The Scouting Report

Kookmin University offers four well-maintained, enclosed tennis courts.


Dirt. (but not the dirty kind)


  • There are four courts, and they are all well maintained.
  • Two of the courts are lit during the night.
  • There are seats available for spectators and an umpire seat at each court.
    • You can rent umpires from the university, but they are expensive.
  • The courts are well spaced and surrounded by a padded fence just in case you lose control of yourself after going for those wild Nadal-like shots.


  • The courts are available for public use, but students have priority.
  • The lighting schedule is not posted. (They have been seen to stay on until 11:00 pm on some nights.)
  • Kookmin University is not easily accessible by subway.

Extra Information

  • Although not a requirement, it is a good idea to know how to play tennis before playing tennis here.
