70. Play Tennis
Over 300 courts and 19 tennis clubs dot Hilton Head Island. Internationally recognized tennis programs for every age and ability level are offered year around, and there are always tournaments and round robins.
Once you play at one of these clubs you will leave with no doubt in your mind why Tennis magazine ranked Hilton Head among its “50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts.”
Whether you are looking for clay, natural-grass, or hard courts, the following locations will have what you are looking for. With the exception of the public courts, clubs have a per hour charge.
There are two public court locations. One is off Cordillo Road at the entrance to Cordillo Courts Apartments. The courts are open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. (lighted) and are reserved via a sign-up sheet allowing one hour per sign-up. Call 843-681-7273 for additional information.
The other public court is the brand new Chaplin Community Park located between Singleton Beach Road and Burkes Beach Road.
