Tennis

The Lawn Club is home to eight Har-tru outdoor tennis courts, two of which have spot lights for evening play. The courts are for both leisure and competitive play throughout the season.

The Lawn Club Tennis program offers private lessons, skills clinics, tennis camps and tournaments for all ages and abilities. Round robins and Club championships keep both adult and junior enthusiasts in top form. Adult players enjoy a variety of programs and activities, including mixed doubles, round robins, clinics, social tennis mixers, and pro exhibitions. Our youth tennis program includes lessons, clinics, summer camps, and a juniors tennis team which participates in inter-club matches. During the summer months, the Club converts our two platform paddle tennis courts into tennis courts that are the perfect size for our youngest players.

Our Tennis Pro Shop features the best tennis apparel on the market at excellent prices. For more information on the Club's tennis program contact Cliff Skakle, Director of Tennis at 203.787.3681 or e-mail at nhlctennis@gmail.com.
