All seasonals run for 10 weeks with the same day and same time guaranteed each week. Call Owl Creek Tennis Center at (757) 385-2695 to book your seasonal.

Seeing Extra Lines on the Court?


QuickStartMany of you have asked why the additional lines have been added to six of our courts at Owl Creek Tennis Center. These new 60 foot, blue lines allow children age 10 and under to play on a shorter court with slower bouncing balls, allowing them to pick up playing the game more easily. In addition, the USTA passed new rules last year mandating the use of the shorter courts and slower balls for all sanctioned 10 and under events.


The goal is simple: get more children into the game and allow them to enjoy the real feel of tennis! Learn more about 10 and under tennis.

Introduce Kids to Tennis with Summer Camps! 


Tennis Camps have started, but are offered all summer long. We have both a morning outdoor camp and an afternoon indoor camp. Our camps are a fantastic way for your child to get introduced to the sport of tennis. It generally caters to those with little or no experience. Instruction of basic strokes, the structure of the court, and scoring are touched on during the week and are exercised through lots of fun drills and games.   


Check out our Summer Camp Schedule and call Owl Creek at (757) 385-2695 to register!

Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation believes all of our diverse citizens have a right to participate in community recreation and we are committed to creating equal access for everyone who may have a challenge or barrier. If you or your child require additional support, we can help. Learn more about our accommodation and inclusion services.
