If tennis is your game, then the University Club is the place for you!
Regardless of age or ability, our tennis program will fit your needs. With children’s tennis camps, private lessons from one of our talented Tennis Pros, adult and junior clinics, tournaments and successful competitive USTA league teams, our program is advanced enough for even the most dedicated players. A Pro Shop stocked with all the UClub gear you need, sports drinks and snacks to keep you at your best, and in-house racket stringing is the headquarters of our tennis program.
Our convenient online court reservation system makes it easy for you to plan your time on one of our eight courts in advance or stop by when the urge strikes. Open year-round, our courts always provide an opportunity for fun, fitness and friendly competition for our members!
Our tennis program includes many activities to help you get involved! Some of the activities are:
Children age 6-14 can participate in our fun camps that run all through the summer and on teacher workdays in the fall and spring. While these camps are open to the public, members of the University Club receive significant discounts for their children to participate.
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!
