Cape May Tennis - 'a good call beats a great shot!'

 Friends and family — we grew up playing tennis at the Cape May Tennis Club

Friends and family — we grew up playing tennis at the Cape May Tennis Club

We've had quite a few enquires about where to play tennis in Cape May which reminded me of the best coaching advice I ever received "a good call, beats a great shot!" A great thing about the Longfellow Guest House — we're centrally located to so many activities - doesn't matter if you're beaching it...or looking to pick up a game of doubles at the Cape May Tennis Club ( 5 minute bike ride). 

Definitely Check out Cape May's Fantastic Tennis Club

During the summer season, the courts open at 8am. Great value, as you can pay by the hour or ask the pro-shop about securing a week membership.

You should get there at least 15 minutes earlier to secure a court - if you're not a morning person, stop by at 4pm and you're sure to catch a match. 

As a kid, I ballboy'ed, swept the courts and cleaned the court lines with Bobbie Allison, Tony White (who still helps out with his wife Laura) and "big Joe", 

You can sign up for individual lessons and there's a few friendly tournaments during the summer - all in all a great place which kept me out of mischief!
