Comment from the President

“Like many others in the industry, we experienced generally tougher market conditions during the first quarter. That is why we are especially pleased to report double-digit growth, although lower than before, and continued high profitability. We see this as proof that we are doing the right things – by building the brand and developing the business,” says President Nils Vinberg.

At the heart of our heritage.
The Puente Romano Tennis Club in Marbella boasts a rich history and a longstanding association with tennis legends. A pivotal figure in the club’s early years was the legendary tennis icon Björn Borg.
Borg’s ties with the Puente Romano Tennis Club strengthened significantly in 1980 when the club served as the venue for his wedding.
Although Björn Borg’s direct involvement in managing the Puente Romano Tennis Club eventually concluded, his enduring legacy laid the groundwork for the club’s esteemed status in the tennis realm.

Our entire SS24 Racquet Club Collection is shoot here, at Puente Romano Tennis Club.
