Las Vegas Homes with a Tennis Court
Sporting events take on a whole new level of intensity in Las Vegas. The gaming customs, a constitutional right in Las Vegas for decades (Liberace had a private gaming license), increase the desire to win way beyond bragging rights. Wagering for the lowest scorecard on a round of golf, picking the perfect trifecta on the simulcasting screens, or the knockout champ for a boxing match, all examples of how sports influences Las Vegas culture.
Then there is the fitness/leisure aspect to athletics. Golf is a well-known favorite leisure activity in the valley, as is tennis, and basketball. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is an incubator for future NBA players, with a long history of successful basketball seasons. Plus, with all the noteworthy restaurants in the area, there has to be a way to counter all those calories, and physical activity is a prime choice.
Home gyms have become a staple in Las Vegas homes. Taking that need for a workout a step further are the Las Vegas homes witha tennis court, either indoors or out. The desert climate makes for extensive opportunities to play a tennis match outside or a game of pick-up basketball. What better place to enjoy a friendly, or maybe semi-competitive round that at home.

Former UNLV and NBA player Marcus Banks is one of such celebrity residents. He built a house in The Ridges, an ultra-exclusive section of Summerlin. A regulation sized basketball court was in order for this former professional. When Mr. Banks sold his mansion, the court conveyed with the property.
