Tennis Facilities

Albuquerque is home to two great public tennis facilities: Jerry Cline and Sierra Vista West.

Enjoy the sunshine, competition, and great exercise? Tennis may be your game.

Albuquerque has dozens of public tennis courts for everyone's enjoyment. Our warm weather makes Albuquerque an ideal place for a game of singles or doubles, and introductory lessons are available starting at age five through adult.

Whether you are a beginner or an old hand, make plans for some time on the court.
