Parks & Recreation offers a variety of tennis programs for youth ages 5-18 and for adults. An organizational member of the United States Tennis Association, Parks & Rec offers tennis opportunities for beginner youth players through competitive Junior Team Tennis Programs and more as well as for adult players.

Our youth tennis captains and coaches are USTA Net Generation certified meaning they have completed a thorough background check through the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) and Safe Play, an online training required by USTA National for all individuals who work with junior tennis players in any capacity.

We work closely with USTA Kentucky, area Community Tennis Associations, Midway University and the Kentucky Bank Tennis Championships to provide a variety of play opportunities for youth and adults of all ages and abilities.  From camps, clinics, leagues, tournaments and more, there’s a place on the court for you at Parks & Rec!

Tennis programs are offered in late spring, summer and fall.  Check back frequently for updates!


All 6 courts have been razed and have been rebuilt with all new surfacing, fencing and the addition of lights.

This project is made possible through grant funding and the support of our local government and community!

High School players participate in the Bluegrass Tennis Association High School Interscholastic Tennis League and includes weekly practices and matches.
