Discover the Best Tennis Communities
The best place to find the best gated tennis communities is to flock to where the players are: see how many leagues are in the area. The southeastern states are well-known tennis spots—anywhere from North Carolina to Florida. Charleston, South Carolina, for instance, has 600 courts in the city alone. If you’re thinking about making tennis a part of your daily or weekly like, a tennis community might be a great retirement option for you.
Why retire in a tennis community?
When you’re looking at retirement communities, many people think: golf! But that’s not everyone’s preferred sport—and sometimes the golf atmosphere isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. If that’s the case for you, a tennis community could be a great option. They’re still gated communities that are typically located in mild and warmer climates with plenty of sunshine, and they’re filled with active neighbors who enjoy getting outside. One key difference can be that in a tennis community, the atmosphere is more casual.
What are the benefits of tennis communities?
As a tennis player you already know the benefits of living in a community where that’s the main focus: whenever you want to play, all you need to do is grab your racket and head out your front door.
- Tennis all the time: Play anytime, any day when you live in a tennis community. Plus, you’re surrounded by people who share a love for the sport, so you know you’re in good company. Professional instructors will help you improve your game.
- All skill levels welcome: Whether you’re a lifelong player or just picking up a racket, tennis communities are filled with competitors and singles and doubles partners of every experience level, not just pros.
- Active lifestyle: When you’re steps away from a tennis court, staying active is a no brainer, no matter if you’re a laidback doubles type or a more intense singles player.
- Amenities: Tennis communities tend to have amenities not limited to tennis courts, too. Pools are great for taking a dip after a match. Fitness clubs often accompany the courts, so you can train and work different muscles to stay in top shape.
- Warm weather: Plus, tennis communities tend to be in locales with mild to warm weather, so you can walk the neighborhood and get outside year-round.
- Well-kept grounds: You know the court has to be well-maintained year-round, so tennis communities often have beautiful landscaping across the entire area, not just the courts.
- Adult leagues and organized tournaments: Keep your healthy streak of competition going by joining an adult league in a tennis community. When the organization is done for you, all you have to do is show up and hit some balls.

Carolina Colours brings to life the very best of small Carolina towns-past, present and future. A mere 30 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, the waters of the Trent and Neuse Rivers converge to surround the vibrant waterfront town of New Bern, NC. Community amenities include the 25+-acre Carolina Lake, a Harris Teeter grocery, parks, trails and sidewalks, an Activity Campus with golf, fitness, tennis, swimming, pickleball and-for those quiet moments-rocking chairs.
Located in New Bern, NC, perhaps North Carolina’s most desired small town retirement destination for the past 25 years, CAROLINA COLOURS offers a variety of living environments and lifestyle choices. While typical homesites are of a size that many modern communities consider over sized, these half acre and larger sites have proven popular and have allowed numerous custom homes to be constructed, giving the core of the community an eclectic but attractive architectural composition, with trees abundant.
With quality custom builders ready to help you design and build on any homesite you purchase and with three regional/national builders constructing dozens of homes for sale that will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2022, your choices of location within the community are varied. Carolina Colours Realty, located on-site, sells only new and resale properties within Carolina Colours and is staffed with agents that know all there is to know about the many properties and activities within the community and the New Bern area. In this period of high inflation, Carolina Colours still provides one of the best values in the coastal plain of North Carolina for those that want an attractive, planned community with numerous amenities and activities to fit any lifestyle. And for golfers, the Carolina Colours course is widely considered the premier layout in the region.
The Carolina Colours Golf Course has been very well received. The course is considered by many one of the most attractive and fairest tests of golf in the region, with six teeing alternatives allowing players from scratch golfers to beginners the proper challenge, with sufficient variety for those that play four times a week. Unlike many new courses that create a setting, the Carolina Colours course, designed by Bill Love, the long time chairman of the environmental committee of the National Association of Golf Course Architects, fits into a wooded, rolling landscape as though it belongs. Even non-golfers love to ride or walk its paths.
What sets Carolina Colours apart, however, is its incredible sense of community. From Friday night gatherings for drink and food at the Pavilion, the 16,000-square-foot community clubhouse, to seemingly endless scheduled activities, both active and passive, neighborhood gatherings, walking and biking, organized trips and more, the community welcomes newcomers with a smile and an open invitation to join with others as frequently as one desires.
New Bern, North Carolina’s first capital city, has its historical districts and quaint shopping areas right downtown, where the Neuse and Trent rivers converge, giving many an Annapolis feel. With abundant local marinas and the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean only about 30 miles away, water activities abound. And with a commercial airport and close proximity to major highways, New Bern is easy to get to. Once there, the quality of medical care and the numerous regional cultural and festival type events allows for a life that can be as active or inactive as suits any chosen lifestyle.
