    Tennis (Multi Pass activity)

    Do you want to let off some steam? Take advantage of the two tennis courts (one is a floodlit resin court) available in Abondance. They are located at the entrance to the village at the Plaine d’Auffaz.

    Court rental costs €10 per hour. You can also subscribe to a membership. Equipment is available to rent.
    Opening times will change if the weather is very hot.
    The resin floodliit court is available upon request.

    Remember this activity is included in the Portes du Soleil Multi Pass, in which case you can take advantage of the tennis courts for free once you have this Pass!
