We didn’t invent tennis in Little Rock, Arkansas, but sometimes it does sort of feel that way. Founded in 1967 by community leaders and tennis enthusiasts, the Racquet Club was indeed the premier tennis facility in Little Rock as imagined by its creators. Through the years, we’ve only grown and improved and haven’t relinquished our pursuit of creating the best environment for this timeless sport. Now our facilities include eight outdoor clay courts, four outdoor hard courts and four indoor hard courts. Our offerings include year round league play (indoor and out), competitive tournaments, an excellent professional teaching staff, a storied junior tennis program and an active team tennis community.
But tennis at LRRC is less about facilities and more about competition and camaraderie. Those things may seem a bit at odds when you see two best friends arguing a questionable line call — but at the end of the day our tennis players are a big family. We play hard and make up quickly, often over a cold drink at the Player’s Grill. For more information about our tennis program, give us a shout today.
Interested in playing on a league but don’t want to make a full time commitment? Contact Amy at 225-5711 or be email at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our sub list. Subbing is a great way to get back in the game and meet some new tennis buddies, so contact us today to get started!
Joining a League
We suggest that players new to the system substitute in order to find a league that best matches their skill level. Our league coordinator, Amy Williams, will be glad to get you started. If you would like to join a league, contact her at 225-5711.
Members may reserve indoor and outdoor courts 48 hours in advance by contacting the Club. When reserving courts, a member may not reserve back to back time slots. Reserved courts will be opened to other members if no player on the reservation is present 15 minutes after the start of the reserved time. Indoor courts must be canceled three hours prior to the reserved court time to avoid being charged for the court.
There is no charge for playing outdoors. Indoor court fees are as follows:
Monday – Friday, before 6:00 pm $24
Monday – Friday, after 6:00 pm $28
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced player, we’re here to help improve your forehand, backhand, serve, volley, overhead, and specialty shots. Have great shots but still have trouble winning? Let’s talk strategy. Whatever your needs, we’ll structure your lesson to fit them. To schedule a private or group lesson, please contact our tennis professionals directly.
