Friday, August 12th, 2016 by Wanda Kaiser in Club Events / 0 Comments

IMG_3365A recent mixed doubles “Poker Tennis” round robin at Grasslands Swim & Tennis Club offered a glimpse into what makes the club such a great tennis experience. This event includes a playing card scoring system to build a poker hand so both luck and skills are required to win. Whether you want to improve your game through lessons, challenge yourself against other players, or simply enjoy the game, Grasslands Swim and Tennis Club is the perfect choice because it has something for everyone at any skill level in an exceptional tennis environment.

Resort–Style Tennis

Our USPTA tennis professional, Tomm Warneke, leads a team of certified professionals and support staff to give members a true resort-style tennis experience. What does resort-style mean?

  • Perfectly groomed courts with minimal play interruption. Our 5 hydra-clay courts (watered underground) are in use day and night but only require a mere 5 minutes of occasional maintenance to keep them in top playing condition. Our two hard-surface courts allow for surface variety and also maximum play time. Courts are open from 8 am to 10 pm every day of the week.
  • Professional-play court conditions. Our high caliber, perfectly maintained courts could host a professional tournament on a moment’s notice.
  • Court amenities that include lights, canopies, water and ice at each location.
  • Club amenities such as the junior Olympic-size pool and kids pool, and our Deckside Café which serves lunch and dinners. The Café is fully covered and has movable walls, allowing patrons to enjoy the outdoors during cooler weather.
  • USPTA certified pros to help you perfect your techniques and reach your tennis potential.

We have member play at all levels and everyone can find their competitive match. Between league play and exhibition opportunities, everyone can enjoy the sport.

Ladies’ Tennis

Ladies’ League Class meets Monday morning to prepare players for the Tuesday and Wednesday Polk County League Tennis competition. USTA League Tennis is also played in Polk County. Organized ladies’ play occurs during school months. The summer has limited organized opportunities but most players enjoy the courts year-round.

Men’s Tennis

Men’s pick-up games are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Our Men’s Nights host different levels on various evenings. Tuesday is levels 3 and 5. Wednesday is level 4 play. On Thursdays we host open nights when 8 to 10 of the best players in Polk County come out to play. This group also challenges the college scholarship men’s players to exhibition matches and we fair pretty well against these young men. We host other exhibition matches as well. Recently, the manager of a Plant City club brought some professionals over for a match, which was well attended.

After School Juniors

This program primarily consists of private lessons for school-aged children throughout the school year. Our summer program includes a lot of group play and classes.

Lessons , Instructors, and Services

We offer lessons for all levels of play and create a plan to meet each player’s personal goals. Some want to improve techniques for league play while others just want to learn the sport for exercise and fun. Regardless of your goals, our USPTA certified pros can help you reach them. The pro team is led by tennis professional Tomm Warneke, a former U.S. Open Doubles Quarter Finalist who boasts (but doesn’t really like to) wins over Andre Agassi in singles and Ivan Lendl in doubles during his ATP Tour career.

We also have a full-service Pro Shop offering the latest equipment and restringing services.

Tennis at Grasslands has something to offer every player, regardless of their current level of play. Our excellent facilities and experienced pros make Grasslands Swim and Tennis Club one of the best in Florida. Call the club to schedule a tour and learn more.
