With its year-round balmy weather, Puerto Rico is a wonderful place to play tennis – and there are plenty of places to do so. All major resorts have courts for guests and many are open to non-guests for an hourly fee. Demand is usually high in the early morning and late afternoon, so you might want to play during the cool evenings on a lighted court. If your heart is set on playing at one of the more popular resorts, it is a good idea to reserve court time before you come to Puerto Rico.
Many local communities and country clubs have tennis courts, but they are usually open only to residents, members, and their guests. Military personnel and their dependents have access to the courts at Fort Buchanan in San Juan and Roosevelt Roads in Ceiba.
A good bet is San Juan’s Central Park, located in the heart of the city. It has 17 courts open to the public from 8 AM to 10 PM and fees are very reasonable. Many towns around the island also have public courts and some tennis clubs in major cities that are open to nonmembers for a fee.
If racquetball is your sport, you can find courts at the San Juan YMCA and at Central Park. The XI IRF World Racquetball Championships will be held at these facilities this year.
