Castine’s Tennis Program and Instruction
The Castine Tennis program has been a mainstay summer activity since the original tennis courts were built at the original Castine Golf Club in the late nineteenth century. Since then, members young and old alike have participated in lessons and clinics offered daily from mid-June until mid-September.
Non-members are invited to enjoy the club facilities, clinics, and lessons at a limit of five times during the season. Clinics are available for all ages and skill levels. Private and semi-private lessons can be arranged daily.
There is no required dress code, although proper tennis attire and appropriate footwear is required. Court and clinic reservations, and private lessons can be made in person or by calling the tennis shop at 207-326-8844.
