At Bangkok Tennis & Squash

After the huge success Thailand's tennis sensation Paradorn Srichaphan achieved at international matches and tournaments, more and more people in Thailand seems to be picking up a racquet in hopes to become the next champion. If you feel like honing your backhand and forehand skills yourself, many major hotels usually have their own tennis court available for guests. However, if there isn't one where you're staying, there are plenty of public tennis and squash courts throughout the city; in public parks, at universities or fitness centres. Note that some places do require membership, so make sure you check with the venue first.
