Tennis & Details
The Desert Mountain Tennis Complex is truly one of the most complete and aesthetically beautiful tennis facilities in the country, offering play on all three common surfaces: hard, clay and grass. To combat the summer heat, the courts have a misting system surrounding the central covered seating area to provide our players with the utmost comfort while playing. Coupled with the gorgeous desert surroundings, it is certainly one of the most pleasurable and comfortable settings in which to play tennis.
Our Stadium Grass court is an aesthetic work of art, making a dramatic centerpiece for the entire facility. The court was designed with a full water heating system built under the court to promote ideal growing conditions for the grass. Over the years we have worked to upgrade, improve and ensure that the grass court surface is one of the finest in the world. On a trip to Desert Mountain, former World No.1, Stefan Edberg called it “the finest conditioned grass court” he had ever seen.
Clay, or what is commonly called har-tru, courts are exceedingly popular with our membership, providing a softer playing surface. The courts were developed with the HydroCourt system, building a clay tennis court on top of a controlled water reservoir. The water table underneath allows evaporation and capillary action to dispense water evenly to the playing surface, allowing for excellent conditions.
Three hard courts are comprised of a combination of cushion-based rubber inlays that provide a more forgiving, player-friendly feel. Traditionally, hard courts have been used by most leagues in the western United States so it is important to maintain three hard courts to facilitate league play.
