DuPont Country Club Tennis Program

The DuPont Country Club boasts year round tennis for all ages and skill levels.

With 19 outdoor har-tru clay courts (10 lighted for extra long play) and 6 indoor hard courts. Our indoor courts were resurfaced in the fall of 2010 and many of our outdoor courts were renovated in the spring of 2010. In 2013 we replaced two of our clay courts with two hard courts.
Tennis is included in our Gold, Silver and Bronze memberships, but for those individuals that only want tennis, the Bronze category is the most appropriate level to choose. Unlimited Tennis can be added to Gold, Silver and Bronze memberships as well to enhance your tennis privileges and allow for peak court times during the indoor season.
