2017 Best Tennis Courts, Public

Newton South High School

Tennis may be the ultimate country-club sport, but there are still plenty of places to practice your backhand while you linger on waiting lists. Our favorites are the courts at Newton South, which feature recently updated surfaces and a sun shelter for spectators. With 12 courts to choose from, wait times are low, and overhead lights let you play well past sundown.
