The City of Upper Arlington owns and operates the Northam Tennis Courts. The facility features Har-Tru clay courts that provide for a slower, more enjoyable game and help reduce player injury.

The 2024 tennis season opens on Sunday, May 5 and runs through Sunday, August 4. Due to the construction of a new clay court facility and park building, the 2024 tennis season will be a shorter season and with eight Har-Tru courts. Passes are on sale now, click the “Buy Pool & Tennis Pass” button below to purchase a pass.

The City also operates nine Hard Surface Courts, at Fancyburg (four), Sunny 95 (one) and Thompson (four) parks. These courts are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are FREE for public use.

We do run various tennis and Pickleball programs on these courts. Click here to view the scheduled use.
