In fact, I was walking down Ocean Avenue this afternoon and strolled past the tennis courts during the Ocean City High School's Men's Tennis Team practice session. Students were energetically whacking balls over the nets - well, sometimes into the nets - while the coach shouted instructions and encouragement.
Whatever your level of expertise or experience, during your Jersey shore vacation you can call the Ocean City Recreation Department (609-525-9306) to get information about current classes or programs - for all ages and ability levels. Tennis courts may be reserved in person at 6th. and Atlantic Avenue at a terrific rate of $8./ per hour/ per court! Inn Guests are invited to participate in the Drop-in Clinics of your choice. Just bring your tennis racket and you're set!
The courts were recently re-surfaced and are in excellent condition. In addition, there are 5 lighted courts near the Inn, so enjoying an evening match during the sultry summer months is easy and much cooler! Reserve these tennis courts in advance.
The Scarborough Inn's convenient location places our guests just a 5-minutes walk from the tennis courts at 6th. Street and Ocean Avenue. Recreational games of many kinds abound on the island and we'll be happy to help you find whatever activities around town that are of interest to you - just ask!
INNSIDER TIP: A little bird told me that the Tennis Courts at 18th. Street are the least busy.
