They also had pool, badminton, gym and coaches and knockers. It was in a side street to the big famous street where the BTS runs. It was just by the station that has the name and location of one of the fancy shopping malls!

The monthly membership fee including free access to the courts etc was quite cheap, some 100 usd i think.
You are probably talking about RacquetClub Soi 49.
It is near the Emporium shopping center at the Prom Phong BTS stop.
They have a shuttle bus from the BTS [Soi 35] to the club every hour and sometimes twice hourly.
Yearly tennis membership is 22000Baht at present.
That is less than 2000B/month; quite inexpensive considering they have a full fitness center with trainers on staff, 2 large olympic pools, 10 or so badmitton courts and 6 squash courts, free parking and a rock climbing facility too.

There are 8 indoor tennis courts.
Very nice if it rains or is too hot in the sun.

Sorry I never saw this thread when the OP posted.
