The Tennis Center at The Bald Head Island Club is perfectly situated on the southwestern tip of extraordinary Bald Head Island. Gentle ocean breezes and a temperate climate year round help create an ideal venue for outdoor tennis.

The Tennis complex features an elevated pavilion overlooking 4 hard tennis courts. All four tennis courts are newly resurfaced with MondoTen, a multi-layer rubberized system that optimizes shock absorption and uniform speed of play. The courts will provide you with a blend of speed, comfort and safety backed by Mondo, the official track supplier to the Olympics since 1976.  

Our tennis shop, features Babolat tennis racquets, Nike and Adidas tennis apparel and footwear, balls and accessories. Racquet stringing services and ball machine rental is also available.

The professional tennis staff  offers an instructional program that caters to players of all ages and skill levels. Private lessons are also available upon request.  Round robins and special events are planed throughout the season to ensure a memorable tennis experience during your stay on Bald Head Island.
Relax and refresh after tennis at the adjacent Horizons and aquatics center complex. A short stroll will take you to the other areas of the Horizons aquatics complex featuring our croquet greensward, playground areas, fitness center, golf course and golf shop and the welcoming Bald Head Island clubhouse.
