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.
Phone 0583 805342 for information.
The trees make it all look very regal!
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.
Wish I could play tennis to enjoy it 🙂
You could have some lessons there.
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.
Thank you for yours positive comments!! Yes, you can play for the whole year…inside the covers!!! The avenue of trees is very nice, follow us to https://www.facebook.com/tennisclub.bagnidilucca see you soon!!
I Filippo, I hope you are having a great summer. I’ll be back in September.
We’ll wait you…we’re working a lot to develop our club, it’s not easy but we are trying to do it!!!! Anyway thank you for yours support!!!!!
When I come back I would like to come and do a story about your club. I think you have a restaurant there as well.
Yes, it’s possible to have dinner, write an history? or nice, I’ll try to give you some informations like that.
That sounds great! I will come to see you when I come back to Bagni di Lucca in September.

Another great facility available in our town. We should change its name to Bagni di “Lucky”, as we are very lucky indeed.
There is actually quite a lot to do in Bagni di Lucca when you know where to look.
