at our Jacksonville Tennis Club

At Club Continental’s Racquet Club we serve local tennis & pickleball players with leagues, drill clinics, events and private lessons. Experts and novice alike will enjoy the wide variety of instructional programs available.

Our facility features seven hard courts, two of which are lighted for night play. Each court is surrounded by sweet scents of blooming roses and beautiful foliage.

The Racquet Club at Club Continental truly offers a unique experience, located on the banks of the St. John’s River, in the heart of Clay County. We also provide a fully stocked Tennis and Pickleball Pro Shop with equipment, apparel, accessories and more. Our shop offers 24 hours turnaround time on stringing. 

Non Club member guests are welcome to sharpen their skills by joining one of the clinics or scheduling a private lesson with our experienced staff. The courts are also available for overnight guests and Club Members to use during non-clinic times.

Please call the Pro Shop at 904-269-6090 for more information.
