Whether you're a casual player, or someone who trains with purpose every day of the week, you won't believe the multitude of options available when it comes to playing tennis in the Bahamas.
When you poll all of the islands of the Bahamas you will discover that there are more than one hundred tennis courts available for use. Most are located on resort properties, and allow guests to play for free, or private courts where you can pay to reserve your space on the court for a set amount of time. There is also a small smattering of public courses, but finding them is a game of chance that an avid player won't want to play.
Even though resorts offer tennis courts for their guests for free during the day, they will often charge to light the courts at night, so if you don't want to pay up, your best option is to get in a game during daylight hours. If you want to beat the daily heat, try to schedule your court time before 10 a.m.
Some of the larger resorts and private tennis courts have on-site pro shops, with instructors available to help you perfect your serve and your swing.
There are over 40 tennis courts on Grand Bahamas Island, and a combined total of more than 80 between New Providence and Paradise Island. There are also courts on the Abacos Islands, the Berry Islands, Eleuthera, and the Exumas Islands. The chart bellow lists some of the courts throughout the country.
