Tennis

Tennis Courts

We are one of Northeast Ohio’s premier indoor and outdoor tennis clubs. Our tennis programs extend from beginner kids tennis classes to advanced adult tennis lessons. Our indoor tennis facility has 10 indoor tennis courts with indirect lighting, and 5 outdoor Har-Tru green clay courts. Our outdoor tennis area has a beautiful deck area. The courts are enclosed within the picturesque Tinkers Creek State Nature Preserve.

Adult Tennis

We offer a variety of adult social and competitive tennis programs. Placed in groups by skill level, players can focus on improving their game in lessons or on teams with players of similar ability. Whether you are starting from scratch or looking to enhance your play, there is a tennis program for you.

USTA Tennis Leagues

We have more than 75 teams that compete in USTA Leagues, where tennis players compete against other recreational tennis clubs in match play throughout Northeast Ohio. Play is based on the National Tennis Rating Program to ensure you will play against similar ability players – from beginner to more advanced players. Teams have an opportunity to advance from local play to USTA League National Championship events. Initially, a player without a rating can rate themselves at levels beginning at 2.5 to 5.0. 

Events and Tournaments

We offer a large array of: 

  • Ladies Round Robins
  • Junior Team Tennis
  • Junior Match Play Shootouts
  • Men's Tournaments
  • Midwest and National Youth tournaments

We also host five Midwest multi-level ranking tournaments. 

Tennis Staff

Our world class tennis staff is here to service all your tennis lesson needs. All tennis staff members carry the internationally recognized USPTA and/or PTR certification. Our tennis staff offers high quality tennis lessons, seven days a week. We specialize in all levels of tennis, from beginner to advanced. Our lessons are given to both members and non-members of WRRFC.

Our tennis professionals serve our members' instructional needs through a complete and progressive program for adult and youth players.  We strive to provide a wide array of leagues, lessons and tournaments.

Tennis lesson rates vary based on the tennis professional's tenure and the type of lesson. We offer private lessons, semi-private lessons, group lessons, team drills, and clinics.
