When the most prestigious of all tennis championships begins on June 24 in England, eyes will turn to Wimbledon for a fortnight. One of the four “major” tennis tournaments collectively known as the Grand Slam–the Australian Open, French Open, and the US Open are the others–Wimbledon captivates a nation (and much of the world) for two weeks every summer. It’s all about stellar tennis, crisp white duds (the strict dress code enforced by the tournament), and strawberries and creme–a spectator favorite and Wimbledon’s version of the Dodger dog.
If cheering from a prime seat along Centre Court and rubbing elbows with the royal family who is typically in attendance isn’t a reality, you can always build your own championship court at home. Whether your goal is a few casual games on weekends, or you’re cultivating the next Rafael Nadal or Serena Williams (after all, prize money for each singles champion at this year’s tournament will reach a record $2.4 million!), you can expect to pay between $20,000 and $100,000 to build a court.
Or, you can buy one of these beautiful tennis court properties listed by Coldwell Banker that reflect the love of the sport from a strictly California perspective.
