Plaza Mayor

The most exciting option is of course the newly built clay court in the central Plaza Mayor. From April 6th to April 26th, a perfect replica of courts at Caja Mágica will be open for public rental in the square.

You can book one-hour sessions through the Playtomic app for just €1, symbolically welcoming everyone in to partake in this amazing experience.

Gerard Tsobanian, the CEO of the Mutua Madrid Open, shared his enthusiasm about the commencement of the setup process, which started early Monday morning on April 1st

Caja Mágica

“The court we installed in Colón last year was a resounding success. The available hours were quickly sold out and all fans were able to play tennis in an incredible setting. This time we have chosen the Plaza Mayor for everything it means for the city, and also on a tourist level. We are convinced that the track will once again surprise everyone.” He said. "I would like to thank the Madrid City Council for its collaboration to make a track a reality that will allow all citizens to step on an identical reproduction of the Manolo Santana."
