IVO HENFLING | MARCH 21, 2014
When showing property with clients a while ago, I saw a couple of tennis rackets and a basket full of tennis balls in the garage of the Grecia home for sale. We were way up in the mountains of Grecia and it didn’t need much imagination to figure out that the property didn’t have its own tennis court unless the owner liked to hit tennis balls into the valley for the fun of it.
Thanks to the owners of that property, I can give you the good news about another great amenity in Grecia: tennis courts. I always thought that the Costa Rica Tennis Club in Sabana, San Jose was the only club with decent tennis courts in the Central Valley, not counting the various country clubs like the Cariari Country Club, the Costa Rica Country Club and the Los Reyes Country Club, which are all membership clubs.
I wasn’t aware that there are quite a few expats who retired in Grecia because they play tennis, the reason for this small blog about it. For those who are looking for an active retirement, living in Grecia can be a great option. If you plan to move to Costa Rica and tennis is your sport, Grecia might possibly be a good choice.
