The Yacht Club Tennis Courts located on the grounds of the Yacht Club Community Park, is the City's primary tennis facility and includes five (5) lighted asphalt tennis courts which are open to the public from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Monday though Friday, and from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. At this location, a tennis pro staff is available for both private and groups lessons as well as league play, and a pro shop is located on-site which offers tennis shoes, equipment, and racquet stringing during regular operating hours.
Annual memberships can be purchased to utilize the Yacht Club Tennis Courts or non-members can enjoy the facilities by paying a daily fee for court time and/or participation in organized tennis activities. For more information about activities offered at the Yacht Club Tennis Courts or to reserve a court during open play, call (239) 574-0808.

While the courts are available on a first come, first serve basis, please be courteous by limiting your court time to one hour when others are waiting.
