700 Year Stadium Tennis Courts Chiang Mai Thailand

700 Year Stadium Tennis Courts Chiang Mai, Thailand. We went looking for tennis and found a world-class facility in Chiang Mai.

The 700 Years Stadium was built in honor of the city’s seventh century anniversary

It features 11 practice courts and one center court which were open 7am to 9pm.

Playing at night on lit courts when it’s cooler

Sometimes a good idea to play in the evenings because the days can be very warm in Thailand, even in the north.
There is a pro-shop there that is stocked with virtually everything you would need to play the game.

How to Get to 700 Year Stadium

You can find the courts by going down Chotana road to the new city hall.  Turn left and keep going until you cross Canal Road.  Once you’re in the sports complex, follow the signs and arrows.

What to do after playing tennis at 700 Year Stadium

Visit Wat Doi Suthep

After playing tennis we took our rented motorcycle and rode up the mountain to Doi Suthep budhist wat (temple).

The views were stunning and hill tribes people sold their traditional crafts

Crafts are sold at some spots on the way up.

The Doi Hutep wat was magnificent

Be prepared for lots of tourists at this well-known temple though.

Where We Stayed near 700 Year Stadium in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai Boutique House Hotel

We arrived there at night.  We clambered out of the songthaew(open air shared taxi) after a twelve hour train ride from Bangkok, and there it was, the Chiang Mai Boutique House, an eclectic statement of a hotel that gently represents many of the elements of this northern city, and is a backstreet refuge in this city of bars, stunning Buddhist Wats(temples), markets and Thai massage parlors.

The rooms are wrapped around a courtyard, pool and breakfast lounge area where you can watch the interesting world of Chaing Mai pass by your eyes while surround by northern Thai design.

The hotel does not have a tennis court but we rented a scooter and drove to nearby courts.

  1. It would be so much more helpful if you included PRICES in each of your tennis court descriptions. Price per hour or price per month for club membership. Thank you!

    • Because prices change constantly and vary with the season we refrain from putting pricing information into our write-ups. This way we hope to keep our information as accurate as possible.

  2. Hi there. Thank you for the article. I enjoyed reading it. I have a question. My boyfriend who is retired and an avid tennis player wanting to spend a month in Thailand. Which do you recommend for tennis, Chiang Mai or Koh Samui? He is a 4.5 and plays at least 3 to 4 times a week.

  3. Hi Mandy. They are both great and attract good players from around the world. If he wants to play some high end tennis players he might want to consider Thanypura in Phuket. Many top tennis players train there. If you want more specific info about places to play in Thailand contact us via email at info@thetennistourist.com and we can connect you to some great tennis!
