Sport for a Lifetime

Often touted as a “sport for a lifetime,” tennis is like riding a bike—you have to keep on moving to keep your balance. However, if you haven’t played in a while, you may need a little nudge to get back on the courts. The tennis community in Eastman is ready to give you that nudge, and all the tools and opportunities that you need to get back in the swing of things. ECA’s Recreation Committee’s Tennis  Subcommittee is rolling out the welcome mat for new players this summer from Eastman and the surrounding communities.

The Tennis Subcommittee has laid out its vision:

  •  The eight har-tru courts on Draper Road teeming with activity from May to September
  • Players from nine to 90, playing and socializing under a newly constructed pavilion on Draper Road
  • Eastman’s travel teams entertaining loyal fans with “W”s against opponents in the Upper Valley Community Association Summer League
  •  A jam-packed calendar of events, lessons, clinics and fun-filled activities for players of all ages, abilities, and interest-levels offered evenings, weekdays, and weekends.

Technology changes for racquet construction have helped many beginning players get off to a quicker start and many of us to keep on playing well into our “golden” years. A typical hour of singles can burn off 400 or more calories for the average adult, and 90 minutes of doubles, the same.


NEW this year at Eastman–CARDIO tennis. A combination fitness and tennis program, Cardio tennis will be offered on Saturdays at from 8 to 9 a.m.. If you want (or need) a good workout, whether you’ve barely played the sport or are a seasoned master, Cardio tennis is for YOU!

Don’t stay on the sidelines. Get into the swing of tennis at Eastman.
