Tennis Information

The Holyoke Canoe Club offers one of the best outdoor tennis venues in the Pioneer Valley. We have eight well-maintained clay courts, two newly-surfaced hard courts, and a backboard area, as well as comfortable court-side seating and locker room facilities.  The hard court nets remain up during the winter for hearty members willing to brave the cold.

Our long tennis season starts in early spring and goes well into the fall, and the courts are in use from sunrise to sunset. The schedule includes tournaments and socials. Our Club pro offers private and group instruction for adults, children, and families.

Anyone interested in being on the "Racquet Sports" email list should contact Pat Roche at The racquet sports committee has some great events planned.
