Inwood Tennis: Much more than just Tennis
Inwood Country Club’s Tennis program is the best on Long Island. With ten Har-Tru courts, we cater to all levels of play, from beginner to advanced for men, women and children. Our tennis program is multifaceted, affording many ways to enjoy the club’s tennis facilities. These include pick-up games, club tournaments, tennis parties and inter-club competitions.
Our Head Pro, David Brent, with over 30 years of experience as a professional tennis instructor and coach, provides our members with insightful pointers and formal instruction. He is a master at running tournaments (singles and doubles) for all levels of play. Dave was named Long Island Tennis Professional of the year in 2014. He has held many National and Eastern rankings, and in 2009 & 2011 was a finalist at the USTA 55 National Grass Court Doubles Championships. Under David’s guidance, our tennis pros and staff are available for lessons and hitting, seven days a week. In season, there is a ladies clinic every Friday and a children's clinic every Saturday.
Club membership entitles you to participate in inter-club league competitions. Our team has won the championship of the Long Island Men’s Tennis League (LIMTL). This is a first for a south shore based team since the league’s inception in 1979. It’s a competitive league, vying against teams from clubs such as Crest Hollow, Shelter Rock and Piquet Lane. Inwood CC is the only South Shore Club to host teams in the LIMTL as well as the North Shore Men's Tennis League (NSMTL).
As part of your tennis membership, your family has use of the Inwood Beach Club located just minutes away in Atlantic Beach. This facility has lockers, cabanas, pools, food service and beach amenities. You don’t have to bring a thing (other than your bathing suit) to make your beach day a fun, relaxing event. You also have access to a newly renovated, state of the art health club as well as occasional use of the historic Inwood golf course.
Imagine: A morning of tennis followed by an afternoon at your private beach club; then, perhaps a barbeque. What better way to spend a lovely summer afternoon with family and friends!
