Tennis

The tennis facilities at the Poughkeepsie Tennis Club include five red clay courts, three outdoor hard courts, and two indoor hard courts. There is plenty of court availability indoors, including seasonal reservations. Multiple tennis events are held during the year to provide a competitive opportunity and fun for players of all ages and abilities. Lessons and clinics are available at any time, structured to suit your convenience and level of play.

The outdoor courts open May 16, 2020 weather permitting and will be open from 9 am to dusk.

We also host a variety of UTR events throughout the year, so checkout our UTR page.
