Dwight Davis Tennis Center

5620 Grand Drive St. Louis, MO 63112 | St. Louis - Forest Park | 314-361-0177

Location Description:

Looking for tennis with a bourgeois vibe at a price the proletariat can afford? Check out the Dwight Davis Tennis Center in Forest Park. This place is no free court next to a playground — you know, the one with cracks that kill your backspin and a net that sags way below regulation height. It also isn’t the snobbish country club with v-neck sweaters and tennis whites. Nope, this is where you go if you just want to play tennis, and do so on a pristine court. The center features a snack shop, locker rooms, light pro shop (racquet stringing, grips, etc.), 18 hard courts with lights and one stadium court. There are also private lessons and plenty of tennis programs for adults and children. Fees depend on the season and your age (students and seniors get discounts) but range between $5 and $20 per court. If you like DDTC, look into an annual pass. If you love the center, and find yourself in love, you can even get married there — the big white tent, stadium court and clubhouse are available for events.
