One of our most frequently asked questions from new or prospective members is “Is tennis included with membership?” The answer is it depends. Our tennis program has so much to offer. Lessons, court rental, and the ball machines are an additional cost, but you can still take advantage of free court time in the summer!
How Much is Court Rental Usually?
Elite Sports Clubs’ tennis program is the most reputable in the state. We pride ourselves on all the offerings we provide to juniors learning the game, adults just starting out, and the most experienced players. Lessons with our renowned tennis pros come at an additional cost, and because of high demand during fall/winter, tennis court rental does as well. However, depending on how often you play and your preferred time, you could take advantage of some alternative rates we have during those seasons.
From September through May, our rates are as follows:
- Open Court Time: $25+tax per hour
- Ball Machine (add-on): $17+tax/hour
- Permanent Court Time: $40+tax/hour (prime time) or $32+tax/hour (non-prime time)
- Prime Time Hours are 4-8pm (weekdays), 9am-12pm (weekends). Billed based on the time slot for prime time and non-prime time, or a combination of both. PCT is not available to book new sessions during prime time. New PCT may be available in non-prime hours; please contact Tennis@eliteclubs.com for more information on availability.
You can book a court up to seven days in advance on the Elite Member App starting at 9pm. Visit eliteclubs.com/member-app to learn how how to use the member app & make court reservations.
When is Tennis Court Time Free?
Wisconsin weather is far from predictable. Winter can be extremely cold and summer can be sweltering at times. While we encourage you to take advantage of exercising outdoors whenever possible, sometimes the conditions aren’t suitable for tennis. Rain, wind, and extreme temperatures can take the enjoyment away from the game. Certain outdoor tennis parks in the Milwaukee area get crowded in summer. But there’s only one place our members can get exclusive access to tennis courts – right here at the clubs! Play on our temperature-controlled indoor tennis courts or on our outdoor courts if you prefer.
The exact dates of free summer court time varies from year to year, but it occurs during our summer lesson season from June-August. See our tennis brochure for the latest dates. You can also email Tennis@eliteclubs.com for the most up-to-date information.
