Sports

From the gyms to the swims, visitors are welcome.

As an island nation, Anguilla’s interest in sports and athleticisim is above the average.   While boat racing is our unique national sport, we have a passion for cricket, soccer, tennis, cycling, weightlifting and more.  From early in the morning, Anguillians are out and about, taking brisk walks with weights in hand, swimming the length of Rendezvous Bay, cycling the Main Road, or hitting one of Anguilla’s state-of-the-art fitness clubs.

Golf

Anguilla’s championship golf course, Temenos, has been called “The Caribbean’s answer to the 18th at Pebble Beach”, Robb Report. Opened in 2006 and designed by Greg Norman, the  7,063–yard championship course, offers dramatic elevation changes, water features on 13 holes, a Pro Shop,  and top-notch management.  Temenos takes full advantage of the island’s landscape, and nearly every hole offers unrivaled views of Anguilla’s turquoise waters.

For those eager to play the full 18 holes, we encourage you to schedule a tee time at Temenos, Anguilla’s first and only championship-level golf course.

Tennis

Many properties on Anguilla have lighted courts that are available for play.  Visitors can reserve court time at the Anguilla Tennis Academy (ATA), Blowing Point, a world-class facility that, in addition to offering courts to the public, is a non-profit organization that hosts a number of youth camps throughout the year.  The ATA’s mission is to expose Anguilla’s youth, regardless of economic status, to the lifelong sport of tennis.  Opened in 1996, the ATA has introduced over 1,200 school children to the sport.

Ronald Webster Park, located in The Valley, is home to two public tennis courts.  The Park is also the site of many of the island’s cricket matches.

Cycling

Biking is perhaps the best way to explore the island. Flat terrain, quiet side roads and one main road make it easy to get around. Bikes are available from most hotels and from a number of outfitters.
