Facility

The Tennis Center houses thirteen outdoor hard courts, including one 2500-seat stadium court, the Ruthelia Buchi Indoor Tennis Center with four hard courts, and eight new 36-foot permanent courts for ages eight and under play. These eight courts are pickleball courts and are available to reserve during operating hours.

Metro Parks and the Centennial Sportsplex are committed to the new USTA rule changes for ages 10U and 8U play for kids. All 13 outdoor courts have 60-foot permanent lines for 10U play, and eight permanent 36-foot courts for 8U play.

The Tennis Center offers programs for almost any age and ability. For players looking for team or individual competitive match play, we offer tournaments and a variety of League play opportunities. Leagues include; In-house Centennial singles play, Adult USTA team, NALTA and MTTL women's singles and doubles.

We offer year-round Junior Clinics, Adult Clinics, and Private Lessons. The teaching staff teach you the techniques and tactics to improve your tennis game. Whether you are a beginning, intermediate, or an advanced player, we teach you the right tennis skills for every level of play.

USPTA and USTPR Certified Teaching Professionals advise you on anything and everything to do with the great game of tennis. We have locker rooms, a pro-shop with demo rackets, racket repair (stringing and grips), tennis balls, and a ball machine upon request. And, we can arrange a match.
