Volley and serve enthusiasts as well as baseline hitters have excellent choices for outdoor courts in Taos.
On the south side of town, there’s Taos Spa and Tennis Club, with four hard-surface courts and comprehensive tennis programs featuring private, semi-private and group lessons for adults and juniors. Weekly clinics also available, all managed by Director of Tennis USPTA, Tim Howell, who has over 27 years of experience working with Adult and Junior players. Tim has coached or directed over 57 USTA adult teams a year, sending many on to sectional or national championships. Consider a lesson while you’re in town.
North, nearer to the Ski Valley, is Northside Health and Fitness, offering four newly resurfaced tennis courts and pro services, plus a sweet outdoor hot tub so close to Pueblo Peak you can almost it touch.
