The Louisville Tennis Center is the most historic tennis facility in Kentucky. The Louisville Tennis Center is nestled between the Louisville Zoo and the Bluegrass Nature Preserve, with a 1.5-mile multipurpose track around it meandering through Joe Creason Park.

More than 25 grand slam champions have competed at the Tennis Center. Arthur Ashe, Rod Laver, Jimmy Connors, Billie Jean King and John McEnroe are just a few of the great champions we have welcomed.

The Tennis Center now has 11 of the finest clay courts in the region  completely enclosed with access through our clubhouse and locker rooms with showers. We have outdoor seating in excess of 400 that can be expanded if necessary.

The Tennis Center offers clinics, camps, leagues and lessons from May through the end of October. We have programs for all ages and skill levels. The tennis center instructional staff then moves indoors to create a year-round tennis program.

The Tennis Center is open to the public and courts can be reserved based on availability. We have an outdoor grill and picnic area for tennis participants.
