Awarded the 2008 USTA Missouri Valley / Missouri Facility of the Year, the tennis complex gives players 10 lit courts and enough court space to hold a multi-level tournament or host numerous recreational matches alongside the other courts. The grandstand court is designed to highlight this match while allowing a great view for spectators interested in the final rounds of competitive play.
Courts are open during the office hours of the Joplin Parks and Recreation office that is located on-site. Additionally, members can enter the facility with their access code before and after these times, but within the general park hours of 7:00 am to 11:00 pm.
Several options are available for tennis players including a $5 hourly fee for court use that can be divided between the number of players or a pass card may be purchased for unlimited use. Annual pass cards are available in various divisions and prices. The family pass includes tennis play for all family members for $150 annually. The individual pass provides a person unlimited access for a year for $75. The youth pass, for individuals who are 17 and under, allows for unlimited tennis play for $40.00 annually. Reservations of courts are encouraged, although walk-ins are allowed, as long as a court is available.
