Summer time is always a great time to play tennis at the Lunsford Tennis courts on Elm Street in Troy.
Courts are always open to the public year-round, from sunup until the lights cut off automatically at approximately 10 p.m. daily.
When the Troy University tennis team begins practice in August, the men’s and women’s teams will practice in the morning and afternoon respectively, but even then there should be a few courts available to the general public.
Five of the courts are scheduled to be resurfaced this summer, while seven other courts have just been recently resurfaced.
It would be great to introduce tennis as a new sport to any young people, and it is the hope of Troy Parks and Recreation to soon offer youth and adult tennis leagues, as well as clinics, in coordination with Troy University.
Since opening in 2001, the 12 courts have been a source of pride for the three partners, being Troy University, Troy City Schools, and the City of Troy.
It is our hope that you and your family will visit the Lunsford Tennis Complex soon.
If you are interested in helping to form an adult or youth tennis league, please let us know!
