Mangwon Han River Park
망원 한강 공원
In the Mangwon area of the Han River is a great outdoor tennis facility. Seven tennis courts are available for public use. Roger Federer would be proud. Andre Agassi would be angry about Korea's drug policy.
How To Get There
The tennis courts sit on the north bank of the Han River approximately half-way between Seongsan Bridge and Yanghwa Bridge. Although not particularly easily accessed by subway, the two nearest subway stops are Mangwon Station (망원역) on line 6 and Hapjeong Station (합정역) on lines 2 and 6.
Dirt. It's not as slippery as you may think. It has decent bounce. Balls bounce on it.
-Not too busy. There are beautiful Saturday afternoons when it is very easy to get court time. Rarely are all courts being used simultaneously.
-There are tennis instructors available for hire. Must book beforehand.
-The lighting schedule is not posted. They might stay on until 10 p.m. They might stay on until 10 a.m. Nobody really knows.
-Drinking fountains and toilets are nearby.
-As the courts sit along the Han River, it is well worth spending time in the area before or after playing tennis.
