A championship among ATP/WTA professionals and sixteen tennis amateurs
Sir Richard Branson opens the doors of his private island to celebrate the Necker Cup tennis tournament with charity purposes
Have you ever imagined Novak Djokovic revealing you his tips and techniques to you? Or how it would be playing a doubles match against Boris Becker and Rafael Nadal and beating them? This is only possible at the Necker Cup, a tennis tournament that will help you improve your backhand under the direction of real tennis champions.
This is the 5th edition of the exclusive tennis camp that gathers both professionals and amateurs. It will be hosted by Premier Tennis and Necker Island, Richard Branson’s private island, this coming November from the 14th to 19th. It is definitely one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year for tennis lovers.
Enjoy a six-day Pro-Am Tennis Event, practice other amazing outdoors sports in this idyllic island and have fun at the Charity Dinner hosted by Branson - And this is just a small foretaste of what is awaiting for you!
Organized by Premier Tennis’ experienced staff, the event enjoys the invaluable collaboration of 16 ATP/WTA players. In previous editions famous players like Bjorn Borg, Martina Navratilova, Bob Bryan, Ana Ivanovic among others, have participated in this legendary camp.
Throughout the week, professional players will be paired up with sixteen amateur teams of all levels, who will compete in this fun and spirited tennis event. Teams will have to compete to win the bracket that gives access to opt for a place in the Necker Cup Final!
While you’re not on the tennis court, Necker Island, located in The British Virgin Islands, offers you the unique opportunity to spend a fabulous time doing activities such as paddle boarding, sail boat races, kite boarding (Branson's favorite), wakeboarding, snorkeling, massage therapy and beach tennis. This is a true paradise where you can fully enjoy its privacy and exclusivity.
Save some energy for the last evening! A special Charity Dinner, Auction and Party will take place. It is a memorable closure filled with music and live entertainment. A portion of the event profits will be allocated to the Virgin Unite, the National Tennis Foundation, and other leading ATP/WTA player charities.
