Awarded “Facility of the Year” by the North Carolina Tennis Association and the USTA.
Welcome to Ole Porte Racquet Club! Where you can play Tennis year round on the Beautiful Crystal Coast!
Ole Porte is the PREMIER private 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”. Ole Porte offers to its members and guests tennis play and professional instruction on six soft clay hydro-grid tennis courts, four of which are lighted.
Enjoy observing your family and friends play tennis while you relax in one of many outdoor rocking chairs under the covered, wrap-around, Charleston-style porch areas that circumference the exterior of the club house. 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 and outdoor pavilion area to accommodate all types of gatherings. Both the men’s and women’s locker rooms have beautiful marble shower stalls and complementary toiletries for your convenience.

Our 20′ by 40′ pavilion is equipped with a BBQ pit, gas grill, and plenty of seating for your guests’ enjoyment!
