yachts. However, in a bid to move away from the purely seasonal nature of the beach life that attracts so many in the summer, Marbella is attracting a growing band of sports lovers.
Of course, Andalucía has long been acknowledged as one of the best places in the world to play golf, with top quality courses and an almost year-round sunny climate attracting both serious golfers and enthusiastic amateurs the year round.
These aren’t the only attractions for outdoors enthusiasts, however, and last weekend sports lovers had a real treat as the Puente Romano Tennis Club hosted a historic Davis Cup tie, in which Great Britain competed against home heroes Spain.
The British team had acknowledged that this was one of the hardest ties they could have drawn, but they put up a valiant effort with relative newcomer Cameron Norrie making a brave final effort before being vanquished by Spanish team member Alberto Ramos, currently 20th in the ATP world ranking.
Marbella proved a wonderful backdrop for the competition, which has been a great platform promoting for the wonderful quality of life in this area. No doubt there were spectators watching across the world wondering what it would be like to live in such a glamorous location.
