Tennis at Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts

The Racquet Club at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club

Rated “one of the top adult tennis camps in the nation” by Tennis magazine, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club is the epicenter of northeast Florida tennis. Cradled between lush green fairways and the wide blue Atlantic Ocean, Ponte Vedra's Racquet Club has evolved from a single clay court over 80 years ago to its honored status today as the “Official Tennis Club of the ATP World Tour.” A full complement of year-round resort activities, instructional programs and packages attract tennis enthusiasts to the resort year after year.

Guests at sister resort, The Lodge & Club (located 1.5 miles south), enjoy playing and charging privileges at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club.
