Tennis in Bermuda

In the nearly 150 years since Bermudian Mary Ewing Outerbridge brought the sport to the U.S., the island has served up quite a legacy for tennis.

A perfect year-round climate and dozens of scenic, top-notch courts have attracted championship-level play and even an exclusive partnership with the USTA that kicked off with the 2019 U.S. Open. See all that's in store for tennis lovers out here.

Bermuda Loves Tennis

The game of tennis as we know it has important roots in Bermuda. Mary Ewing Outerbridge, who is widely considered the "Mother of American Tennis," was born in the U.S. to Bermudian parents. Mary picked it up during a visit to the island in 1874, and later brought tennis equipment back to her home in Staten Island, New York. In the U.S. and Bermuda alike, tennis has since been a fixture in the sporting world.

Where to Play

Wherever you play on the island, you're invariably going to be somewhere surrounded by natural beauty and never far from places to stay and things to do. Serve up on a pink-hued court with the beach as your backdrop at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. For the best ocean breeze on the South Shore, opt for Court 6 at Fairmont Southampton (Temporarily Closed). Coral Beach & Tennis Club is largely considered the epicentre of the island's tennis community and hosts many of the island's tournaments. Wherever you end up, try not to let those breathtaking views distract you too much.
