Tennis anyone? Sign up for City leagues

In Bloomington, tennis is more than a game. It’s a community. Players are competitive on the court, but off the court they make friends for life. Tennis is suitable for players of most any age. Families get into the game. The ease of social distancing is an advantage during COVID-19. Courts are busy, but playing in a league ensures
court time.

The City offers doubles leagues and a singles ladder—all with accommodating features. If you don’t have a tennis partner, Parks and Recreation staff will find one for you. If you don’t want to commit to a whole season, you can be a substitute player.

Tennis has a proud history in Bloomington. In the 1970s, the city had more courts per capita than most communities. Pro stars inspired generations of players. Today, the game still has many devoted fans. 

“The sport just grabs you and people play forever,” Tennis Coordinator Marcia Bach said. “Being a Bloomington resident, I always had my hand in tennis.”
