We're #1 in the Vail Valley when it comes to tennis. We have an amazing tennis staff at the Homestead Court Club. The staff teaches private lessons, group lessons, leagues and clinics for all ages. We also offer cardio tennis two mornings per week, free tennis clinics, and three tournaments every summer. The facility is equipped with 2 indoor courts for year-round play. The Homestead Court Club also has 6 outdoor courts on the facility (4 hard courts and 2 Har-Tru). The view we have from the Har-Tru courts of the New York Mountain Range is an experience in itself.
