Two of the Best Places to Play Tennis in Tucson

Playing tennis is a fun way to spend an afternoon while at the same time strengthening your muscles and improving your flexibility.

Whether you would like to challenge a friend to a match or enhance your skills through lessons, two of the best tennis destinations near our apartments in East Tucson include:

Reffkin Tennis Center

Known as the crown jewel of the southwest's public tennis facilities, the Reffkin Tennis Center opened in 1961 on the site of a former driving range. It began from humble beginnings, and today it hosts more tournaments than any other facility in the region. Visitors find 25 lighted courts, and everyone from amateurs to professional athletes are welcome.

The center also offers the most instructional programs in the city, and the lessons are taught by trained instructors who are both friendly and motivating. Choices for adults include QuickStart 1, QuickStart2, and Intermediate.

Tucson Racquet & Fitness Club

For more than thirty years, the Tucson Racquet & Fitness Club has offered the finest quality instruction in a laid-back setting. It's nestled on over twenty acres by the river, and it comes complete with tennis, pickleball, and racquetball courts. The teaching professionals have set the highest standards by which all the other programs in the southwest are measured.

The adult clinics meet the needs of every player, and choices include Intro to Tennis, Advanced Beginner, and Doubles Strategy. Private lessons are also available to those looking for individual attention specific to their goals and aspirations.

Where to Find Tennis Equipment

The Racquet Shack is the only shop in the city that specializes in racquet sports. It's owned and operated by Ron Buotte who has more than thirty years of experience, and along with tennis racquets, the selection also includes balls, shoes, and Nike shirts.

Tennis is just one of the sports you can play if you call Overlook at Pantano home. Please contact our leasing agents to arrange a showing where you can see all of our offerings firsthand.
