Playing lessons for athletes of all levels are available on our two clay and two hard surface tennis courts. Even if you’re just now taking up the sport, we have everything you need to get started on the right foot. Tennis is also the ideal sport to become engaged with other members and develop lifelong friendships.
When the pools open, it’s summer at The Virginian. You’ll find this to be one of the busiest spots, and a great place to spend your days. A Junior Olympic pool and children’s pool make sure there’s plenty of room for everyone. There are even swim lanes with marked area. Of course, if dodging the heat is the reason, we have the pools for you. Just ask one of our members.
