The new pro shop at High Point Tennis Center is officially open for business. Stop by and browse our expanded array of merchandise and sign up for lessons or a league while you’re there.
The two-story building also features an upstairs area for events as well as a wrap-around covered patio overlooking the courts. The former pro shop will be demolished to make way for an additional tennis court.
This addition is just part of the center’s ongoing renovation project, which is the first ever in its 42-year history. The project is being completed by Pogue Construction Company and includes updated fencing, windscreens, walkways, and ground area. The new court to replace the old pro shop, as well as the new playground, is expected to be complete in January, and the entire project is expected to be complete around late February, weather permitting. The center remains open throughout construction.
Located at 421 W. Spring Creek Pkwy., High Point Park Tennis Center opened to the public in February 1978 and is maintained and operated by Plano Parks & Recreation. Eight additional lighted courts were added in 1982 thanks to grants from Texas Local Parks. Today, High Point patrons take part in a number of leagues, programs, and private lessons for children and adults on 21 lighted courts.
Programs include open play tennis and pickleball, classes, adult mixers and more. In June 2020, the center added a pickleball professional to its coaching staff in response to the sport’s local popularity. The center is also recognized as having one of the strongest junior development programs in Texas.
Head Professional Ken Sumrow, who has overseen operations at the facility since its opening, said the new 8,000 square foot shop will allow the center to better serve its growing number of patrons.
“It’s a super facility! We expect our players will love the new features such as the viewing balconies, indoor social areas, larger restrooms, and renovated courts,” he said. “We look forward to running everyday programs as well as special events in our updated facility.”
