Courtside Tennis Club 
The Place for Tennis in Venice

Established in 1977, Courtside is the oldest member-operated tennis club in the Venice area. The club goes out of its way to support the tennis needs of full-time and seasonal members.

Courtside sits on a quiet 6-acre setting, just east of downtown Venice. It offers recreational and competitive tennis in a welcoming social environment, full of old Florida charm.

Matt Liverman, our full-time Tennis Director and USPTA certified Head Pro, provides lessons, clinics, and coaching for adults and juniors.

Matt also directs and teaches in our Junior Tennis Program.

The Club sponsors 11 leagues for men and women. Pick your level – fun, inter-club, regional league or USTA competition. Courtside also hosts friendly club Round Robins and competition for singles, doubles and mixed doubles teams.

Need a game? No problem. Our Porch Play coordinators can facilitate matches for players of all levels. Or perhaps you would enjoy playing in our Men’s or Women’s Doubles Evening Drop-in Program.

Courtside features:

  • 11 courts - 9 HarTru, 2 hard courts

  • Private and semi-private lessons

  • Weekly clinics

  • Pro Shop

  • 3,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with a kitchen, bathrooms with showers and a patio for entertaining

  • Free use of a ball machine

  • Backboard


While our members enjoy their tennis, they also like to stay for a cup of coffee and conversation after their match. Members also play in the Club’s Monday Mah Jongg afternoon, or take off on a kayak adventure.

Today, the club is thriving with approximately 162 full and seasonal members who volunteer their own time and expertise to keep it going strong.

Courtside offers different levels of membership - full time, seasonal, summer or evenings and weekends. If you’re in Venice for a month – or even a week - we can accommodate you.

There’s always something going on at Courtside! Please take a look at our monthly Newsletter and Calendar of Events to see how much we have to offer. We are looking forward to meeting you! For additional information, call the Courtside office at 941-485-2000.
