WORKS have begun on the grandstand at the Puente Romano Tennis Club, in anticipation of next month’s first round Davis Cup clash between Spain and Great Britain.

The tournament will take place between February 2 and 4 in Marbella, and will be the third time the David Cup has been hosted in the city.

The mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, has been supervising the installation project which started last week and which will last until January 29.

On completion, the capacity of the grandstand will reach 9,000, to cater for the influx of Davis Cup fans who will be descending on Marbella.

“Marbella is ensuring that Puente Romano has the best courts for this tie, with two of the world powers fighting for the title,” said Muñoz.

“It is a great sporting and tourism event that the whole city feels is its own. A multidisciplinary team has worked from the beginning to coordinate all areas and make the competition a success,” she added.

800 additional tickets have been put up for sale, and can be purchased through the website and by calling 902 400 222.

Thanks to the Spanish Tennis Federation more than 150 young volunteers will participate in the event, having been trained in the prevention of occupational and safety risks.
