Why Lake Oswego Is a Good Place to Celebrate National Tennis Day

There seems to be a day for everything and February 23 is National Tennis Day. Turns out it’s a sport to be celebrated here in Lake Oswego with our newly renovated Indoor Tennis Center at 2900 Diane Drive as well as three outdoor tennis court sites, two at Westlake Park (14164 Bunick Drive) and one at 1850 South Shore Blvd next to the South Shore Fire Station. In addition, you’ll find two courts at Lakeridge Middle School, six at Lakeridge High School, seven at Lake Oswego High School, and 9 indoor and 6 outdoor (four of which are lighted) at the Mountain Park Racquet Club (membership required).

The Lake Oswego Indoor Tennis Center is a four-court facility open year-round to players of all ages and ability levels with courts available every day for hourly rental at $24/hour. In addition, Parks & Recreation offers tennis lessons for ages five and up.

Adults have lots of opportunities to play including lessons, drill and play, leagues and weekly ladders. Kids also have the opportunity for both competitive and non-competitive play. AND the Lake Oswego Tennis Center, with sponsorship from the Greater Portland Tennis Council, provides the only Special Olympics tennis program in Oregon.

Other opportunities for play include Greater Portland City League and USTA league play. The Tennis Center is also the proud home of the only Special Olympics tennis program in the Pacific Northwest.

The Mountain Park Racquet and Fitness Club at 3 Botticelli Street is actually a two-for-one club membership. By joining, you also become a member of the West Hills Racquet and Fitness Club at 2200 SW Cedar Hills Boulevard in Portland. The Mountain Park facility features 9 indoor courts, 6 outdoor courts, 4 lighted outdoor courts, a spacious lobby viewing area, summer slam tournament ladies’ city league, mixed doubles nights, USTA leagues and weekly drop-in programs. The fitness side of things includes functional training equipment, certified personal trainers and group fitness classes.
