Play tennis in Bagni di Lucca

There is a tennis club in La Villa, the main village of Bagni di Lucca. The courts operate all year. In winter there are huge covers erected to keep out the rain and cold.

I have been here since early February and it has been fun to watch these trees turn green with the arrival of spring.

Now the covers are off for the summer.

The courts are clay and some friends played there recently and said they were excellent.

The courts are for hire, with or without your own equipment.

    • I love those avenues of trees. They are also on the way in and out of Bagni di Lucca and they look wonderful in spring and summer when they form a tunnel along the roads.

  1. Lovely Debra. More old world glamour in Bagni di Lucca….I spied this little club when I was there with you in May, on my walks up to La Villa. Looked like they were getting it all ready for the season.

    • It operates all year. I often hear balls being hit in the middle of winter on my walks up to La Villa. It looks more inviting in summer. It would be perfect to play there on a beautiful summer evening.

  2. Another great facility available in our town. We should change its name to Bagni di “Lucky”, as we are very lucky indeed.
