Key West Tennis

The Key West Club has two tennis courts; we recently regraded and resurfaced them to address maintenance issues and to improve the quality of play. From 6/12 to 7/28, the Junior Tennis Team will be using both courts for practices from approximately 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

2017 Junior Tennis Program

Key West's Junior Tennis Team competes in the Jefferson Junior Tennis League every summer, playing matches against other Charlottesville-area club teams. The tennis team practices four mornings a week (M/T/W/F) at the Key West courts, with (optional) matches on Thursday afternoons. Practices are coordinated with the swim team practices so that children can participate in both programs if they wish. The 2017 season will begin on June 12 and run through July 28.
