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.

Australian Open Preview - Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oy, Oy, Oy

Novak goes for a 3 peat! Novak Djokovic is the world #1 now and he is playing for his 3rd straight Aussie Open title. I would be hard pressed to pick anyone else. Andy Murray had a spectacular summer with his wins at the US Open and the Olympics and will be Novak’s major competition. Of course you never count out 'The King', Roger Federer, and in my opinion, the best ever can still compete for the title. Surprises this year - look for Juan Martin Del Potro, Sam Querry, and Tommy Haas to do well if they can get favorable draws.
