Tennis Courts:  Lake Almanor Country Club has seven tennis courts. Five courts and the tennis shop are located in Recreation Area 1, off Peninsula Drive. The other two courts are located “up the hill”, off Golf Club Road at “The Commons”. They are in a sunnier location, which is the preferred place to play during the winter months. These courts are oftentimes kept clear of snow all winter by a group of dedicated volunteers.

Tennis  Shop: The tennis shop opens for Memorial weekend, but then closes until mid-June when it stays open seven days a week through Labor Day. The Tennis Shop is headquarters for RESORT WEAR (including the newest "breathable" sportswear); TENNIS LESSONS, COURT RESERVATIONS; TENNIS GEAR; GIFTS including LACC Wine Glasses and Mugs; RECREATION EQUIPMENT.

The phone number is 530-259-3656 for reservations and information on camps, clinics, private lessons and fees including annual passes.

Tennis Shop
 

On the left Vince displays the massive bole of this beautiful and rare Monterey pine. Sit yourself on the other side of Harry (yes, this tree is called Harry) and you will be in range of the free 24/7 high-speed WiFi hot spot, and as you can see, there is a large well kept area in which to log on and stay in touch.


Snack Shop: and while you cruise the internet, enjoy something from our snack shop which offers Food, Cold Drinks, Ice Cream, Candy and more. Bag Ice is also available in the shop. Hours of operation are 8AM to 7 PM.

These are courts 1 and 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the lower level. You can and will need to reserve in advance all season long.

Upper Courts

These are courts 6 and 7 with a few of Harry's smaller cousins standing sentinel.

These courts are located just up the hill and are are favored by players for their full sun and lack of shadows in summer and particularly in winter, when snow can be more easily removed allowing these courts to be played in the off season. If we get too much snow--we just break out the snowshoes and play anyway . . . :-).

Tennis for the Younger Set

Tennis Pros

This is our tennis pro Vince Villani, your standard pro with unusually good skill with 'tweens n teens'.
Vince is flanked by his assistant pros Allysha,(r) and Brittany,(l) Mattingly who have
MAGICAL skills teaching tennis to 5,6,7, year olds.

As you can see from the smiles of these young-uns they are having fun. They are not mugging for the camera.
 They will sit on the bench waiting their turn to interact with Allysha and Brittany and still enjoying themselves.
The girls can do this with a dozen kids at a time and they will all sit and smile and wait.....;..care to try this?
As mentioned before, the girls have magic with kids.

Water Balloon Instruction

(L) This young-un is about to make contact with a water balloon, the blob just over his head.This is one of
the major hits of our young-un programs.  (R) Here's Brittany adjusting the grip for one of her charges.

Allysha

Here's Allysha showing a racket grip and position not found in any tennis instruction book.
This form is to be used when feeding balls to a wild swinging 6 year old only 10 feet away;
it's called the 'protect-a-da-nose' racket position
