The Club Experience
This active and friendly club was established in 1982 to provide opportunities for residents of Cottonwood Palo Verde at Sun Lakes to participate in organized play, team play, tournament play and social events with friends and neighbors with a common interest in tennis.
Today, we have a diverse membership of over 180 players, over 50 of which are volunteers.
We are a mixed group of players consisting of USTA Level 2.0 up to and including USTA Level 4.5.
Each player is encouraged to play their best tennis through Organized Play, Social Play, Intra Club, Inter Club, Tournament and League Play.
Many players also schedule their own games with friends during Open Play.
The Club hosts free lessons on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 PM as well as mixed Doubles drop-in on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM.
In addition to tennis-related activities, we also host several social events through out the year, including: access to our Food Court during Socials and Tournaments, a Holiday Dinner Dance, 2 Dinner Meetings and an Annual Picnic.
With established quotas, IronOaks and Sun Lakes Country Club residents may also join the club if they have paid the appropriate annual fee required by the Cottonwood Palo Verde Homeowners Association.
Annual memberships run from April 1st each year to March 31st of the following year. Dues are payable in advance.
We welcome new members of any skill level from beginners through more experienced players.
