Competitive, Recreational, & Instructional

Any Skill Set

Since our founding over 40 years ago, Beechmont Racquet & Fitness has played a leading role in the Cincinnati tennis community. We have great options for everyone of any skill set including beginner, juniors, and more advanced players. Tennis has been a prominent activity at the club since our opening. The quality, diversity, and affordability of our programs have set the standard by which other clubs are measured. Our Cincinnati tennis junior program encompasses all levels from preschool-aged children to elite tournament players. Cincinnati tennis adult programs allow adults of all skill levels to compete against other clubs in the Greater Cincinnati Indoor Tennis Association (GCITA) league. 

Our professional Cincinnati tennis staff includes current and former high school and college team coaches. All coaches have years of experience coaching and managing tennis players. They work with beginners to nationally ranked players and every level in between. We offer a wide variety of competitive, recreational, and instructional options. We have 8 tennis courts available to our members. Cost for reserving courts is $16 per hour ($8 per hour in the summer) and courts may be reserved up to 3 days in advance. You won’t find a higher quality tennis court in Cincinnati. We are ready for your next tennis match with your friends and family. We look forward to seeing you on our courts soon!
