Clay Tennis on Victoria’s Bear Mountain

Spectacular Bear Mountain is the home of eight outdoor red clay courts which were opened in the spring of 2017.  The facility offers coaching, social tennis and league tennis nestled high in the mountains of Vancouver Island.

Bear Mountain is a private tennis club but it does allow resort guests to play and join in on social tennis and other events.

In the Winter Months There is a Bubble Which Covers Four Clay Courts

As Well As 8 Clay Courts, Bear Mountain Also has Two Hard Courts

The North Langford Rec Centre is part of the Westin Hotel on Bear Mountain. It features two hard court tennis courts, a year round heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi, a gym and fitness centre and classes. The courts are in a mountain setting alongside the resort’s golf course and hiking trails. Visitors can drop in for a fee.

Bear Mountain is a resort and residential development just outside of Victoria BC. It is very close to the city, but at the top of a mountain it feels far away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Victoria is a popular destination for visitors from around the world.

Wells: A Destination Tennis Centre is Emerging on Vancouver Island – Tennis Alberta

The Bear Mountain Tennis Centre is a new, close, affordable destination for tennis players, right next door to Alberta. I visited the Centre last week on a trip to Victoria. The grass was green, the flowers in bloom. The Bear Mountain Resort is a 35-50 minute drive south and west of the Victoria International Airport by shuttle, depending on traffic.
