TENNIS

One of the top clay court tennis facilities in the country, Cooper Creek is located at 5089 Cooper Creek Parkway.  The thirty lighted courts make Cooper Creek the largest soft-court public tennis facility in the United States. 

Cooper Creek Tennis Center is dedicated to providing the citizens of Columbus with the highest quality facility and friendly efficient service at a minimal charge for court usage. We offer a safe and fun environment to promote the sport and to dispel the notion that tennis is an expensive and elitist sport
