Racquet Sports at the Clubs is an exciting and ever growing part of St. James. The Clubs at St James are home to 13 Har-Tru (clay) tennis courts. All courts have underground irrigation, and lights for night play. Six courts are located at The Founders Tennis Complex, two at The Members Athletic Center, two are located in the Regency area of the Players Club and three located at The SeaSide Complex.
The programs and facilities at The Clubs at St James provide tennis players, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to participate in a competitive and/or recreational sports activity. The Tennis Shop offers a complete line of tennis clothing, equipment and accessories, as well as racquet stringing and ball machine rental. Individual lessons are available and group clinics are held on a scheduled basis. The tennis facilities may be used by St James residents who have a Sport or Golf Membership in The Clubs at St James and by their guests.
With a total of 12 Har-tru courts spread throughout the community, St. James serves up a tennis lover's paradise. While all courts have crisp greens, underground irrigation and lights for night play, the true heart of tennis at St. James lives at the Founders Club. The space is complete with viewing decks, six courts, and a full offering of lessons, matches, and tournaments that all skill levels can appreciate and enjoy.
If you haven't seen the game in action, pickleball is making quite the "racquet" here at St. James. This quick-moving, high intensity sport has gained popularity so much that we're adding 8 more courts to our current court offering before 2021. The newest facility will have its own private area and bathroom facility, enhancing your space to prepare or wind down from the game.
Looking to improve your skills? No matter your age or skill level, our staff hosts instructional programs to meet a variety of needs through group instruction like clinics and round robins and private lessons.
We're excited to share that the St. James Tennis and Pickleball Associations (SJTA and SJPA) are constantly growing! These associations, made up of property owners, were established to benefit and advocate for all tennis and pickleball enthusiasts at St. James. Whether the play is centered on social interaction or competitive play, both associations support players of all levels.
Conveniently located adjacent to the Founders Clubhouse, the Tennis and Pickleball Pro Shop is your one-stop shop for everything related to racquet sports. Offering a complete line of clothing, equipment, and accessories, you'll also have access to services like racquet stringing and ball machine rental.
