You don’t have to be one of the greatest tennis players to have ever lived to get real benefits from playing tennis. Tennis develops social skills. Tennis helps with developing positive personality characteristics.

You can learn to develop tactical thinking and solve problems. Tennis can also help someone work through their emotional challenges.

An article in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (Brit J Sports Med as it’s known in science circles) shows that sports activities can increase brain power and prevent cardiovascular disease too.

You will get fit. Lost weight also occurs due to how you burn calories when playing tennis.

Tennis enhances your sense of coordination and can improve your performance in other sports too. You will develop teamwork skills when learning tennis as well.

It’s a great whole family game and doubles play and singles play is possible.

Best of all there is minimal equipment needed to enjoy tennis when compared to many other sports and that means you can easily buy what you need in Bali without having to bring kit from back home.

Now, it’s a question of finding the right tennis court to play on and deciding whether you want private lessons or group classes. Let’s take a look at some of your awesome options here in Bali.

Where To Play Tennis On Vacation, 10 Great Venues

There are plenty of excellent tennis courts for a casual game during your holidays in Bali.

The vast majority of them are situated in the 5-star luxury resort complexes that are found all over the island.

Most of these resorts offer access to their courts for a fee to non-residents, however, their guests will always recieve priority access.

The first location on this list FINS Recreation Club, on the other hand, has tennis courts that are open to everyone.

Though, you may still need to book in advance to be guaranteed court time – it’s a very popular place.

FINNS Recreation Club, Canggu

2023 10 24 TENNIS 18

FINNS is an excellent place to learn tennis or to play tennis with friends and family or to take tennis lessons.

The site is home to three indoor tennis courts with floodlighting and a Flexi-pave surface.

There is a pro shop on site and you can also hire a racket if you need to. Hitting partners and ball boys are present and there’s a junior club for children under 16 (and over 6).

You can enjoy classes here individually or in groups and there are cardio fitness classes too.

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua

The Westin is right on the white sand beach of Nusa Dua and it has 2 full-size tennis courts available for use by its guests.

There are also 5 outdoor pools, 7 restaurants, a fitness centre and a spa for when you’re in need of something other than tennis courts.

You may be able to access their facilities for a fee but you will need to book in advance as guests will always have priority at a resort court.

The onsite sports bar is a great place to watch tennis once you’re finished with your day’s physical workout.

The Ungasan Clifftop Resort, Uluwatu

There is a hard court here as well as lawn tennis and the views at this resort, thanks to its position above the Indian Ocean are incredible.

Just try not to hit the balls over the side, they won’t be coming back. Fortunately, the courts aren’t close to the cliff, so that shouldn’t happen.

Once you’ve finished playing, you can take a dip in their amazing infinity pool which has the best views in Uluwatu.

There is also a full fitness centre here to carry out some casual cardio or strength work and when you’re done, they have a spa to knead out all the aches and pains of the day.

Luxury hotels don’t get much better than this and playing tennis here is a dream come true for many folks.

Swan Paradise, A Pramana Experience, Gianyar

This resort is fully CHSE certified which means that it’s been recognized as a clean, healthy, safe and environmentally-friendly place that contributes to sustainable tourism in Bali.

The court here is all grass and is surrounded on all sides by lush tropical rainforests.

When you’re not hitting the ball back and forth, you can enjoy an amazing view of the volcano in the distance towering above the landscape too.

There’s a very pleasant outdoor pool to cool off in after a few sets and their restaurant is possibly the best in Gianyar.

If you’re intending to see Ubud during your Bali visit, this is a great place to stay.

Melia Bali, Nusa Dua

Melia is an ultra-luxury resort and there are so many sporting facilities here that you simply can’t go wrong.

You can enjoy tennis, squash, paddle and much more! The fitness centre is world-class and it’s really easy to work out and enjoy yourself.

In addition, they also run other sports activities such as canoeing, cycling and archery! You will never be bored at Melia Bali.

The hotel can even provide bicycles for you to get around the local area which is very handy as Nusa Dua is quite spread out.

Your room is likely to have a lovely view out over their resort lagoon pool too. You just can’t go wrong if you love health & fitness activities at Melia.

Luxury Boutique Hotel Bali, Tanah Lot

The Luxury Boutique Hotel Bali has a fantastic clay court and if you’re looking for a different challenge from the usual grass courts, this is where to go.

Smoking is banned entirely throughout the resort which makes it healthier than some of the other resorts in Bali.

This is also a popular area for cycling and the hotel can provide a rental bike for you to enjoy Tanah Lot in an environmentally friendly fashion.

One thing we’ve always liked about this place is that in addition to the usual pool, etc. they also have a billiards room for some more gentle exercise in the evenings.

There’s even an onsite children’s playground for your kids to enjoy when you’re away on the tennis courts.

Handara Golf & Resort Bali, Bedugul

Of course, the primary draw at Handara is the excellent par-72 mountain-top golf course (it’s over 1,000 meters above sea level).

Each of the rooms has an excellent view over the course, in fact.

But when you’re in the mood for other sports, they have a wonderful outdoor court with a hard surface.

They don’t provide any kind of tennis tuition though, not even group classes as their efforts are firmly focused on teaching people golf.

There are some limited tennis items in the pro shop here but again, the focus is mostly on golf and you might be better off buying a racket before you come to this resort.

Grand Mirage Resort & Thalasso Bali, Nusa Dua

This quite lovely resort has the added benefit that it’s mainly all-inclusive and the use of nearly all their onsite facilities is free.

That means you can enjoy tennis, table tennis, and billiards, and use the fitness centre, karaoke and kids club for no extra charge. That’s a lot of value for money.

The location right by Nusa Dua Beach is excellent and you can walk out of the hotel and onto the beach whenever you want to.

We like taking a dip in the attractive outdoor swimming pool after playing tennis at this hotel, it’s so refreshing.

The onsite restaurant is great for refuelling after some exercise too.

This incredible 5-star luxury villa complex is for the seriously well-heeled. Each villa has its own private pool and an incredible home entertainment system.

There is also a wine cellar, a cigar lounge and a spa for some pampering after you’ve spent the day on their excellent tennis court.

You also have access to a personal butler who can arrange nearly anything you need them to .

There are private chefs who will cook you up the perfect menu to enjoy the benefits of your tennis session or to replace your lost calories.

One of Bali’s international standard golf courses is just a 5-minute drive from here too.

This is an amazing resort in Nusa Dua which has an incredible 7 large lagoon-style swimming pools and some seriously impressive views out over the Indian Ocean.

Their tennis court is a hard-surfaced affair within an attractive area that also doubles up as a squash court.

As you’d expect from a hotel of this standard, they also have an excellent fitness centre where you can get a great workout.

They have two excellent onsite restaurants too which means your every need is catered for at The Laguna.

Where To Play Tennis Regularly In Bali (Or On Vacation)

Not everyone in Bali is just looking for a holiday game. There are plenty of expats here and while most start here when they join group activities online, they soon get bored and decide to enjoy other facilities in the real world.

If they have good courts nearby, they often pick tennis as a hobby because it’s more fun than the gym and a cardiovascular workout can help ward off heart disease too.

There is one great club for people to enjoy tennis at in Bali. There is also, potentially, another club on its way.

FINNS Recreation Club, Canggu

2023 10 24 TENNIS

We’ve mentioned FINNS already but it’s worth mentioning again here, FINNS doesn’t only cater to those passing through, it’s also a great place to exercise and learn sports all year round.

There is a range of membership options that can help you get access to the courts at FINNS for a very competitive price and of course, the coaching at FINNS is first-rate.

In fact, we think you’d be hard-pushed to find a better coach anywhere on the island.

The fact that there are three courts at your disposal ensures you have a much better likelihood of getting some time on the court when you want it too.

The facilities onsite in addition to the courts are also very impressive with various fitness classes, boxing lessons, a great lap pool, a gym and much more besides.

We’d also encourage you to check out the sports bar at FINNS, Bistro C, which is a great place to watch the best tennis games live on TV and enjoy some excellent tucker too.

Island Sports Club Bali, Uluwatu (AKA Island Padel Uluwatu)

This Uluwatu-based sports club is mainly about Padel and it has one of the best Padel courts around. You can rent a paddle to play there if you’ve never tried the sport before.

However, they are planning to introduce tennis, golf and fitness centres and when they do, they may have the right facilities to help with your game.

For now, though, we recommend that you contact FINNS if you want to enjoy tennis here in the long term and particularly if you want to work with a coach.

Can You Play Tennis In Bali?

Yes! In fact, there are plenty of tennis players in Bali and lots of tennis courts to enjoy here too. In fact, it’s easier to find a tennis court than a basketball court or squash court.

The pleasant year-round weather makes Bali something of a sports paradise and Novak Djokovic one of the greatest tennis players of all time has played tennis on the island.

However, you don’t need to be Novak Djokovic or anywhere near the level of Novak Djokovic to have a great time playing tennis in Bali.

Where Is The Best Tennis Club And Tennis Store In Bali?

FINNS Tennis at FINNS Recreation Centre. This isn’t because we’re biased but because the club attracts both local and international talent and has the best coaching team around.

With three tennis courts to choose from and league play available for regulars, you just can’t go wrong with FINNS. Our pro shop is excellent and has everything you could want to improve your game.

FINNS offers both group classes and tailored private classes to ensure that you get exactly what you need out of your tennis experience in Bali.

Where To Book A Hotel With A Tennis Court In Bali?

We always recommend that you book a hotel or any other travel experience in Bali through the wonderful Bali Res Center.

This locally managed and owned travel agency has a full range of contacts around the island and can ensure you get the best advice when choosing a hotel with a tennis court.

After all, you don’t want to get there and find a squash court rather than a tennis court, do you?

Why not support a local business rather than use some faceless online corporation for booking your time in Bali?
