Tennis in South Africa
South Africa has a rich and proud tennis history. Although the country has never produced a Grand Slam singles winner, it has produced quite a number of finalists. Players such as Wayne Ferreira and Amanda Coetzee have managed to make quite an impact on the international tennis arena.
Keen tennis players on a South African holiday will find courts at many hotels, and in most towns. Matches are held all over but tennis has nowhere near the following of soccer, rugby and cricket, and none of the major international tennis events are held here.
There are no organised tennis resorts but visitors could certainly spend a week or two with a pro at any one of a number of delightful destinations to work on their game.
