With tennis fever hitting Melbourne yet again with the start of the Australian Open Tennis Championships this week, we thought we’d take a look at some of the best residential tennis courts currently on the market.
As new land allotments get smaller and smaller around the country, a private full-sized backyard tennis court is becoming the ultimate luxury and status symbol in Australian property.
Residential tennis courts give their owners the opportunity to keep active all year round, enjoy the great outdoors and have a friendly game or two with family and friends.
While many Australian homes have backyard pools, fewer have tennis courts so their relative scarcity makes them very luxurious, valuable and highly sought after no matter what property they’re attached to.
If you’re feeling inspired to pick up a racquet by the world’s best players fighting it out on Rod Laver Arena this month, then one of these amazing homes may be right for you.
