Skyline has six clay tennis courts. Made of a material found right here in Arizona, the clay is a delight to play on during our hot spring and summer months, staying as much as thirty degrees cooler than a hard court.
This surface is a medium-speed, all-purpose court, which is much easier on joints and muscles than the more common hard court, especially for those players with “old injuries.” Four of the courts are lighted for evening play, and we have a backboard area and ball machine for practice.
The tennis office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every day.
Unique to most private clubs, Skyline country Club has a broad cross-section of players on both a competitive and social level. There are clinics, leagues, tournaments and special events geared toward all level of players, providing fun and challenging play for each ability. Each week, we also offer open play (drop-in) for men and women.
Director of Tennis Ali Colak, heads the tennis facility. Ali comes to Skyline Country Club from Desert Mountain Club where he was the head tennis professional for the past 7 years. Ali is also the Director of Tennis at the Glacier Club in Durango, CO during the summer months only. Ali was born in Izmir, Turkey and moved to the U.S. when he was eighteen years old to attend Brigham Young University in Oahu, Hawaii, where he was a NAIA collegiate player. He has been in this country for twenty eight years. While in Turkey, Ali was the Turkish Junior champion in 14-16-18- and-under age brackets, and was also a member of the Turkish Davis Cup team
During the season we strive to provide a wide variety of different events to accommodate all the needs of our membership. Our social events have become extremely popular; whether an accomplished player or a beginner, our socials provide a great opportunity for everyone to gather and have a great time. During the summer, the always- popular Tennis Camp provides juniors with a mix of tennis, golf, swimming and indoor activities. We are always looking to expand the program, adding new and exciting flavors to the menu of tennis activities.
