The Kallang Tennis Centre was opened as a community sports facility in March 1978. Kallang Tennis Centre is located in the south-eastern of Singapore, a short drive from the central business district area. It is adjacent to the Kallang Field and is part of the Kallang Sports Centre.
The Kallang Tennis Centre is the largest public Tennis venue and consists of 14 courts with a seating capacity of 1,219. This greatly contributes to its popularity as the ideal venue for tennis programmes and competitions, both locally and internationally. It is also the training venue for the national team and national youth teams. The Singapore Tennis Association conducts most of its tennis programs here.
A further boost to its popularity was when the Kallang Tennis Centre hosted the official matches for the inaugural Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games.
Locals use it to train as its the main hub where trainings, competitions and tournaments are held. Prices are also cheap at just $3.50 an hour during off-peak weekday times. Do note that Kallang Tennis Centre does not have much shade from the sun. So players are advised to slap on plenty of sunscreen lotion before entering the courts.
