Our two excellent tennis courts were first constructed in 1975. In 2007, the Club installed a new Flex Court surface which provides cushion for knees and legs, requires very little maintenance, drains rain water, and dries quickly. The annual dues are only $185, and no dues are charged for the first calendar year of a new membership.
The one-time initial membership fee for River Heights Racquet Club is normally $500. We periodically offer family memberships for $300. The Club wants to encourage more people to enjoy the two outdoor courts located in a very pleasant setting near the Lakeview Pond.
