Located among our picturesque grounds are six state-of-the-art tennis courts. Our tennis program is led by our tennis director Dr. Phil Christman.

Due to the size of our Adult Singles League, Shady Hollow will be utilizing CourtReserve for our Singles League and will provide you the opportunity to sign-up for special activities. This will include events such as Open Drills, Margarita Mixers and more! The hard court and pickle ball reservations will still be by walk on only. This Android or iPhone app will allow you to see if courts are available at a time you’d like to play and allow those in the Singles League to have a reserved time.

Our Tennis Courts

Shady Hollow features six tennis courts: three recently resurfaced hard courts, and three clay courts with an individual hydroponic (sub-irrigation) court system for more stable footing and consistent play.
