Montgomery TennisPlex Honored Among Best Facilities in the Nation

September 10, 2014

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has named the Montgomery TennisPlex in Germantown, one of 12 winners of its Outstanding Facility Awards Program, which recognizes excellence in the programming, construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country. The TennisPlex is the only facility to receive this honor in the state of Maryland this year.

   Prior to the opening of the Montgomery TennisPlex in 2012, the Germantown area had virtually no tennis history. In the two years since opening its doors, nearly 500 kids are playing tennis weekly in the area and nearly 400 of those kids are playing at the Plex.

   Through their outreach program, Montgomery TennisPlex offers 10 and under “Kids Clubs” at five area schools with roughly 100 students participating in before and after-school classes. With the tagline “Tennis Everyone”, Montgomery TennisPlex has no membership or guest fees meaning people of all ages and income levels can enjoy the eight year-round, air-conditioned bubbled courts and four outdoor lighted courts on a spacious 9.3 acres in beautiful 695-acre South Germantown Recreational Park.

   “Montgomery TennisPlex has embraced many of our initiatives, including youth tennis utilizing 36- and 60-foot courts, which has introduced thousands of new players to the sport each year,” said Kurt Kamperman, Chief Executive of Community Tennis for the USTA. “Outstanding tennis facilities like Montgomery TennisPlex help us grow the game at the grass-roots level, and for that reason and so much more, we are proud to recognize Montgomery TennisPlex for its ongoing impact and contribution to the sport of tennis.”

   Facilities were judged on the following criteria: Overall layout and adaptation to site, programming quality and variety, excellence of court surface and lights, accommodations for players, aesthetics, amenities, social areas, and participation in USTA programs.

   In addition to Tennis, the Montgomery TennisPlex offers fitness training for youth and adults seeking to improve athletic performance, improve general fitness and/or prevent injuries.
