Pro Shop Services

Ball Machines


Do you need a very forgiving and patient practice partner to help you hone your new strokes?  Then our Playmate or Lobster Elite ball machine is just the thing you need. 

These battery powered, ball machines are the ideal training devices because they are able to deliver a variety of shots with consistency.  There heavy top and backspin will give you “that” competitive edge to reach new heights in your game.  They both have a large ball capacity and can eject balls between 20 to 80 MPH with feeds every 2-12 seconds.  They also include a random, left to right oscillation, striking six different spots on the court. These features allows you to practice alternating forehand and backhand shots. 

Both the Playmate and Lobster Elite are available for your use at just $15 per hour and $7.50 per half hour, plus daily fee.

Racquet Stringing Service

The string tension in tennis racquets is just as important as the air pressure in car tires for good performance.  And, as with a car tire, it can be hard to notice when that string tension and resiliency have been lost over time. Generally, racquet strings should be replaced every four months (or three times per year).

The Pro Shop has a first-rate reputation for stringing tennis racquets, often with next-day service available, and it offers a variety of racquet strings and grips, kept in stock, and in many cases you can have a racquet grip changed while you wait. 

Stop by and let us help you evaluate the condition of your racquet.
Stringing Services                    $22 - $30
Stringing with Own Strings    $15 
Re-Gripping                               $10

Players Bank

Looking to play a game of tennis or racquetball but have no partner? 

The Racquet Center maintains a Players Bank list of singles or couples looking for games in both tennis and racquetball.  Stop by and take advantage of this special service.
