Think you may be the next Serena Williams or Rafael Nadal? Whether you prefer playing in grass or clay courts, a private club or a more casual environment, Hong Kong has no shortage of great tennis training grounds. Now that the sun is out and the warm weather is slowly creeping in, why not shake off the dust on your racket and head to one of these locations for a good game of tennis.
Well hidden within this gem of a park, Victoria Park’s tennis centre court, enclosed with spectator seating for over 3,000 people, is often used to host international tennis tournaments such as the Hong Kong Open and the Hong Kong Tennis Classic. Nestled between a swimming pool, a bowling green, football pitches, and a remote control boat pool, you’ll be surrounded by a plethora of things to see and do, but don’t let that distract you from hitting that perfect serve.
