The new Leftwich Tennis Center will be one of the nation’s premier public tennis centers.

With 24 outdoor courts and 12 indoor courts, the new Leftwich will be one of the largest tennis centers within hundreds of miles — and a first-class experience for both recreational and tournament players. The new Leftwich will be the home of the nationally prominent University of Memphis Tiger tennis teams, as well as home base for the transformative, community-building work of Tennis Memphis

The new Leftwich is a public-private partnership between the University of Memphis, the City of Memphis, Tennis Memphis, and a host of private donors whose gracious generosity is making this a reality.
