Frick Park Clay Courts Tennis Club - Now in its 9th year!
Welcome to the Frick Park Clay Court Tennis Club website. Our non-profit and
volunteer-based club was founded in June 2007 to restore and revitalize the historic
red clay tennis courts in Frick Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which first opened in 1930. . Our efforts were
recognized with the 2007 Community Tennis Association of the Year Award by the USTA
Allegheny Mountain District.
The Frick Park Clay Courts are part of Citiparks Tennis, which oversees public tennis courts in over 50 of the Pittsburgh parks and playgrounds! As a recognized Community Tennis Association, FPCCTC works closely with Citiparks Director to provide quality tennis programs at all levels of play, while maintaining the unique red clay courts for area residents to enjoy.
For 2010, a new fence, with an enlarged exhibition court area, was installed and a crushed red brick top dressing was added to the existing red clay surface, as part of our ongoing Green Initiatives. All are welcome to watch and play tennis on Pittsburgh's historic red clay courts!
2015 Opening Block Party is Friday APRIL 24 !
Courts open 10 am to Dusk April 25 to May 31
9 am to Dusk June 1 through October 31
