Playing tennis is a classic activity for both locals and visitors. Join in on the fun by taking some time to play a few matches with your friends or family. The exercise will feel great and you'll tell everyone about the hard-fought competition again and again.
Fortunately, many of the resorts have their own tennis courts for guest use. Also, don't worry if you forgot anything, because the clothing and outdoor shops sell tennis outfits, racquets and other gear.
Where to play Tennis
Both Rainbow Park (off Rainbow Rd.) and Trent Park (off Willowbrook Rd.) have two courts available on a first-come-first-served basis. All you need to do is bring a racquet, a ball and a friend.
Be sure to take advantage of the two courts located in Pioneer Park at Galena St. and 6th Ave.
Carter Park, on South High Street, has four courts available for use.
Kingdom Park, part of the Breckenridge Recreation Center, has a total of eight courts available. Four are hard-courts, the other four are clay courts. Get ready for those thighs to burn as you rip a forehand shot down the line!
Tennis is still a great way to be active if the weather outside isn't cooperating. Indoor courts are available at the Breckenridge Recreation Center to rent by the hour.
