Fairbrae has 2 recently re-surfaced, lighted tennis courts for our tennis enthusiasts. In addition we also offer a table tennis area in the clubhouse and outside next to the oak tree. We offer instruction on both sports from our Fairbrae-certified coaches. Read the Instructor Bios and contact them for your tennis or ping pong lessons.

Tennis courts are now open with a few restrictions. For the safety of all members, please review the Fairbrae Tennis Safety for Players before visiting the club to familiarize yourself with the rules and to ensure you’re able to access the reservation system. We ask while you’re on site please follow the guidance on all posted signage and limit your stay to within your reserved time so that we can remain open for tennis activity.
