If the slopes are crowded or the weather is lousy, athletes head to The Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs to work on their indoor game. This tennis facility sits at the base of Mount Werner and Steamboat Ski Resort and offers 14 indoor and outdoor tennis courts, plus eight pickleball courts. The center is nationally known for its Rare Air tennis camp for juniors, but standard court rentals and lessons for adults and kids are available as well.

Former travelers – even those who came to Steamboat Springs to ski – agreed that The Tennis Center is a top-notch facility, and many praised the professional instructor for both his drill classes and private lessons. Skiers loved having an indoor facility to play a few games when the ski conditions weren't optimal, and families praised the facility for its excellent condition and friendly staff. 

The center (including its courts and pro shop) is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Courts can be reserved up to seven days in advance on the center's reservations page or by phone, but keep in mind that they cannot be booked when special events are scheduled. Tennis courts cost $26 or $38 to reserve by the hour, while the hourly rate for pickleball courts is $16. Only indoor tennis courts are available to use from October 1 to May 14. The Tennis Center can be reached via the city's free bus; complimentary on-site parking is available as well. See the property's website for more information about holiday hours and closures, special events and on-site facilities.
