Welcome to Racquet Sports

Tennis has been an important part of CCIA life since "the Casino" was built in 1902. The CCIA tennis facilities consist of two Har-Tru and two hard courts (the "Lower" and "Upper" courts, respectively), and are typically open from late April until mid-October. One of the hard courts is also available for pickleball, with two courts. Rules for racquet sport play are posted online and at each set of courts. 

Each summer we have a (non-member) Senior Tennis Instructor (or "head Pro"), along with junior instructors who teach our Junior Tennis Program, as well as private lessons and clinics for adults. The club also offers events throughout the season, including our annual week-long tennis tournament and lunch-on-the-porch fundraiser.


Tennis Calendar




All tennis courts are open from 8am to 7 pm daily. Play is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis during the shoulder seasons, and must be reserved online during the summer season. The junior program has priority on the upper courts during the summer season. Courts will also be reserved for events, club matches, and the annual tournament — all of which is displayed on the reservation system.


Court use for pickleball must also be reserved online within the following timeframes: 

Summer Season:

Monday- Friday 4:00 – 5:30 pm; Saturdays and Sundays 10:00 am – Noon, 2:00 -  



Shoulder Season (Memorial Day to Club Opening, and Club Closing to Labor Day):

Monday - Friday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm;  

Saturdays and Sundays 10:00 am – Noon, 2:00 - 5:00 pm


Off Season (day after Labor Day to day before Memorial Day): 9:00am – 4:00pm


**The use of sound deadening paddles is required during the summer and shoulder seasons. These can be borrowed from the CCIA or members can bring their own according to the list of acceptable paddles that is available in the CCIA office and linked below.


The backboard is available 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. It is for tennis balls only. If someone is hitting on the backboard and players arrive to play tennis or pickleball, the players have priority use of the court.

Please respect those living in close proximity by minimizing noise levels.

Annual Tennis Tournament

The Annual Tennis Tournament is an opportunity for players of all levels to get together and enjoy some fun, competitive, and social tennis. This year's Annual Tennis Tournament will take place Sunday, July 30 thru Sunday, August 6, 2023. Whether you like to play or spectate, please join us to keep the spirit alive and tennis community thriving! Click for more details about the tournament, including signup information.


and The Tennis "Ball"

If you’ve ever come to the CCIA Tennis Tournament matches on Friday and Saturday, you are aware of our wonderful Lunch-on-the-Porch tradition. What you may not know is that it is a fundraiser for local people in need, and a great opportunity to support the larger community. This year, all proceeds from the lunch will benefit Caring for Kids, a program that addresses food insecurity (and other things) among children in Bristol and South Bristol. 

On Saturday August 5th, we will celebrate the tournament during the Tennis "Ball," from 6-9pm, with awards and a potluck dinner.
