Working with our friends from beachvolleycamps.ch we are delighted to bring you a fantastic training camp on the beautiful Ballearic island of Mallorca! It’s a fabulous opportunity for a week of high-quality training in a stunning location.
Included in the package are nine high-quality beach volleyball training sessions with excellent coaches, unlimited free play, a king-and-queen session under floodlights, a half-board stay in a top class 4-star hotel, camp kit and an airport transfer. Plus of course the chance to meet loads of new people, soak up some Spanish sun and sample the local food! Read on below for more details, or if you’re ready to book hit this button:
Most days feature two 2-hour training sessions with expert coaches from across the world. Session #1 is generally from 10-12 and session #2 is from 3-5, although this sometimes varies should the group wish it. Beyond that, we have an optional king and queen of the court session on Tuesday evening, group dinner on Thursday and then a group night out on Friday.
The rest of your time is your own. You can go for a dip in the sea or the hotel pool; give padel or tennis a go at the hotel courts; head into Cala Rajada for food, ice cream and sightseeing; or chill around the hotel enjoying the sun!
Hotel Na Taconera is a stunning 4-star hotel located in the quiet seaside village of Font de Sa Cala in East Mallorca. The hotel specialises in sport, and has two swimming pools, four beach volleyball courts, a fully equipped gym, padel and clay tennis courts on site.
On the standard package you will be put in a twin room with half board, giving you access to breakfast and lunch or dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. You can choose to upgrade to full board, to have your own room or a superior room category.
The camp takes place in the beautiful Mallorcan coastal village of Font de Sa Cala. Most guests choose to stay in the 4* Hotel Na Taconera, where four of the courts are found. The other four courts we will use for the camp are a short 5-minute walk down the road at the Font de Sa Cala beach, where you can head into the sea for an immediate post-training dip or take a cold drink from the bar after working hard!
The nearest town is Cala Rajada, which is a short taxi ride or about a half-hour walk away. Cala Rajada has lots of fantastic restaurants and a thriving club scene.
If you fancy seeing some sights on Wednesday afternoon there are lots of lovely Mallorcan villages around the area, as well as fabulous hiking, cycling and restaurants.
