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.

You’ve gotten over the awe of the dramatic and picturesque Lowcountry landscape, and you’re starting to take in your surroundings. The first thing you’re probably going to hear is laughter.

Fairfield Glade is perched high atop the Cumberland Plateau, and offers serene mountain beauty as it sits on the highest point between the Rocky and Smoky Mountains. One of the favorite features of this area is the moderate year round temperatures. The pleasant summer days and the cool summer nights can be attributed to the Cumberland Plateau’s 2,000-foot-elevation, allowing for more comfortable temperatures and much lower humidity than most areas of the south.
What to do with all the fabulous weather and beautiful scenery? Golfing, boating, fishing, hiking, walking, swimming, tennis/pickleball-the list of fun activities available is simply endless! Plus, an outdoor amphitheater and biergarten just opened to host live music, movies, food and community events – it’s a great gathering place for neighbors to come together.
The community offers multiple subdivisions with a wide range of home sizes, price ranges, and views that include mountain, lake, golf and protected woodlands. Another attribute is the incredible cost of living in Fairfield Glade – no state income tax on wages, very reasonable home prices, and extremely low property taxes and club dues.
Fairfield Glade is just 6 miles from the city limits of Crossville, a small town, but bustling with activities. Crossville’s central location on Interstate 40 has made it a hub for many outlying areas and has given rise to a booming retail environment, offering shopping, dining and entertainment choices. The community is also located right off I-40, less than an hour from Knoxville, and an hour and a half from either Nashville or Chattanooga.
“The biggest deciding factor for choosing Fairfield Glade was the people, both in the Glade and in the town. When we came to visit the first time, we had no appointment and no agenda – we just popped in and wandered around. Folks stopped us everywhere we went – Food City, the Wellness Center, Villa Pizza – and just chatted. No one was in a hurry, everyone was interested in our story, everyone had some tidbit to share. The same thing happened on our second visit, and then on every visit we made once construction started. We felt like we had become part of the community before we were actually part of the community.” Michelle and James Bayless
Fairfield Glade has 11 lakes and two marinas.
