WELCOME!

If we have not yet met, please stop by the tennis center and introduce yourself. I enjoy the opportunity to meet members each day. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been exploring Midland as well as the many offerings at the Tennis Center. From youth programs to tournaments, the Greater Midland Tennis Center is certainly the destination for all things tennis.

For our youngest players, we offer preschool, kindergarten, grades 1 & 2, and grades 3-5 programs. This pathway grows

the foundation of athletic movement, builds character and provides lots of fun! As players progress through our junior program, we focus on building skills and technique as children prepare for future competitive programs. Instead of letting the kids have all the fun, join in! Adult tennis programs are great way to enjoy a new sport, reconnect with an old hobby or meet new friends on the courts. Our new punch card drop-in program gives you the freedom to pick which classes fit your hectic schedule at any time! Thank you for welcoming me back to Midland! With your support, the Tennis Center staff and I are looking forward to growing tennis in the Great Lakes Bay Region. -Steve Cook Tennis Center Executive Director

YOU can play on the same courts as the pros! The Tennis Center features 16 indoor courts and 19 full-sized outdoor courts, including 4 clay courts.
