The Williams Sisters Tennis Courts and Home

Venus & Serena Can Finally Train & Play Tennis At Home!

Brand-New Never-Before-Seen Photos & Analysis of Venus & Serena Williams’ New Home Addition & Tennis Courts

How timely that injured Venus & Serena Williams have a place to train and play tennis at their home at BallenIsles in Palm Beach Gardens. The sisters’ V-shaped estate with 2 massive separate master suites finally has a finished training facility that the sisters can train at without leaving their front door. The sisters applied for permits to do an addition to their home in March of 2010. The just-completed addition is a 4,000 square foot structure with state-of-the-art facilities. The structure can be seen in these first published pictures (below) just past the gated entry on the left-hand side.The Williams sisters built their massive estate a decade ago. Besides the unique 2 master wings, the property grounds are triple guarded. BallenIsles Country Club is a manned, gated community of 1562 homes. Grand Key, where they reside, also has its own private gate. In addition, the Williams’ own home in Grand Key Estates has its own gate as well. Not even Buckingham Palace has this many gates! The addition still leaves the property with loads of parking, as the aerial shows a plethora of Range Rovers to roam about.

19 of the 22 courts are clay, which is what most of the snowbird retiree residents desire because it’s easier on the knees. Venus and Serena need to train on Har-Tru courts and the BallenIsles residents built these special courts especially for them. Both the men’s and women’s professional tennis tours see a high percentage of the hard courts that they play on built by HarTru. That is the standard in hard courts for the tennis professionals. Several years ago at the Australian Open, they experimented with the new blue color and the players found it much easier to pick up the yellow tennis ball against the blue background as opposed to the traditional green background. This is why the 2 blue courts were built, so that Venus and Serena could most accurately mimic the conditions under which they play when they are competing. As for positioning of the court in the SE quadrant, it would give more shade and therefore be cooler early in the mornings when they practice than if it were situated anywhere else.

The Two Blue Courts Are for The Williams sisters

 
The hallmark of BallenIsles is the three championship courses, Grand Clubhouse and a No. 17 ranking on the Platinum Club listing of the top 100 clubs in the U.S. John D. MacArthur, the insurance tycoon and patron of the Palm Beach Gardens area, began collaboration in 1963 with the PGA of America to build its headquarters here. Choosing a perfectly situated 1,300 acres a grand country club was designed which would boast 3 championship golf courses where PGA events would be hosted. BallenIsles now home to a clubhouse, fitness/tennis center and 33 individual neighborhoods with 1,500 condominiums, townhouses, single family homes and grand estates. The community was designed and built with the distinct air of casual elegance that can only come with expansive and generously landscaped common areas forming flowering buffers between communities and room for the majestic banyan trees which flourish in Palm Beach Gardens. Although there are 3 entrances the main entrance features the distinctive stone logo, bougainvillea draping over wooden arbors and a curving entrance of seasonal color and perennial tropical foliage. 3 entrances mean that you don’t have to wind through the entire community to exit the property and nothing in Palm Beach Gardens is more than 5 or 10 mintues away.

The so named "Crown jewel of Palm Beach Gardens,” BallenIsles offers three impeccably groomed and maintained courses and a golf pedigree that dates back to 1963 when the PGA of America contracted with John D. MacArthur to design a world-class golf facility. This pedigree extends back to 1963 and hosts a 72,000-square-foot Grand Clubhouse- the social center of the community which offers dining and entertainment amenities and a full-service pro shop. BallenIsles also features a 23-court Tennis and Fitness Center complete with pool and cabana, an extensive fitness area, aerobics room, private massage rooms, saunas, and steam rooms and a tennis pro shop. 
 
With 32 neighborhoods and prices ranging from $300,000 to $4 million, BallenIsles has a home to suite a wide variety of tastes. From villas and condos to estate homes, you’ll find beautiful views and a gracious ambience.
 
Over the last decade, BallenIsles Country Club has outpaced more than 6,000 clubs nationally in its rise in the Platinum Club Top 100 ranking list of the most highly regarded country clubs in America. Though rising in popularity and new innovations, one of Palm Beach Gardens' oldest clubs, service has been refined to a level not yet achieved in the newer clubs and the trees have matured to give BallenIsles a look that cannot be duplicated except through the passage of time.
 
“No other club in the nation exceeds BallenIsles in your club’s advances in excellence,” says John R. Sibbald, publisher of the Club Leaders Forum that conducts Platinum Club surveys every three years among club presidents and managers. “This survey, which began in 1997, is America’s only instrument by which clubs can measure themselves against others,” says Sibbald.
