The Jekyll Island Tennis Center is a public facility with 13 clay courts. Totally updated in early 2017, the courts are in great condition. They sit outdoors, surrounded by moss-covered oak trees. For visitors, court costs are $24 / hour. The facility also hosts clinics and private lessons. The pro shop will even rent you a tennis racquet if you left yours at home.
Ask at the pro shop about round robin events that might be taking place during your stay. On November 11, 2017 they will hold one from 1 PM to 4 PM. The modest $15 fee covers your play time, snacks, and beer.
Groups and teams will want to look into the three or four day packages that include several rounds of clinics tailored for your team’s level. Costs vary from $140 – $240 per person, depending on the size of your group and the number of tennis sessions.
Younger players might enjoy a Jekyll Island tennis camp. During 2017 camps targeted beginner and intermediate players in the age brackets of 6 – 10 and 11 – 14. This year’s camps included 20 hours of clinics, a visit to Summer Waves, daily lunch, and a camp t-shirt. Please check with the Tennis Center for the specifics of 2018 offerings.
The center is located mid-island at 400 Captain Wylly Road. Hours are from 9 AM to 5 PM daily. Call for more information or reservations at 912.635.3154.
