Featuring tennis veteran Greg Rusedski on the front cover, the August edition of the Algarve Goodlife Magazine is out now and places special focus on the social game that tennis is known for in the region.
An interview with Elke Dalkmann, owner of one of the longest-established tennis clubs in the Algarve, the Carvoeiro Clube de Ténis, reveals how the club’s social aspect is at the core of its success.
Following the theme, a special report by Dirk Hinrichs, a tennis coach himself, highlights what lovers of the sport can expect at this year’s Vale do Lobo Grand Champions and there is even an opportunity for readers to win tickets to the popular event.
Today (August 6), Benfica football star Luciano would be celebrating his 70th anniversary had he not had his life cut short by a tragic accident at the age of 26.
The Times newspaper even reported news of the tragedy which killed Eusébio’s teammate in 1966. You can read all about this piece of Portuguese football history in an article penned by Chris Wright.
Footballer Eamonn O’Keefe spoke to the magazine about his newly released book …I only wanted to play football and the trials and tribulations that led to him writing it.
But it’s not all sport in the August edition. You can read about regular Algarve visitors Gemma and Toby Walters and their fairytale story, José Pearce de Azevedo, the man who invented tourism in the Algarve, and Portuguese historical figures José Saramago and Duarte Pacheco.
Wine lovers can also start planning their next getaway in Portugal with the help of columnists Roger Green and Lynne Booker who write about the country’s wine producing Solares (manor houses) and Palmela town respectively.
This and much more can be found in the August edition of Algarve Goodlife Magazine, price 2 Euros, available from most newsstands across the Algarve.
