Where to Play
There are two options for tennis on Kiawah Island. The Roy Barth Tennis Center and the West Beach Tennis Club are both operated by Kiawah Island Golf Resort and are open to the public. You don’t need to be a guest at the resort to play tennis and both clay and hard courts are available for reservation starting at a rate of $36 per hour. If you forgot to bring your rackets with you on vacation, all the gear you’ll need is also available for rent at the tennis center. After your match, find a fun way to cool off or refuel with a drink at the Porch Bar, there are plenty of things left to around on Kiawah Island!
Tennis Camps and Clinics
If you’re looking to spend some time at the spa, drop the kids off at one of Kiawah Resort’s excellent tennis camps. Kids of all ages can learn about the game and have some fun at a camp led by some of the club’s top tennis professionals. However, if you’re looking to sharpen your skills on the courts, Kiawah’s tennis clubs also run adult clinics led by one of the club professionals. These sessions are a great way to take your game to the next level!

The only courts that are open to the public without reservation are at John’s Island Park, an easy 15-minute drive from Kiawah.
