If you’re looking to find people to play with, then a Tennis Club is a good start, or otherwise go to Cyprus Tennis on Facebook where you can meet local players or people planning on visiting the island. There are a number of Tennis Clubs around Cyprus and below Cyprus Tennis has listed them with some comments. We will be adding further information later, such as membership information. We would welcome others contributions.

There is a strong junior membership, around 100 and also a fair number of adults, primarily men.
Aphrodite Hills Tennis Academy, near Kouklia
Tel: 26 828122
Aphrodite Hills has just become an Annabel Croft Tennis Academy and has 9 flood lit courts, comprising 5 hard courts and 4 clay.
Wednesday evenings at 7pm is social tennis, where anyone can come and play for a couple of hours for around €10, or free for members. The coaches split the people who come into doubles, or singles games and every 20 minutes everyone is rotated so you don’t play with the same person twice. There is an onsite clubhouse & small bar, where sometimes live music is played. Afterwards, everyone goes to the pub on the resort.
Membership information is available on the website.
The standard of coaching is very high, with 3 on-site coaches.
