Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 11/28/14 6:30 PM


Finding the right tennis facility is important because it can provide an environment that encourages athletes to do their best. Tennis facilities can provide quality equipment, professional training, workout programs and other tennis players to learn from and support your success. If you want to advance your abilities on the court, picking the best tennis facility is therefore critical for success. So let's take a look at the marks of an excellent tennis facility.

Clean Environment

A good tennis facility should always have a clean environment for athletes to train in. Clean environments promote safe playing conditions that can prevent athletes from becoming injured while practicing. It's also a strong sign that the facility owner cares about the players who play there.

Inclusive Staff

Tennis is a sport for all ages and abilities, so it's important to ensure that the staff at a prospective facility are friendly and inclusive. Some facilities also have an elitist atmosphere that only supports athletes who are likely to become tennis stars. A superior tennis facility's staff members are happy to include new members in matches, practice sessions and training exercises, to answer questions thoughtfully and to offer friendly advice no matter your level of play.

Fair Pricing

It's not always the rule, but many times, price buys quality. One of the marks of an excellent tennis facility is that it has professional tennis players on staff. Unfortunately, these individuals can be expensive to hire. You'll also find that the nicer and more expansive the facility, the more it takes to keep it up. This means that you'll need to find a facility that charges fairly for the level of service and quality of courts, equipment, etc. it provides.

Updated Equipment

Tennis players usually have their own racket and tennis balls. But a quality tennis facility will also have this equipment available to players who need it, as well as restringing services. The latest technological advancements like rubber floors, automatic score keeping and computerized training aren't necessary to successfully train, but they can certainly be of assistance. Most important, you'll be able to tell how well a facility keeps up with the changes in the tennis world by the use of updated equipment.

Open to Answering Questions

Another one of the many marks of an excellent tennis facility is the willingness staff members have to honestly answer questions. During your facility tour, you should inquire about anything you are uncertain about. If staff members give vague answers, this is a good sign that the facility is probably trying to keep something from you. Your guide should answer questions with integrity, and you should leave feeling like you lack none of the information you need to make your decision on where to play tennis.
