Learning a sport is never as easy as when you learn it from the pros, so it’s no wonder that The Tennis Academy has become an Alberta institution. This public facility has 10 indoor courts, and is the largest, biggest indoor court complex in Alberta. Eat, drink and play tennis seven days a week. That’s all they do there, push tennis and create aficionados on the side. They are so good that The Tennis Academy has been inducted into the Hall of Fame by Tennis Alberta.
Never too young to play
The Tennis Academy has the room for all tennis enthusiasts. There are programs for kids and beginners, lessons, and clinics for all ages. They’re open for business whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall. Whether you’re a member or non-member you can learn the backhand or maybe a little footwork. If you need a change of tennis shoes, find a pair at their pro shop, or watch a game unfold in the viewing court. And the best thing is, it’s public; just make sure you call for a reservation. The Tennis Academy prides itself in pushing tennis to the limits.
Look for the big bubble
The big air bubble is synonymous with Rico Tennis Academy. There’s a friendly and homey MVP Lounge where one can get a drink, both alcoholic or non, and some pub grub while watching TV. And they’re open all the time, even people from around the neighbourhood congregate there.
Please take note: Reservations highly recommended esp. in wintertime; open year round; Non-smoking; cell phone use ok; Wheelchair accessible
