Portlanders have long been telling out-of-towners to stay away because it is way too rainy of a city. Spoiler alert: Portland actually has a mild climate year round, and some of the most consistently spectacular summers in the country! With summer days typically hovering between 75 and 80 degrees with perfectly sunny, blue skies and no humidity, it is a tennis player’s dream! There is an abundance of public courts, and with leagues all over town, including the city-wide World Team Tennis league, there is always someone to play with!
If you are looking for a facility with full amenities, there is a large selection of public and private tennis clubs so that you can get your tennis fix, even during the rainy season. Southwest Portland is home to the Multnomah Athletic Club, affectionately known as the MAC, and it is a breathtaking facility. Featuring world-class facilities for every nearly every sport, the MAC is the largest private indoor athletic club in the country, and is highlighted by its nine beautiful tennis courts! If you are interested in joing, however, get in line! There is a long waiting list to join, with a few lucky families gaining membership through a lottery each year.
