The Tennis Center includes 3 hard courts and 6 clay courts for youth camps, individual and league play. Clay and hard courts are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are available as camp, league and tournament schedules allow.The courts are open from mid-May through mid-October (depending upon weather conditions).

The Center's last day of operation for the 2019 season is Saturday, Oct. 12. We look forward to serving you again, beginning May 1, 2020.
