Tennis - The Oaks Club - A Distinguished Emerald Club with Golf, Tennis, and Fitness - Sarasota

Setting the Standard: World-Class Tennis for Players of All Skills


As southwest Florida’s preeminent tennis community, The Oaks Club has consistently received praise for its state-of-the-art tennis facilities, its wide selection of clinics, instruction and tournaments, and its first-rate staff of USPTA-certified professionals. Our facilities are consistently maintained to tournament standards, affording members the opportunity to play like a pro and get close to the action at events that draw top competitors from all over the world.

Our twelve HAR-TRU® tennis courts, including four lighted courts, were renovated in 2008, and utilize the cutting-edge HydroGrid irrigation system. This fast-drying, eco-friendly technology provides a consistent playing surface and reduces water usage and erosion. Our courts are consistently rated at the highest rating possible by the International Tennis Federation.

The Oaks Club is the esteemed host of several professional tournaments, including the USTA Women’s $50,000 Pro Circuit Event, in which acclaimed professional players from around the world compete. We are proud that our facility has been chosen three times in succession to host this celebrated tournament, which has become the biggest developmental tennis tour in the world, and a proving ground for most of the big names in U.S. tennis.

Our tennis staff is led by Tom Whitten Jr., a member of the USTA’s elite High Performance Coaching Program. Tom oversees a staff of USPTA-certified professionals who engage players of all ages and abilities in comprehensive clinics and instruction. Our Junior Tennis Program serves more than 60 young players who are ranked from beginners to tournament level. For adults, we offer a variety of ladies and men’s clinics, USTA teams, Tri-City leagues, cardio tennis and private lessons for all levels. Our pros can help tune up your game with the most advanced equipment, clothing and footwear matched to your individual needs.
