The Most Fun & Exclusive Pro-Am Tennis Event in the World.
The Necker Cup presented by Manuka Doctor is six-day/five-night, all inclusive world class Pro-Am Tennis Event hosted by Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island in The British Virgin Islands. The 2016 event is scheduled for November 14- November 19, 2016.

A handicapped scoring format makes it competitive for every player. Teams consist of one pro and up to two amateurs.

As well as great tennis, participants engage in typical Necker Island activities like paddle boarding, sail boat races, kite boarding (Sir Richard’s favorite), wake boarding, snorkeling, massage therapy, beach tennis, parties and more.
Running alongside the Necker Cup is the Legends Camp; Tennis clinics, instruction and most importantly fun, is lead by Wayne Bryan and Murphy Jensen in Virgin Gorda, November 15 – November 19.
