About Us

The Washoe tennis courts are located off Moana Lane in southwest Reno. There are six well-maintained public courts including restroom facilities nestled behind the Washoe Public golf course. Reno Tennis Club, founded in 1923 in partnership with Washoe County, holds events and activities out of the Washoe courts. The club also is responsible for much of the maintenance of the courts, and most of the membership dues go for the upkeep of these courts.Message from President highlight all the ongoing efforts at the club. This partnership with the County has been a good relationship for both parties – the courts are very active with USTA events, RTC events and regular play. The club has taken seriously their part in the maintenance of the courts, and Washoe by far has the best courts in town. Tennis games are easily “picked up” by players just by showing up and getting a game with others who “hang out” at the courts. This is the only place in Reno that you can just go and get a game without knowing anyone!! Washoe can boast of friendly people, super tennis and six awesome tennis courts!!

History

The Mission Statement of the RTC is dedicated to the USTA’s mission “to promote and develop the growth of tennis.” The club has an extensive history as it was formally organized in 1928, with their headquarters at the Wingfield Park public courts in downtown Reno. Today, RTC’s home is the Washoe County Courts facility, located at 2335 West Moana Lane. Under a Memorandum of Agreement, the RTC as “Partners with the Washoe County Parks & Recreation Department” share in the responsibility for maintenance and improvements for the Washoe County six tennis courts in return for special consideration from the county in that RTC may schedule and sponsor events and activities. It has truly been a favorable partnership for both Washoe County and the Reno Tennis Club.
