The last of which helps to make up for those delicious vacation splurges! 

Luckily, one of the best tennis facilities on the east coast is located on the Grand Strand: Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort’s Litchfield Racquet Club. It has 17 clay Har-Tru courts, three of which are lighted for night-time play, and a staff of some of the best USPTA/USPTR certified tennis pros in the region on hand to provide top-notch instruction.

The Litchfield Racquet Club isn’t just a great place for adults in the family to play tennis, it’s also home to the Litchfield Tennis School, an acclaimed institution that can be customized to the player and the skill level. Both three-day/nine-hour weekend and four-day/12 hour weekday schools are available year-round.

Another option for visiting tennis enthusiasts is the Myrtle Beach Tennis Center, which boasts 10 courts, eight of which are lighted for night play, as well as a pro shop.
