Summerlin residents go for tennis

Summerlin residents are enrolled in the community’s tennis clinics scheduled this fall at The Arbors Tennis & Play Park, considered Summerlin’s official tennis headquarters.

Nearly a dozen clinics, designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels, are available to residents and are offered by the community’s long-time tennis professional and Summerlin tennis director, Gordon Hammond.

Youth programs include Pee Wee, Youth Beginners and Junior Beginners, while adult clinics include Round Robin Doubles, Beginners, Sharpen Your Game and Learn & Play Mornings.

The Summerlin tennis program has flourished throughout the years, according to Brock Wilson, recreation supervisor for The Summerlin Council, the nonprofit arm of the Summerlin Community Association dedicated to enriching the community’s social, educational and recreational offerings.

“The growing number of open play courts located throughout Summerlin has more than doubled during the last decade to accommodate the sport’s popularity in the community,” he said about Summerlin’s nearly two dozen outdoor courts.

Home of the Summerlin Tennis Club, The Arbors Tennis & Play Park features five lighted courts, including one stadium court that accommodates spectators during tournament play.

Formed in 1999, the Summerlin Tennis Club offers members opportunities to participate on USA League Tennis teams as well as sanctioned Nevada Tennis Association tournaments. The club also hosts several tennis-oriented socials, which have been successful in attracting new players to the game.

All tennis programs in Summerlin are coordinated by Gordon Hammond along with The Summerlin Council.

In addition, the council oversees the care and maintenance of most of the community’s existing lighted tennis courts located at The Hills Park, Ridgebrook Park, Spotted Leaf Park, The Gardens Park, The Vistas Community Park and The Arbors Tennis and Play Park. Additional courts are under construction at The Mesa Park, a 19-acre park scheduled to open this fall.

Developed by The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc., Summerlin began to develop in 1990.

Located along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley, the master-planned community encompasses 22,500 acres with about 9,000 acres still remaining to accommodate future growth within the master plan, including the community’s urban core of Summerlin Centre.

The community is home to more than 95,000 residents who enjoy an unparalleled list of amenities. These include more than 100 neighborhood and village parks, more than 150 completed miles of the Summerlin trail system, nine golf courses, a dozen houses of worship, shopping centers, medical and cultural facilities, business parks, 22 public and private schools and nearly 100 actively selling floor plans.

Homes are available in a variety of styles — from single-family homes to townhomes, condominiums and lofts — priced from the mid-$200,000s to more than $2 million.

Custom home sites in The Ridges are priced from the $500,000s.

Luxury apartment homes offer monthly rents starting from the $900s.
