Accra Lawn and Tennis Club

A throwback to a bygone time, this colonial-era sports club boasts nine well-conditioned clay courts and two that are lit for night play. Old club rules still apply: white shirts are necessary, but there is more leeway for shorts. A lovely adjacent terrace makes for an ideal space for drinks after a game.
