  • The Fairmont Southampton (Southampton Parish): This is Bermuda's premier destination for avid players. Its tennis court complex is the largest on the island, and is maintained in state-of-the-art condition. The deluxe hotel, one of the finest on Bermuda, offers six Plexipave (professional color surface) courts. The courts are somewhat protected from the north winds, but swirling breezes may affect your final score.
  • Elbow Beach (Paget Parish): With the closing of several other tennis courts on the island in recent years, avid tennis players have had to search a bit harder for suitable venues on which to play. With a pedigree dating back to the early days of Bermuda tourism, and with a sprawling physical plant that incorporates just about everything, these five tennis courts are open to visitors who phone ahead. Three of them are lit for night play.
  • Government Tennis Stadium (Pembroke Parish): Although Bermuda has been known as the tennis capital of the Atlantic since 1873, players often complain that the trade winds around the island affect their game, especially near the water. That's why many prefer inland courts, such as those at this government-owned stadium. It offers three clay and five shock-absorbing Plexicushion courts (three illuminated for night play). The facility, which is north of the City of Hamilton, requires players to wear proper tennis attire. A pro shop, a ball machine, and a pro offering private lessons are on-site.
