Smrikve is a privately owned estate and a tennis club, situated on the outskirts of the city of Pula, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards.
It is located mere 5 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from Pula’s Roman Arena, about 15 minutes from Pula’s International Airport and only few kilometres from the World famous Brioni islands.
Tennis is played in Smrikve for almost three decades. Since 1996, one of the most prestigious under 10 tennis tournaments in the World - Smrikva Bowl - has been gathering "the seeds of the Champions of today and Legends of tomorrow". Today the Smrikva seeds are spread all over the continents of our Planet in almost 60 countries.
