Tennis

The tennis program at The Forest Club is widely recognized and highly regarded throughout Houston. Both clay and hard surface courts are available in a park-like setting.

Juan Ayala heads a professional staff that has brought the tennis program to its present level of fun and excellence. The Club sponsors both men and women’s teams, which participate in all levels of league play, including those members who play just for fun. In addition to adult programs, the Club has a well-developed junior program, which serves young children, as well as the high school player competing at the tournament level. A Summer tennis camp is offered in June. Students learn everything from stroke fundamentals to mental toughness in a constructive environment. All lessons and programs offer tennis instruction from Head Tennis Professional, Juan Ayala, former world top ten player and French Open finalist, Luis Ayala, and Duchesne Academy coach, Shirley Mendoza.
