History

Buck Hill Falls established a tennis facility with six clay tennis courts in 1913 and had attracted names like Bill Tilden, Vinnie Richards, Alice Marble, Don Budge, and Vic Seixas. In 1929, eight courts and the tennis club building were dedicated at Buck Hill, which hosted everything from club championships and intra-camp matches to dances, buffet lunches, and quickly became the community hub for entertainment. Edwin J. Faulkner was appointed the club’s first tennis professional in 1940 and he influenced tennis at Buck Hill for the next 20 years.

Today

Today, located within the Tennis Tea Complex the tennis club includes 10 tennis courts with high-quality Har-Tru surfaces, as well as an entire staff of tennis professionals available for private lessons and a pro shop offering everything from tennis clothing and balls to racket try-outs, restringing, and grip changes.

Junior Instruction 2021

Our Junior Program will follow a consistent scientifically proven structure. The 10 & Under methodology uses child development theory to determine practices regarding instructional language, behavioral management, reward systems, and age-appropriate drills and games. The priority of this methodology is for the kids to have fun while developing the necessary skills to become competitive tennis players. This system focuses on rally-based lessons, where players are never in line waiting for the tennis professional to feed balls. Players engage in rallying with each other while the tennis professionals have time to constantly give feedback and encourage players positively. Players over 10 years old will continue developing their technique and will focus on match play situations. This will allow them to develop a game style and deeper understanding of tennis strategies and competition.
