Glenmore tennis courts and pool

Glenmore Country Club is proud to offer some of the  finest tennis courts and facilities available in Central Virginia.  Boasting nine state-of-the-art HAR-TRU® clay hydrocourts and four hard surface Deco-Turf courts, the Glenmore Tennis Center provides tennis aficionados and beginners alike ample opportunity to get out and enjoy the “sport of a lifetime.”  No matter your age or playing ability, Glenmore’s professional and friendly staff will get you out rallying in no time.

While the club’s deco-turf provides year-round play on a faster paced surface, Glenmore’s soft courts provide a pleasant opportunity to play a different kind of game with less impact on the legs and knees. During the winter months, Glenmore’s platform courts invite one to enjoy a unique and invigorating tennis game. If you have not tried this exhilarating racquet sport, you are in for a treat.  Furthermore, one need never worry about getting in a game before dark; Glenmore’s tennis facilities include high-quality lighted courts so that no match will be called on account of darkness.

Indeed, Glenmore’s Tennis Center offers year-round events for players of all ages and all levels, from private and group lessons to junior clinics, evening socials and weekend tournaments. Fun and fitness await, so get out your racquet, come down to Glenmore’s Tennis Center and serve away!

Tennis Professional

Mark Ryman, Glenmore’s Director of Tennis, joined the staff in April of 2014.  Mark is a USPTA Certified P1 Elite Professional, a Certified Cardio Tennis Instructor and an avid Platform Tennis Player.  He comes to Glenmore from the National Golf Club in Pinehurst, NC where he was the Tennis Director, and prior to that he was the Head Tennis Professional at Forsyth Country Club in Winston Salem, NC.  Mark graduated from the Professional Tennis Management program at Methodist University.  Some may remember Mark as he was an assistant tennis professional at Glenmore Country Club as well as Wintergreen from 2004 to 2006.

Mark’s enthusiasm and knowledge have lead to the growth and success of his programs with adults and junior players. He stresses the importance of fun but emphasizes that, with improved technique, the game of tennis becomes easier and more enjoyable. “Once you see players enjoy hitting a tennis ball, they can begin to really challenge themselves and enjoy the game of tennis.”

Creating a social atmosphere where people can feel welcome and improve their level of play is the hallmark of a successful tennis program.  Mark’s goal is to provide the best possible tennis experience in Central Virginia.

Tennis Clinics

The Tiny Tots program is continuing, and the children ages 4-6 have made great strides in their techniques of the game.

Other classes being offered include Junior Development and the Adult clinics.
