Victoria Club


About the Tennis Courts

The Victoria Club provides its members with five professionally lighted hard tennis courts. These courts are available from sunrise to 10:00 p.m. seven days a week. The atmosphere surrounding the courts is both private and beautiful with tree top views of mature pine and eucalyptus. The facility is highlighted by a sunken center court with stadium seating on one side. Tennis members at Victoria Club enjoy many perks, including very few, if any, wait times for courts, professional tennis lessons, low guest fees and unlimited free use of the ball machine.

The Tennis Pro Shop, located a short distance from the courts, is both a central information center which specializes in expert restringing and regripping, as well as a lounge for players to get together prior to or after their matches.

The Tennis calendar allows for members to participate in leagues, tournaments, and social events on a monthly basis. Getting connected with other players is facilitated by the Club’s Pro, who is happy to set up well matched play for the members, from seasoned players to those just learning to play.
