KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - The Ernest Grundy Tennis Center is now the newest addition to the Kearney Parks and Recreation Department.

The 62,000- square-foot facility that features six indoor courts with mezzanine spectator seating opened its doors to the public on Monday, May 9.

It is the home of the UNK Women’s Tennis Team and Kearney Park and Recreation Offices.

This new facility will provide year-round tennis access to, first and foremost, the public. But will also serve for practice and match sites for UNK as well as a contingency site for High School Tennis in Kearney.

Kearney Park and Recreation will have a variety of programming for all ages and skill levels of players that will help grow the game and get the community excited and engaged about tennis.

The Tennis Center will have a small pro shop, racquet stringing services and even racquet rentals; providing users all the necessities to play.

Kearney Park and Recreation encourages all users to create an account on CourtReserve. This reservation system will enable users to be able to see what is scheduled on the courts at all times and most importantly be able to reserve a specific open court on a specific day and time. Once you have created an account on CourtReserve, a welcome email will be sent that provides more information on how to book a court.

The Ernest Grundy Tennis Center is located at 1930 University Drive.

Facility hours are Monday - Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., Friday & Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:00 - 8:00 p.m. Prices vary according to court time, but a 60-minute reservation per person with a pass is $3.00 and without a pass is $6.00.
