Desert Mountain Tennis
Desert Mountain has one of the finest tennis centers in the nation. There are 9 courts to choose from including grass court, clay courts and hard courts.
The Desert Mountain Tennis Center is an exceptional facility, recognized as one of the best in the nation. It is called “The Wimbledon of the West”. The Tennis Center features a beautiful stadium grass court, five state of the art clay (har-tru) courts, and three hard courts. It is very rare for a Tennis Center to offer play on all 3 court surfaces within the same facility.
|There is a wide cross-section of tennis players of every level at Desert Mountain. Throughout the year, Desert Mountain hosts a variety of tournaments and social events. Special events include the Mixed Double Social, Tennis & BBQ and the Club Championship. There are also numerous clinics, leagues and other special events designed to satisfy every level of play.|
|Grass Court – The Stadium Grass Court is an aesthetic work of art, making for a wonderful centerpiece for the entire Sonoran clubhouse. The grass court was designed with a full water heating system built under the court to provide ideal growing conditions for the grass. The grass court surface is one of the finest in the world. On a recent trip to Desert Mountain, former World No.1, Stefan Edberg proclaimed it as the ‘finest conditioned grass court’ he had seen.|
|Clay Courts – Desert Mountain has Har-Tru clay courts. They are extremely popular courts with Desert Mountain members because they provide a softer playing surface. Desert Mountain uses a Hydro Court system which is essentially a clay tennis court on top of a controlled water reservoir. The water level is completely level under the court, allowing evaporation and capillary action to provide water to the playing surface evenly. The system provides an excellent playing surface. If you haven’t played on this type of court, you must try it!|
|Hard Courts – There are three hard courts at Desert Mountain. The courts are very modern with a cushion based rubber inlay. This provides a more forgiving, player friendly feel. Traditionally, most leagues in the western half of the United States have used hard courts.|
The Tennis Facility has won numerous awards over the years, including ‘Court of the Year Award’ from Tennis Industry Magazine, and ‘Outstanding Tennis Facility Award’ from the U.S. Tennis Court & Track Builder Association.
