Tennis is home to some of the world’s best sporting venues. Let’s dive in and take a look at the five best tennis stadiums that the sport has to offer.

Tennis has some of the best variety of stadiums across the world. From huge stadium seating to cozy stands with picturesque backgrounds, tennis has it all. It’s incredibly difficult to narrow this list to five, but here we go. These are the five best tennis stadiums in the world!

Nitto ATP Finals - O2 Arena
London, England

The grand finale of the tennis season, O2 Area in London is host to the Nitto ATP Finals. It’s an incredible setting to finish the season with the game’s top stars battling it out in the sport’s second-largest area. It’s difficult to rank this venue simply because it isn’t solely a tennis stadium. It’s a multi-functional arena with bars and restaurants inside! That makes it difficult to rank, which is why it’s at number five. Regardless, the stunning indoor court seats an incredible 17,500 spectators for the tournament, which is second behind only Arthur Ashe Stadium (we’ll get to that one in a bit).

Monte Carlo Masters - Centre Court
Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, France

Also known as Court Rainier III, this court is the centerpiece of the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 Series. While only holding 9,000 spectators at maximum, the cozy venue has some of the most picturesque views in tennis. The rocky mountains of the Provence stand tall at one end, and the sun glistening off the beautiful Mediterranean Sea are at the other. Add to that the lodge seating on the baseline and you’ve got a pretty stunning venue to play tennis. Monte Carlo’s Centre Court will be the smallest entry on this list, but its beautiful backdrop and pure “tennis feel” is the reason why it ranks on this list instead of other stadiums that are larger. Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to tennis!
