Courier won in men’s singles the Grand Slams McEnroe was not able to conquer (2 French Open and  2 Australian Open), making the pair an interesting combination.

The players will be here from Thursday to Sunday and during that time will play several exciting tennis matches.

The entertainment will begin as McEnroe and Courier go against the top professionals of La Terraza Tennis Club and La Romana Country Club. Then Casa de Campo’s most skilled villa owners will be able to challenge these veterans in a doubles match.

To finalize the weekend of excitement McEnroe and Courier will go head to head uniting years of skill and experience to give us what we are sure will be a spectacular exhibition match between two legends – most definitely the highlight of the weekend and something nobody will want to miss.

Of course with Casa de Campo having so much to offer, these legends will not only be playing tennis.
