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.

Funny tennis moments to end your year!

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.

Ausralian Open Preview - Let's go down under!

If you’re looking for a break from the winter doldrums and sub-zero temperatures but can’t afford a trip to Mexico, tune into the Australian Open tennis tournament beginning January 13th. It is the season’s first grand slam event of the year and all the usual culprits will be competing. It’s summer in Australia so the weather will be hot and the competition will be rugged. The atmosphere at this tournament is one of fun with the crowds dressing to support their favorites. Due to the extreme time difference, some of the most exciting tennis played late into the night in Australia, will be on as you get ready for school or work. It’s a great way to start your day!
