Rochester Tennis Connection

Welcome to RTC

If you play tennis, or would like to play tennis, RTC is the place for you! We have programs for all levels and ages and are open to the public. RTC is where tennis and fun connect.

We have two locations:

Outdoor Site: The Outdoor Site (formerly known as Kutzky Tennis Center) is one of the top outdoor facilities in the state with 15 courts. The Tennis center is an ideal place for lessons, tournaments or just playing some tennis with your friends.

Indoor Site: The Indoor Site (formerly known as Rochester Indoor Tennis Club) is the only Rochester facility with Rebound-Ace court surface. This court surface is the same as used at the US Open and unlike regular cement courts, it is built with layers that provide optimum bounce and give. We have six indoor courts and they are available for play year round. In addition, we have a full-service pro shop with rackets, restringing, clothing and shoes.

In addition to membership options, we are open to the public as well.

Check out our Party Information
and host your next party at RTC!

Getting in your 10,000 steps!

Tennis is a great way to improve your fitness and get your exercise in for the day. Here is what we have discovered when testing the number of steps that a player can get in while playing.

Did you know:
1 hour of singles = 7,000 steps,
1 1/2 hour of doubles = 4,500 steps,
Live Ball Game Drills (1 1/2 hr class) = 4,700 steps
**Approximation**

Calories spent to equivalent of steps taken: This equivalent is based on the calories expended. You would burn the same number of calories in a minute of this activity as with taking this number of walking steps. This means that in one minute of tennis, you would burn about as many calories as you would if you were to take 175 steps in a minute.

Dr. Jack Groppel, Tennis Industry's Health and Wellness Advisor said: 'There is no sport that matches tennis for both its physiological and psychological benefits. Some sports are outstanding for the physical benefits they offer, and some are great for the mental benefits, but tennis serves us in all dimensions of life. You can also play tennis from a very young age to very late in life. Tennis is truly the sport for a lifetime.'
