Summerlin tennis serves up summer programs

With more than a dozen tennis courts, seasonal leagues, youth camps and adult clinics, Summerlin master-planned community is in full swing.

Since the founding of the Summerlin Tennis Club in 1999, the community’s tennis fans can participate on a number of USA League Tennis teams with the opportunity to play in sanctioned Nevada Tennis Association tournaments.

The Summerlin Tennis Club also hosts several tennis-oriented socials, and in 2003 was recognized by the Nevada Tennis Association as the Organization of the Year for its success in attracting new players to the game.

“More than 1,000 residents of all ages and skill levels participate in the community’s tennis programs,” said Brock Wilson, recreational 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 sport is one of the community’s most popular and successful athletic programs.”

Youth tennis programs in the community include Summer Break Camp, Pee Wee Tennis for Kids and Youth Beginners. Adult clinics include Beginners for Adults, Sharpen Your Game, Adult Learn & Play and Adult Drill & Play.

All tennis programs in Summerlin are coordinated by The Summerlin Council.

In addition, the council oversees the care and maintenance of most of the community’s existing 14 lighted tennis courts located in parks throughout the community, including The Hills Park, Ridgebrook Park, Spotted Leaf Park, The Gardens Park, The Vistas Community Park and The Arbors Tennis and Play Park.

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

Additional courts are planned for The Mesa Park, a 19-acre park under construction on Town Center Drive and Mesa Park Drive.

Developed by The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc., the 22,500-acre master-planned community began to take shape in 1990.

Located along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley, it is home to more than 95,000 residents, more than 100 neighborhood and village parks and as many as 150 completed miles of the Summerlin trail system.

With 7,500 acres still to develop, including its urban core, Summerlin Centre, the community encompasses a variety of houses of worship, shopping centers, medical and cultural facilities, business parks and more than 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 low $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 low $1,000s.
