|Combine Spanish and outdoor sports|
Our special Spanish and Sports programme allows you to learn Spanish with a variety of sports and even try out some new sports! We offer two different options: sport activities which are activities run as an individual activity for a day and daily sports classes that you can sign up to for one or several weeks.
All sports options that we offer are run by different providers in and around El Puerto de Santa Maria, so there are no long journeys involved and all the sports activities are given in Spanish. This offers instant opportunities to put your Spanish into practice, learn more vocabulary and make the most of our fantastic El Puerto de Santa Maria weatherby being outside, active and learning all at once!
Throughout the week, we offer different sports courses that will be run in the afternoon on different days. All sports are separate one day activities that you can do on an individual daily basis. So you might want to sign up for horse riding on Tuesday night, Supercool on Thursday and then padel on Monday the week after. As you can see there is a lot of flexibility with this programme and you sign up for individual activities rather than a programme that runs for the full week.
The sports that we offer are:
* Super Cool: 4 hours of water sports (4pm-8pm), including kayaking, wind-surfing, paddel surfing and catamaran (a type of sailing);
* Horse Riding: Horse riding in Spain is a fantastic experience. Take an evening horse ride along the beach (45-60 minutes long);
* Padel: Try Padel in Spain where it is a very popular sport and is best described as a combination between tennis and squash as you can hit the ball off the walls in this game. This is a very social sport and always played between doubles. This sport is part of our social and cultural events programme and it is not needed to sign up for this beforehand.
With our sport classes you can sign up for golf or tennis classes, in groups or individually. The classes run on a daily basis and can be contracted per week.
* Tennis: Tennis classes can be given one-to-one or within a group, depending on numbers and preference.
*Golf: As with tennis, golf classes can be given to individuals or groups, depending on your preference and availability.
