“SPORT and FREE TIME in one of the most beautiful places on the island”

The Island is Capri, and the slogan that appears on all the Club’s posters, is by no means a cliché, but is merely the pleasant reality, the environment and the atmosphere that involves those who frequent it; on the playing field, one is likely to be ‘distracted’ by the beauty of its surroundings.

The Capri Sporting Club, which began its activities in the spring of 1983, is located in Anacapri, the other municipality on the island of Capri, in one of the most beautiful and evocative areas of the island, in a panoramic position overlooking the entire Gulf of Naples.

The Structure

The Sporting is the largest open-air area on the island equipped for sports, with three floodlit courts, one of which is an exclusive clay court for tennis with bleachers seating around 200, two multi-purpose synthetic grass courts for tennis, futsal, etc., and a further smaller area for gymnastic and training activities; the sports areas also include two large, well-equipped changing rooms with related facilities.

Indoor lounge with snack-bar/tea-room, T.V. with mega-screen and satellite system to follow together the most important sporting events broadcast by national and foreign networks, table tennis, table football, billiards; terraces and green areas; parking; all this completes the structure that represents the ideal “meeting point” for sportsmen and women and for all those who, while not practicing active sport, wish to spend their free time in a young and pleasant environment.


The Sporting has been the venue for prestigious events: from Nick Bollettieri’s first Italian ‘tennis clinic’ back in ’84 to the 1st Master Grand Prix Scaglia again in 1984, the exhibition of the National Military Tennis Team in 1985, the tennis tournament for professional footballers in July ’95, the Navy’s Absolute Team Tennis Championships and National Interforce Team Championships in the spring of ’96 and ’97, and the final of the Italian ‘under 16’ women’s team championship in October ’97.

Numerous tennis champions have trod the courts of the Anacapri club: Nicola Pietrangeli and Adriano Panatta, Francesco Cancellotti, Corrado Barazzutti, the English Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade, Steffi Graf and John McEnroe.

It is common to meet sportsmen and personalities, known and less known, from politics, business, culture, sport and the international jet set in tennis gear, who do not give up their favorite sport during their stay on the island.

Hotel Bella Vista

Se sei alla ricerca di un luogo dove sport, relax e divertimento confluiscono in un’unica soluzione allora non puoi non soggiornare presso l’ “Hotel Bellavista” dalla quale è possibile ammirare tutto il paesaggio sottostante fino al mare.

“Un panorama unico dato da un’incomparabile posizione”.


Just a few steps from the centre of Anacapri, on the tree-lined avenue of the provincial road which leads to the town’s tourist centre.

The public bus stop at the entrance to the Club, the taxi rank a few metres away, and the availability of its own free parking for those using a personal vehicle, make the Sporting easily accessible from anywhere on the island.


The Capri Sporting Club offers

  • the possibility of playing throughout the day until late in the evening; a telephone booking to the Club’s Front Office is sufficient;
  • for those who request it, the availability of a “setter” or partners for singles and/or doubles matches;

Tennis school

The Capri Sporting Club is home to a Tennis Training School, certified by F.I.T., which operates for the entire calendar year and which in just a few years has established itself, with the numerous successes it has achieved, as one of the most appreciated in the region.

Courses are held throughout the year; in particular, they are divided into:

  • propaedeutic courses for children 4-7 years old;
  • beginners’ courses for children 8-12 years old;
  • pre-competitive / competitive courses;
  • introductory tennis courses for adults;

Each lesson always includes a part devoted to tennis technique and one to preparatory / compensatory gymnastics.


The club has two synthetic grass futsal pitches where you can:

  • play for the whole day with a previous telephone reservation to the Club’s Front Office;
  • participate in tournaments organised throughout the year.

Tennis nella Scuola

With the intention of making available to the very young, a resource in the area, represented by its own facility and in the context of a continuity between school and extra-school, Sporting was one of the first clubs in Italy that, inspired by the “School and Sport” project between the Ministry of Public Education and the C.O.N.I., launched free courses with the necessary equipment for primary school pupils in collaboration with the Scholastic Institute.

The lessons, which always include a gymnastic-athletic preparatory part aimed at motor education, systematically and gradually integrated with game-sport activities akin to the game of tennis, are carried out according to a programme defined and shared with the heads of the Scholastic Institute.

Further Activities and Services

The facility offers other leisure activities such as:

  • Ping pong;
  • Pool table;
  • Table soccer;
  • Electronic and table games;
  • Satellite TV to follow major national and international sporting events;
  • Relaxation area, snack bar, outdoor terraces;
  • Semi-Olimpic swimming pool at 50 meters;

The versatility of the facility allows for meetings, parties, cocktails and music for any occasion.

Given the well-known and recognised appeal our island brings to the international arena, the Capri Sporting Club is an appropriate venue for holding events linked to a commercial brand, services, etc.: tournaments, exhibitions, meetings, product presentations, clothing lines, etc.

Free Wi-Fi

  • Animals – allowed if small or otherwise “quiet”;
  • Credit cards – all accepted.

If you are looking for a place where holiday and sport, relaxation and fun harmonise perfectly, then you must stay at the HOTEL BELLAVISTA, which is located in the same area as the Sporting; in a position dominating the entire Gulf of Naples, the islands of Ischia and Procida, the Gulf of Pozzuoli and then the coast of Naples and Vesuvius, are the scenery that presents itself to the admiration of guests.
