There are tennis courts just at the end of 62nd street in Holmes Beach. Actually the courts are just 6 homes from the Island Real Estate office. There are three public tennis courts and generally it is based on first come first serve. The fence is ample height to retain most errand tennis balls. One fabulous feature is the night lights that are activated by hitting a small button as you walk into the tennis court. The open tennis court overlooks one of several public boat docks on Anna Maria Island.
Anna Maria Island has one public basketball court located in Holmes Beach. The basketball court is located across from the tennis courts just at the end of 62nd street just East of Island Real Estate. It is a full basketball court fenced in so errand balls will remain in play. I have used the court several times and have never seen others playing on the court so having the court available is a fairly good bet.
