Tennis


Ground was broken on Carmel's redesigned Tennis Complex in August, 2011, creating an unparalleled tennis experience. With twelve immaculately maintained and perfectly oriented courts, all lit for night play, Carmel members of all ages and capabilities are exceptionally well-positioned to elevate and enjoy their tennis games. The Tennis Center, extending over 8,000 square feet, contains locker rooms, a tennis lounge, multiple viewing decks and a Pro Shop stocked with all the latest rackets and gear. The Pro Shop also offers racket stringing, re-gripping and video analysis.

Carmel recently received a “2013 USTA Outstanding Facility Award”. It’s a great honor for Carmel to be recognized as one of the country’s most outstanding tennis facilities, and since the reopening of our renovated Tennis Center in 2012, court utilization by members is up over 50%. The USTA recognizes facilities to encourage increasingly high standards for construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country. The USTA evaluated our nomination based on the following:
