Each year in May a select group of female athletes and not-so athletes head off to the sunny climes of Murcia to stay at the 5* resort of La Manga. The weekend is over the first May Bank Holiday May 3rd to May 6th.
Each year the flight back is just a sea of snoring faces.
What happens inbetween is really down to the individual. Citypink just adds some socials into the mix in the evening. We have a range of women who come along, some want to rest and some want to exercise and some want a girlfriend :)
For those interested in coming we can say that everyone stays at the Principe Felipe Hotel which is in the heart of the resort. The champagne breakfast served each morning gets everyone up. From there is down to you.
Tennis - Some of the ladies take a 10 hours of coaching over the course of the long weekend. This is group coaching at the resorts world class facilities, clay and all weather courts. There is also squash and paddle courts to hire.
Golfing - the resort holds 3 golf courses, a brilliant coaching team and driving range. Some of our group play together over the 3 days and some get golf tuition in the mornings.
Mountain Biking - the resort has many tracks to take either countryside or clifftop to visit the local area.
Spa - there is a beautiful spa on the premises. There is also a fantastic pool at the centre of the hotel where everyone congregates after their activity or as their activity.
In the evening, dinners and drinks are arranged by Citypink. There is normally a good crowd that comes along and the emphasis is on inclusion, fun, friendliness and laughing.
