Rewarded “Facility of the Year” by North Carolina Tennis Association and the USTA.
Ole Porte is a PREMIER tennis club located just beyond North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. It is nestled in the coastal town of Swansboro, which is North Carolina’s “Friendly city by the Sea”. It was originally called White Oak Tennis Club when the doors opened in 1994, but in the fall of 2011 the club was bought by new owner Ronnie Watson. Since then the club has been transformed into a 5 star tennis facility. Ole Porte offers to its members and guests six lighted, clay tennis courts.
Enjoy observing your family and friends play tennis while you sit on one of many outdoor rocking chairs under the covered, wrap-around, Charleston-style porches that circumference the exterior of the club. Inside the club you will find complementary coffee, cookies, and fruit as well as a wide variety of snacks and beverages (including beer and wine) available to purchase. Our inviting lobby boasts a relaxing lounge area so you can “beat the heat” and watch television on the 55” LCD TV. When our club hosts matches and other events, there is a full kitchen to accommodate all types of gatherings. Both the men’s and the women’s locker room have beautiful marble shower stalls and complementary toiletries for your convenience.
