Recommended tennis courts in Budapest

There are loves in everyone’s life that escort one everywhere, you cannot just simply put them down or leave them at home.

They are called hobbies, but in fact, they are much more than that. If it was not like that, we could put them aside at least during the holiday, but a holiday is one more option to devote time to them.

And if this beloved pastime activity is not whale hunting, but playing tennis, then we are in a winning situation in Budapest.

It is also due to the recent international success of Tímea Babos and Márton Fusovics that this sport is getting more and more popular in Hungary.

A direct consequence of that is the development of the infrastructure in this field. Therefore, we can worship this passion in worthy conditions.  

Depending on the season, we can play in covered tennis courts (made suitable for playing in winter) and open-air ones as well.

As for the surface cover, in Hungary, grassy courts are not typical, slag- and hardcover tennis courts are the most common. Let’s see some of them!
