Tennis

Tennis Anyone? Tennis Everyone.


The Forest Tennis center offers everything you need for your tennis game. Six expertly maintained HarTru clay courts make home in our peaceful Forest setting. Three of the six courts are lighted for your night tennis convenience. We provide a variety of activities and programs that are tailored for every player. Some of these programs include weekly clinics and doubles play, private and group lessons, league play, junior programs, round robins, tournaments and special events. Tennis players come from all over the area due to the leadership of the Tennis Director Fred Kangwa. Kangwa, a former member of the Davis Cup Team for Zambia, Africa, has been the Head Tennis Professional at The Forest for over 15 years. His extra-friendly demeanor makes the most experienced and the beginner player feel most welcome at the tennis facility.
