Play Local: Honolulu is a Hit Among Tennis Players

Hawaii is the country’s slice of paradise and a dreamy destination for those who play tennis. The state capital, Honolulu, is the archipelago’s most populous city, and the headquarters of the USTA Hawaii Pacific Section, an organization to which approximately 7,500 tennis players belong across Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. MyTennisLessons is proud to have tennis instructors located in Honolulu and we can’t wait to share with you why this city is a haven for all tennis players — whether from the area or on vacation in this tropical locale.

JW Marriott Ihilani Ko Olina Resort & Spa

For tennis players visiting the Honolulu area, staying at this Marriott is an absolute must. Located about 20 miles west of the city, the resort has six private courts. Guests can sign up for tennis “stroke of the day” clinics or live-ball game clinics.


Diamond Head Tennis Center

Whether you want to hit with a friend, play a match or take a lesson, head to any of these 10 well-maintained tennis courts that give players a view of the stunning Diamond Head volcanic tuff cone. Yelp reviewers also praise the facility’s large parking lot and stadium court with bleachers.


Ala Moana Beach Park

While Diamond Head closes at 7 p.m., tennis fanatics can stay out late at this lighted 10-court facility. After a workout or lesson, walk over to the adjacent white sand beach.


Honolulu Challenger Tournament

Tennis in Hawaii might seem like a recreational activity, but the region has also seen its share of elite competition. For many years, Honolulu brought in international tennis talent for an ATP Challenger Tour event with a $50,000 prize. Top American players, including Robby Ginepri, Ryan Harrison and Jack Sock have competed in this tournament, which moved to Maui in 2014.
