Close-Up: The Tennis Scene In Asheville, NC
The city of Asheville, North Carolina, is filled with history and a wealth of recreational opportunities that include… tennis!
First there is the Asheville Racquet Club. The club touts itself as being “the most comprehensive tennis complex is Western North Carolina.” The club has a yearlong schedule and 46 courts, both indoor and outdoor. In addition to tennis lessons, leagues, and tournaments for adults and junior players, tennis pro Mindy Mettee offers a special program for homeschooled kids. The club also offers spa and salon services including massage for achey tennis muscles, not a bad move to consider after getting a few tennis lessons!
Of course for a cheaper alternative you can book with a PlayYourCourt tennis coach. The city’s Aston Park Tennis Center has twelve Har Tru clay courts that can be booked by both residents and nonresidents. The center offers both a resident discount and a senior discount.
The Asheville Tennis Association is an option whose mission is “One Voice For Asheville Tennis.” Relying mostly on donor contributions, this volunteer-run organization brings free or low-cost tennis events to players of all skill levels, regardless of race, gender, age, or financial background. Their goal is for all tennis lovers to feel included in the Asheville tennis community.
For those visiting Asheville, a more upscale tennis option is the Omni Grove Park Inn Tennis Center. Overnight guests can book one of three tennis courts and the inn offers both private tennis lessons and classes. Lockers, towels, rackets, and tennis balls are complimentary for overnight guests.
