WWRFC Adult Tennis Lessons

Adult Tennis Programs

Competitive Adult Play

We offer competitive in-house and traveling leagues to provide members with the opportunity to compete against other players throughout the year. Our teams have won local, regional and national championship titles. 


We have Northeast Ohio's largest adult league club with 75+ USTA teams every year. We host a sanctioned NTRP tournament in the fall. Every year, our adult players from all NTRP levels, compete in the Cleveland Challenge, which is made up for a field of our club champions. 

Play is based on the NTRP so you play against players of similar ability - from beginner to more advanced players. Teams have the opportunity to advance from local play to USTA league national championship events. Initially, a player without a rating can self-rate from 2.5 to 5.0 levels.


Members have the opportunity to participate in non-USTA Interclub Leagues from September to April. Members play in both the Northcoast Interclub League and Akron Interclub League. 

Start/Re-Start Program 

We have a structured program called Start/Re-Start for club members and non-members to try tennis for the first time or to start tennis after an extended absence. This program offers adults, 18 years and older, the opportunity to learn from our tennis staff and use our facility at a discounted rate. This class is a 4-step process which graduates you to a USTA team.
