While tennis has given way to golf as the biggest resort attraction, and many of the hotel courts have closed, there are still locations in Waikiki to get your tennis-jones on. Both sides of Waikiki are framed by tennis complexes, with Ala Moana Park containing a 12-court spread and two different sets at Kapi'olani Park. The play is free at the public courts, with open courts readily available during the day, but they tend to fill up after the sun goes down and the asphalt cools off.
