With 10 Har-Tru composition clay courts, Beech Mountain is home to the high country's premier tennis facilities. Members of the active tennis community participate in a lottery system for court reservations, with the courts filling daily.
Lessons and clinics are available for all ages, and skills are demonstrated during inter-club competition. Three teaching professionals grow their program with afternoon youth clinics, tennis camps and individual lessons.
Tim Smith, Director of Tennis, built the club's developmental tennis program into one of the best in the high country. He has been with Beech Mountain Club for over a quarter century, and has been honored by the members with the construction of a stadium court, Tim Smith Stadium, with seating for over 100 spectators.
Tim's expertise, wit and personable nature draw people from North Carolina and surrounding states to the tennis program, lessons and clinics.
Beech Mountain’s tennis courts are open May through mid-October from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Tennis Shop is located in the Trillium Building, at 103 Lakeledge Road on Beech Mountain.
