Five of the Best Tennis Courts in Houston
Other than the bevy of basketball courts, baseball parks, and football fields, Houston offers a handful of suitable playing areas for avid tennis fans. Whether one prefers a casual afternoon game, or needs an all-encompassing club membership, the city has a range of venues ideal for players of all levels. Having said that, here are some of H-Town’s best places to play tennis.
Galleria Tennis & Athletic Club
5015 Westheimer Rd., Houston, Texas 77056
Galleria Tennis & Athletic Club’s claim to fame is that it is situated near Houston’s affluent Uptown business district. Management made sure to accommodate the schedule of busy professionals who tend to play the sport as a way to cope with stress and use it as an instrument for fitness. Galleria Tennis & Athletic Club is specifically catered to corporate professionals, however it still offers a junior tennis program and a full-service pro shop.
Copperfield Racquet & Health Club
15700 Longenbough Dr., Houston, Texas 77095
As a family-owned and –operated business, Copperfield Racquet & Health Club mainly serves members in the northwest side of Houston. There are 12-lighted courts open until 10pm on weeknights. Best part about being a Copperfield Racquet & Health Club affiliate is that players – regardless of age – can attend and learn from their Quick Start program.
Westside Tennis & Fitness Club
1200 Wilcrest Dr., Houston, Texas 77042
As the former venue of the U. S. Clay Court Championships, an event Houston tennis specialists Play Your Court describes as the first and only of its kind in the country, Westside Tennis & Fitness Club owns a significant part of Houston’s sporting culture. Though it may seem quite expensive and exclusive at first, the establishment cultivates fundamental grassroots learning. Westside Tennis & Fitness Club has 27 outdoor courts and ball-machine lanes, as well as a resort-style swimming pool.
ERJCC Boniuk Family Indoor Tennis Center
5601 S Braeswood Blvd., Houston, Texas 77096
This tennis court is part of the state-of-the-art Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center in the southwest side of Houston. It is ideal for those who want to spend an afternoon practicing a variety of shots, as well as watch experienced players compete in pick-up matches. ERJCC Boniuk Family Indoor Tennis Center’s membership is open to the public, in which new members get a free 30-minute evaluation and lesson upon signing up.
Memorial Park Tennis Center
1500 Memorial Loop Dr., Houston, Texas 77007
Memorial Park Tennis Center is nestled in the middle of Houston’s best, most easily accessible recreational complex. Though it does not require membership fees or monthly dues, reservations for one of the 18-lighted courts need to be done at least a week in advance. In addition, since Houston Parks Department operates Memorial Park Tennis Center, anyone can simply ask permission to conduct tennis lessons and/or sponsored tournaments.
