Tennis

 

We're called the Racquet Club for a good reason! Widely considered "The Best Clay Courts" in Pittsburgh, our staff works tirelessly to ensure our 8 Har Tru courts are always in top shape. Adjacent to the court sits our full-service pro shop featuring comprehensive stringing services as well as top brands such as Yonek racquets and Fila clothing. Our Director of Racquet Sports, Keith Salmon, and tennis support staff provide programs throughout the summer to engage our members.
