Why Santander?

We want to make Santander the center of reference for Tennis Medicine.

The Palacio de la Magdalena will once again be our location during the International Week of the Hip in Tennis, having the opportunity to show the world the city of Santander whilst bringing together the most recognized professionals in medicine and sports.

Santander is a city that has a tradition of playing tennis.

In 1994 Santander was the venue for the semi-finals of the Federation Cup between Germany and Spain with a 3-2 victory for Spain.

The Palacio de la Magdalena

In 2000, the historic Davis Cup semifinal was played at the Real Club de Tenis de La Magdalena in which Spain defeated the United States 5-0.  In the words of tennis player Álex Corretja, “this has been the most spectacular playoff I have experienced in the Davis Cup.”

Furthermore, in 2006, the RCTM hosted the qualifying match for permanence in the Davis Cup World Group between Spain and Italy, where Rafa Nadal scored the decisive point securing Spain’s place in the World Group.

In addition, the city of Santander is in a time of change and evolution. With the creation of new physical and virtual scenarios to promote its growth, having its development in the axes of innovation and culture, which is in perfect harmony with the MAPFRE Clinic of Tennis Medicine.
