Tennis is a popular sport for visitors and residents alike in the Turks and Caicos, and many of the larger resort and luxury vacation rentals offer onsite tennis courts and facilities.
Most resorts include the use of tennis courts as a complimentary amenity for guests staying at the resort, and offer reasonable rates for others staying elsewhere.
The Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club in Grace Bay and the Graceway Sports Center near Leeward Highway in central Providenciales both feature lit courts, and are easy for the public to utilize, with low fees and equipment rentals. These facilities are also the better choice for those in need of a partner due to the additional traffic.
Most tennis accessories and equipment can be found for sale in the Turks and Caicos, yet keep in mind that prices will often be much lower than what’s common in the United States, so it makes sense to bring a can of balls with you if you expect to play much. The racket selection is also limited.
Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club
The extensive Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, located on the eastern side of the Grace Bay region, features two well-maintained and lit courts.
The Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club offers both annual memberships, and court rental by the hour. Hourly rates are $20 per adult, $15 for juniors, and $5 for rackets. Reservations are required.
Graceway Sports Center
The centrally located Graceway Sports Center has four fully lit tennis courts, and typically is open late, especially on weekdays.
Choose from annual, monthly, or hourly court rental. Hourly rates are $20 per court. We advise reserving in advance.
Lessons and Instruction
Several full-time professional tennis instructors operate on Providenciales, with services ranging from introduction lessons for all ages, to careful critique of experienced players. Private, group, and child lessons are offered by both the golf club and sports center.
The TCI Tennis Academy, headed by ITF Level 3 certified coach Reinaldo Garcia, operates out of the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club and teaches a wide range of lessons, including private lessons and tennis camps for kids.
Equipment Rental and Sales
Tennis equipment can be purchased and rented at the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, Graceway Sports Center, and entry-level equipment, tennis balls, and other sports equipment is available at Building Materials Do It Center on Leeward Highway.
