How to keep your tennis game fresh when you visit Hawaii
Tennis lovers visiting Hawaii don’t need to put their game on hold. Fans can work on their game at a Maui tennis club, go see the pros in the Hawaii Tennis Open or get pointers from world-ranked players at a Four Seasons Resort.
The Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch in Lahaina offers a place for dedicated tennis players to work out every day — at a reasonable price. Per-person costs are $10 for half a day and $15 for a full day on the courts. You can rent a racket if you don’t want to bring one from home ($2.50 a day), and take an advanced beginner or intermediate clinic for $25.
