    Im going to Las Vegas for halloween this year and i wanted to bring my rackets with me. anybody got any suggestions for places to hit?? I dont want just a tennis court, i am looking for something special. I heard there is a huge sports store with an indoor court in the middle, is that true? or maybe a tennis court thats on top of some hotel on the strip or something. something other than just an ordinary tennis court i can find at home.

    im also down to hit with other people if anyone is interested. basically any interesting tennis site would be nice. i know andre agassi trained there, and his trophies are on display there. anyone know where??? thanks

    Try this. Just off the strip - and maybe you'll be hitting next to Andre, Darren, Gil, or Fernando...

    The trouble with Vegas, since it's in a desert, is that it's usually windy, or real hot, or cold. No wonder The Tennis Channel Open moved out of there.
    So, their new International Tennis Centre, with 8 indoor courts, sounds nice. Yeah, you could be hitting next to Agassi, Verdasco or Baghdatis, but it's either $40/hr for a court, or $40 for each player, I forget.
    Otherwise, there's the outdoor courts at the hotels---the Riviera has 3, the Hilton has 6, and Bally's has 8.
    Then there's Darling Tennis Center, with 23 outdoor courts.
    Yeah, I've heard of a few cool courts at some hotels, but I forget where they are.

    As I stated on the other recent Las Vegas thread, I would love to know if any of the more recent hotel/resorts on the Strip--those built in the last 20 years or so--have any tennis courts on site.

    Also, I have heard that the private Las Vegas Country Club has, or recently had, a grass tennis court. It wouldn't do me much good, since that is a members-only club, but I'm still curious.

    I remember hearing about some rooftop clay courts in Vegas, and I thought it was the Hilton. I'm not having any luck on their website. However, The Stirling Club has rooftop clay courts. I think it's a members club, but here is the link to call the Head Pro. Might be worth a call, I would wager you could convince her to give you a hitting lesson as a non-member, which would be worth the price just to experience the cool rooftop har-tru courts.
