The Necker Cup

Paradise is a jammy net cord away!

Don’t miss out on the unforgettable opportunity of a lifetime. The Necker Cup, held annually on Richard Branson’s very own private island, attracts some of the biggest legends in tennis. Amongst the superstar names attending this year are Martina Hingis, Stefan Edberg, Daniela Hantuchova and Todd Martin, with Robin Thicke headlining the entertainment. But you’ve got to be in it to win it.

In fact, your dodgy backhander could be sending you on an all expenses paid trip to take part in the star-studded 2016 Necker Cup, playing alongside some of the biggest names in tennis. Our mixed doubles qualifying tournament will be held from 30 September-2 October in all racquets clubs across the UK. One male and one female will emerge victorious at the finals held at the Royal Berkshire Health & Racquets Club on 22 October. Entry fee is £5, and partners are picked at random which means you don’t have to be particularly good – you just need to try. It really is anyone’s game.

To register for the adult tournament please speak to Reception or a member of the Racquets team.

Junior tournament

As a UK first Virgin Active will be hosting 5 regional qualifying’s, where U14 boys and girls will compete together in a tie-break shoot out event to determine the qualifiers for the national finals. There are no ratings or rankings at stake here, just the chance of a lifetime to play on Sir Richard Branson’s island for one lucky player.
