Match Point at Borgo Egnazia! Martin Verkerk unveils the secrets of tennis
Did you know that tennis is the third most played sport on the planet? Every day, millions of people in every corner of the world dabble in this irresistible blend of elegance, power and fun.
Very few of them thought know what it feels like to tread on the court along with a world-class champion!
From 6th to 14 th May Borgo Egnazia gives you a not-to-be-missed chance of enjoying this amazing thrill. The Dutch champion Martin Verkerk, former number 14 in the world tennis rankings and an ATP Milano winner and Roland Garros French Open finalist, will be our very special “guest coach” in a set of exciting tennis events for adults and children.
We begin on 8 th May with an exhibition-match by Verkerk and our Sunball coach that you’ll be exclusively cheering at a close distance in one of Borgo Egnazia’s own tennis courts.
During Verkerk’s residency, you’ll also have the opportunity to attend a series of private lessons (1, 3 or 5 sessions, in pairs and subject to separate enrollment) held by the champion and our trainer.
Of course, we’ll also have moments for our younger guests: the Dutch player will meet them and share some of his secrets on 9th May (6-16 years old) and on 11th May (12 years and older).
And for the grand finale, be prepared for the thrill of a real challenge: on 13th May Martin Verkerk is waiting for you on one of Borgo Egnazia’s professional US-Open courts: here – staring into each other’s eyes, your hands gripping on your rackets – you’ll delve together into the techniques and tricks for a “perfect match”.
Price starting from € 300 per person in Corte Bella (double occupancy).
