It can be hard to keep your eyes on the ball at the Biltmore Tennis Center. The ten public courts, run by the City of Coral Gables, are situated within spying distance of the historic Biltmore Hotel and the manicured lawns of its golf course. Amid the glamorous 1920s architecture, guests can feel a bit like the Great Gatsby and Daisy as they trade serves and groundstrokes. The site's hard courts are well maintained, with shaded spots for changeovers and lights for when the sun starts to set. Courts are available from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekends. Hourly rates range from $4.60 to $8 per person for Miami-Dade residents and $8 to $11 per person for nonresidents.
