Play Tennis in Paris

  • Jardin du Luxembourg
    +33-1-43-25-79-18

    Six tennis courts are open to the public at this lovely park and formal garden in the 6th arrondissement, facing a palace built in the 1620s for Marie de Medicis, second wife of Hennry IV. The central location near the Latin Quarter and other Left Bank attractions is convenient to numerous charming hotels.

  • La Faluere
    +33-1-43-74-40-93.

    This is the largest public tennis facility in town, with 19 courts in the Bois de Vincennes park on the far east side of Paris. La Faluere is a long walk or a short bus ride (three stops on the No. 112 line) from the Chateau de Vincennes station at the terminus of the No. 1 Metro line.

  • Suzanne Lenglen
    +33-1-44-26-26-50.

    This facility in the 15th arrondissement in southwestern Paris is named after the first female tennis superstar, Suzanne Lenglen, who dominated the sport during the 1920s. The audacious Lenglen shocked the sporting world with her revealing tennis attire, which exposed her bare calves and forearms to spectators. Fourteen courts are available here (two of them covered), and the facility is easily accessible from the Balard station at the terminus of the No. 8 metro line.
