Drop-In Tennis

COVID-19 protocols in place: Read our latest update.

Drop-In Tennis is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with a low impact and easy-to-pick-up sport.

You could break out a head-band and classic outfit, perfect the backhand and channel your inner Bouchard or Shapovolov. Or you can just try a new sport, get used to a racquet and bash the ball back and forth with a friend for fun! 

Drop-In Tennis offers something for all interests and levels!
