You can get a lesson from Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz but it will cost you

Going to the 'Netflix Slam' should be fun if you happen to be rich.

Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are both fun tennis players to watch play. They play with flare and intelligence and there is no shot that neither cannot make. This is one reason that the Netflix Slam, which takes place on March 3, might be an otherwise ridiculous cash grab except that Netflix could not have chosen a likely better matchup. Plus, if you happen to be going to the event in Las Vegas, Nevada, you might have the chance of a lifetime.

That would be hitting the ball with either Nadal or Alcaraz one-on-one. Heck, if you have the money, you could probably hit with both at different times. But the key here is that you have to have a lot of expendable income to do this.

The charge to hit with Nadal or Alcaraz will be $150,000. This would just be you and a tennis great hitting the ball around. That sounds like a dream situation for many tennis fans but is only realistic to those who can afford it.

There will be a group session option as well, but even that will cost a person $50,000. In both the group and one-on-one cases, the time limit will be short. This is simply an easy way for Netflix and the players to make a bit of money. As Nadal and Alcaraz are both professional players, of course, and they earn their living playing the sport, there is nothing truly wrong with them making a bit more money during an exhibition event.

Courtside tickets for the Netflix Slam also are not cheap. These tickets are going for $3,000 a seat. Seats in the lower tier of the stadium were going for $500 to $1,500 while nosebleeds were being sold for $250. If you wanted tickets, however, that might be extremely difficult as the event is mostly sold out.

There are other players involved in the weekend event at MGM Resorts International. On March 4, Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe, among others, will be involved in group clinics. You won't have to pay $50,000 for these groups, but they will still cost you more money that you might be comfortable spending.
