Shaw Park Tennis Center

Frontenac Racquet ClubClayton Parks and Recreation has partnered with Frontenac Racquet Club to manage and provide high quality programming at Shaw Park Tennis Center.  This partnership earned the award of 2014 Facility of the Year by the Missouri Valley section of the USTA.

Shaw Park Tennis Center has 10 hard courts, 9 with lights, which are available to the public year round.  Court lights are push button, player operated (for 30 min.), and are available until the park closes at 11:00 pm.  Shaded seating is available on the patio as well as between the banks of courts. An air conditioned pro shop provides relief from the heat during the summer hours of operation.
