North Scottsdale Tennis at Desert Highlands
Desert Highlands is known for being one of Scottsdale’s best golf communities, but it is also home to what many consider to be the top tennis facility in North Scottsdale.
The Desert Highlands Racquet Club has tennis facilities located throughout the community. The main hub is the Racquet Club located in the southwest section of Desert Highlands. Here you will find the full-service pro shop, two championship grass courts and four clay courts. Adjacent to the Racquet Club is a lovely grassy area and lake as well as a basketball court.
As you leave the Racquet Club and head northeast, you will find two more facilities, one with two grass courts and one with two clay courts (Uphill). And on the eastern side of the property, you will find a single hard court as well as double hard courts. As of late 2014, there were plans in the works for the double hard courts to be resurfaced with a new overlay.
There have been many recent improvements made to the facilities in anticipation of the high season that has just kicked off. Two pillars were removed from the Racquet Club structure to allow for better viewing of the action taking place on the clay courts. The clay courts also underwent a significant grooming and the hard courts were patched to prepare them for optimal play.
The Desert Highlands tennis program is overseen by the Eric Anderson, the Director of Tennis. Eric has established a very active and social play and event calendar for the members.
As a member, you can enjoy the seasonal Saturday BBQ at the Racquet Club, register for various clinics, play in one of the frequent Tennis Exchange opportunities with nearby clubs, enroll in a number of tournaments, help with fundraising for local college teams or simply relax and socialize at one of the many parties that are slated for the upcoming months.
Desert Highlands has also hosted and continues to host several USTA Championships, including the USTA Senior Southwest Grass Court Championships.
