Come Play at the Top New USTA Tennis Facility in The South’s Casino Capital!

August 19, 2008 03:06 PM

Are you sick of playing in the heat this summer or having to bundle up in the winter? In Tunica, Mississippi, The South’s Casino Capital, play year-round in 70 degree weather on indoor clay! Tunica National Golf and Tennis is your southern tennis indoor clay court headquarters.

Located 30 minutes south of Memphis, Tennessee, you can play tennis during the day and play table games and slots at night! Rated by USTA as a “Top New U.S. Tennis Facility,” Tunica National is the place to play in the South. Discount stay and play packages are available at www.tunicanational.com.

Tunica National’s four indoor tennis courts are the only Hydro-Grid Har-Tru indoor clay courts south of Washington, D.C. Har-Tru’s granular surface acts as a shock-absorbing cushion, allowing players to slide into their shots, preventing joint-jarring stops. One of the most impressive aspects of the technology is the sub-surface irrigation and the ability to control humidity indoors.

Tunica National also hosts USTA events throughout the year, including for the past three years, a $50,000 Pro-Challenger every May.

“We welcome individuals and groups, and we set up team tennis outings, tennis camps, lessons, and tournaments,” Keith Evans, director of tennis and a former ATP touring pro, said.

Team tennis two day retreats are the perfect way for groups to enjoy playing at Tunica National. Groups stay at one of nine world-class casino resorts, have a two hour clinic with two pros, eat lunch, and then your team will play a dual match versus another team at your level (2.5-5.0). Private lessons are also available. These packages are available year-round.

Getting to play one of the nation’s finest tennis courts is truly affordable. Call 1-866-TEE-OFF-1 today, or visit www.tunicanational.com.
