With the recent addition of two new hard courts, Soleil Laurel Canyon’s top-notch tennis center is complete. The center features a full-time on-site tennis pro, pro shop and now eight lighted tennis courts with plenty of extras. As one of the most popular amenities at Soleil for its residents, the additional courts have been an exciting addition to the Tennis Center.
The two new courts are comprised of color-coated US Open deco surfacing, allowing residents to now play in the winter months. The addition of the courts also opens Soleil residents to the possibility of winter ALTA tennis teams. The other six courts are Har-Tru clay hydro courts. Soleil homeowners enjoy shaded pavilions as well as water coolers on the courts. The pro shop offers ball machine rental, tennis racquet restringing and regripping as well as all basic tennis accessories.“The tennis center at Soleil rivals those at elite country clubs,” said Tom Cobb, director of the tennis program at Soleil as well as the head tennis pro. “I’ve seen many nice facilities, and for a residential community, Soleil is simply the best. So many of our residents and players from visiting ALTA teams have told me that our clay courts here at Soleil are the best they’ve ever played on. Now with the addition of our two new deco surface hard courts, our tennis center here at Soleil is truly a top-notch tennis center.”
