Our tennis program provides a variety of options for adults and juniors of all ability levels. Clinic programs are grouped by age and ability and cover skills such as stroke production and movement as well as singles and doubles strategy. Camps take place in the summer, during Winter Break, and Spring Break and allow players to develop skills, play games, and compete. Leagues provide players a competitive setting to play matches against similarly skilled players. Private lessons are scheduled based on player, instructor, and court availability and allow an individual to determine the content of their lesson.

The HTRC houses eight indoor and twelve outdoor tennis courts, 2,500 square feet of fitness space, two indoor turf fields, locker rooms, and the Outdoor Rental Center. The outdoor courts are named the Klotz Tennis courts, named after former Men's Tennis Coach, Don Klotz. The HTRC is also the home of the University of Iowa Men's and Women's Tennis, Women's Soccer, Women's Field Hockey, and Hawkeye Marching Band. Learn more about our great facility here!
