Our courts are supreme.
Our tennis facility is consistently ranked among the best in Sarasota with 12 well maintained Har Tru courts of which 8 are lighted. Our members span the range from beginners to USTA 4.5 ratings, so you can always find games at your level of play. Clinics, leagues, tournaments and social play for men, women and mixed are offered throughout the week, satisfying even the most avid players. The bi-weekly Friday night mixers under the lights followed by dinner at the club are a favorite of the members. Also a favorite are the monthly professional exhibitions featuring local and nationally known players. With three full time tennis teaching professionals on staff, there are plenty of opportunities to improve your game. In addition, each summer the club provides an opportunity for members’ children and guests to participate in Junior Summer Sports Camp which combines tennis, soccer, swimming and volleyball. All activities take place on club property and the children have constant supervision.
