Winter Park Tennis Center

1075 Azalea Lane, Winter Park,

The 16-court complex has been a popular tennis facility for nearly a century, and the City of Winter Park wants to ensure it sticks around for a century longer. A thorough refresh last fall bestowed the aging Winter Park Tennis Center not only with newly reconstructed hard courts and resurfaced clay courts, but also, heavens to Betsy!, an outdoor pickleball court. And the enhanced landscaping and lighting is country club-worthy, making the grounds just as appealing to spectators as they are to weekend Federers.
