I just wanted to let you know how much my daughters (ages 14 & 16) enjoyed the opportunity to have tennis lessons this summer. Thank you for allowing them to have a "normal" summer activity while practicing reasonable social distancing procedures. They are hoping that there will be lessons offered in the fall!
Thank you again,
Tennis Fun Day
We wind up our summer youth lessons with a Summer Tennis Fun Day at Swinney Tennis Center. Enjoy a group photo from a previous Tennis Fun Day!
We have 60 tennis courts in various city parks. You are welcome to use the tennis courts when open (6 am-11 pm). However, the Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department has first priority in terms of lessons and leagues. If you would like to reserve the courts for your own use, please call Daryn Schwartz (260.427.6003).
