Home-Court Advantage: Amazing Tennis Homes for Sale

Syndicated — We're in the heart of the Grand Slam season, with the French Open wrapped up, Wimbledon on deck and the U.S. Open action for late summer.

With the world's greatest players testing themselves on three different surfaces - clay, grass and hardcourt - in three different cities - Paris, London and New York - it's no wonder so many amateur players are compelled to pick up tennis rackets and start swinging.

While most people are confined to playing in public parks or at tennis clubs, some people are lucky enough to own homes equipped with private courts. In honor of the Grand Slam season, we're serving up some of these spectacular tennis court-sporting homes. From ocean-side grounds to a court with a 500-seat viewing arena, all of these homes are primed for the next match.

For Sale: $32,995,000

Tennis is a centuries-old sport, so it makes sense that this Elizabethan-inspired Tudor manse includes a tennis court on its 75-plus pastoral acres. Built in 1926, Old Mill Farm's home is 15,800 square feet with 15 bedrooms, 13.5 baths. Other details included in the Greenwich home for sale are 40-foot cathedral ceilings and a walk-in fireplace.

For Sale: $9,995,000

Who knows if celebrities really ever use their tennis courts, but it sure seems as if no celebrity estate is complete without one. Take, for instance, Britney Spears' previous place. Before relocating to Thousand Oaks, Britney rented this gated, luxury mansion in Hidden Hills, paying a reported $25,000 a month. The multi-winged mansion has 19,107-square feet of living space and offered all the features to keep her two young sons entertained: Arcade, paddling pond, free-form pool and spa and ballroom.
