Lakewood Ranch Tennis Center // Form Your Lifestyle Around This Active Community That Thrives Around Tennis

Lakewood Ranch Tennis Center takes  community living to that next tier with a city-center surrounded around neighborhood dining, retail and everyday life essentials

Lakewood Ranch is a community within its own city limits that surpasses the preconceived notion of what everyday life should be. It just cannot be described as your basic neighborhood or community center, as it encompasses a vast location of housing, shopping, medical buildings, fitness and tennis centers, and your all-around, everyday necessities. The Tennis Center showcases 20 total courts (18 green clay, two red clay) inside of its own zip code. Instead of gazing in awe at the vast opportunities available throughout this revamped area, why not allow yourself to pinpoint your forever home?


Lakewood Ranch and its upscale tennis center distinguishes itself from other communities on the west coast of Florida in every aspect and attribute of living. Your way of life will never be quite the same after a relocation to Lakewood Ranch, a city within itself. Look left for grocery and pharmacy options and peer right for dining and shopping attractions. Affording its own school district and zip code, you’ll be completely drawn to this area of Florida because, well, you’ll never have to leave it!

Set upon over 30,000 acres and spanning over four exits off of I-75 to the community, you’ll immediately recognize that Lakewood Ranch does not boast any competition of its caliber. As the sixth biggest development in the U.S. and producing three golf courses, two beautiful pools, a 20,000 squad foot fitness center, 12 pickle ball courts, three restaurants, a gun club, croquet and bocce ball courts, and a premier tennis venue, what’s to overlook right here in Lakewood? Over 800 active tennis members are taking prime advantage of their community’s center, and they’re absolutely welcoming you with open arms to their home courts.

Membership ranges from basic usage to a complete package with access to all community amenities. With so many available options right in your backyard, it’s incredibly convenient to take part in every aspect with your friends, family and neighbors.
