Tennis has a long and rich tradition at Chautauqua. Originally introduced by co-founder Bishop John Vincent in 1878, the first lawn tennis court was set up along Chautauqua's lakefront.

Chautauqua Tennis Center

The Chautauqua Tennis Center, is located directly behind the Turner Community Center on Route 394 and boasts eight state-of-the-art, fast-dry courts. Using the patented "Hydro-Grid" system, the clay-like playing surface is kept uniformly moist by a sub-surface irrigation system. The result is a court that is consistent, gives a true bounce, is gentle on the feet and legs of players, and also drains exceptionally well, allowing for a quick return to play even after heavy rain. Two of the courts are illuminated for night play.
