Our tennis facilities are comprised of eight lighted tennis courts, a practice wall, and two tennis pavilions. Six of the eight courts are composition and the remaining two are hard courts. Covered tennis pavilions are located next to each bank of tennis courts that offer spectacular viewing.
Our tennis program includes many activities in which you can get involved! Some of the activities are:
Children age 6-14 can participate in our fun camps that run all through the summers and on teacher work days in the fall and spring. Members of the University Club get discounts!
Group Lessons and Clinics
From our "Tennis for Dummies" Beginner Class to our Co-Ed Tennis Workouts, there is a clinic for everyone. These classes are held regularly each week for our members.
Our Tennis Director and Pros are all available for private lessons with our members.
Socials and Events
Appetizers, drinks, and tennis- what more could you want? Our fun tennis events help our members improve their play while meeting fellow tennis lovers in the Club!
Tennis League Play
We have several league teams at the University Club that are very successful. This past year, one of our men's teams competed in the State Championship!
