the best places to play tennis in Boston? You are in luck! One of my favorite things about living in Boston is the abundance of public tennis courts. We as Bostonians are really fortunate to be able to play for free! Why not use it to our full advantage?
Below is a list of my top 10 favorite public tennis courts in the Boston metro area. Grab a partner, check them out and get playing!Slide3
. Titus Sparrow Park - South End
By far my favorite tennis court in Boston. This single public tennis court is completely fenced in, which means that you don't have to go chase down your ball or be interrupted by other players. It also includes a backboard to warm up by yourself while you are waiting for your tennis partner. There are brick walls on three sides of the court, which amplifies the sound of the ball and makes you feel like such a badass! This court is hidden gem but also popular in the South End community, so timing is key. I suggest going in the morning or late afternoon. If you find the court occupied you can walk down the street to
tennis courts for a back-up, details in numero dos. Slide4
2. Northeastern University / Carter Playground – South End
Northeastern has 5 public hard tennis courts. The condition of the courts is fair, not phenomenal but you are more likely able to play without a wait due to the fact that there are 5 courts. However, they are popular during peak times, think weekends between 11am-3pm. Players also tend to meet their partners at half hour intervals so try meeting up at 11:20am instead of 11:30am and you will be more likely to be first in line for a court.Slide5
3. Boston Common - Downtown
These courts aren’t a secret but couldn’t be in a better spot. In the middle of the city, these courts are perfect if you are looking for something super accessible and if you are a bit of an exhibitionist since you will most likely have spectators. Be prepared to wait unless you are an early riser because these courts are popular. They are hard courts and lighted as well! Come late in the evening to miss the crowds and play under the lights and stars.
4. Prince Street Park / Charlestown Bridge – North End
Playing next to the Charles river cannot be beat. Take in the scenery at two hard public courts located right next to the Charlestown Bridge. They are equipped with lights as well.Slide7
5. Joseph Moakley Park – Southie
Southie hosts 3 public tennis courts at Joseph Moakley Park right next to Carson Beach. Play then go for a dip in the ocean (If you are brave enough). Or enjoy the rest of the park with a follow-up game of spike ball or beach volleyball.Slide8
– CambridgeMIT hands down has the best courts the city. There are 12 outdoor hard courts that are in pristine condition and rarely used. They are for the school community only so if you play be wary that you may be kicked off or try to pass as a student. There is an indoor tennis bubble as well that is open to the public but you need a reservation and there is a fee.Slide9
. Peters Park – South
EndPeter’s Park in the South End hosts one hard tennis court. Like the Titus Sparrow Park court, it is rare to be able to play without the distraction of other players and balls flying onto your court. Surrounded by a park and with whole foods a short walk away, this court is another hidden gem in the South End. Slide10
. Constitution Beach –
EastieAnother gorgeous location! Constitution Beach Park hosts 3 hard courts alongside the ocean. You can play tennis and then take a dip in the water. Could it get any better?Slide11
. Charles Bank Playground – West
EndNext to the Museum of Science bridge and alongside Storrow Drive there are two tennis courts. Cars are whipping by but the Charles River is on one side and provides a beautiful view and breezes. Slide12
. Greene-Rose Heritage Park
– CambridgeClose to MIT this Cambridge park has one hard tennis court that are open to the public. Remember for all courts it is a first come, first served system. This is a great back-up court if you are kicked out of MIT or vice versa. Slide13
. Peters Park – South
EndPeter’s Park in the South End hosts one hard tennis court. Like the Titus Sparrow Park court, it is rare to be able to play without the distraction of other players and balls flying onto your court. Surrounded by a park and with whole foods a short walk away, this court is another hidden gem in the South End. Slide14
