Grab a Racquet; It’s Time to Play

If tennis is your game, the Rochester Athletic Club is the premiere place to play. Between reserving a court just for fun, enjoying some friendly league competition, or taking lessons with one of our on-staff tennis professionals, we have a place for all abilities and ages.

Named a USTA Facility of the Year, the Club features 11 temperature controlled indoor courts, six outdoor clay-surfaced courts, and two outdoor hard-surfaced courts. Outdoor court usage is included with your membership, while indoor court usage requires an extra fee.

Reserve courts through the Activities Desk at (507) 287-9300 or through your Empower M.E. Member Login. If you are not set up see our Create a Member Login webpage. You can also learn more about tennis programming and court reservation details in the Tennis section of the Schedule of Activities.
