579484_410369929019007_196793097_nThe Black Hawk Tennis Club was started 45 years ago and is still Cedar Valley’s best kept secret!  In the late 60’s and early 70’s, a group of local businessmen and professionals decided to support the idea of a place where people could exercise indoors during the cold Iowa winter season.  These tennis enthusiasts funded the construction of the original Black Hawk Tennis Club.  Ground was broken in 1970 and the club was open in November of 1971.  Now, forty-five years later, it is only fitting to remind ourselves that Waterloo did not always have the luxury of indoor tennis.

The tennis facility is situated at 1005 Black Hawk Rd, just east of Ansborough Ave, in Waterloo.  This great facility boasts six indoor, climate-controlled courts, six outdoor courts and experienced USPTA and instructors who are ready to help take your game to the next level.  From junior tennis programs, to adult leagues and private lessons, the Black Hawk Tennis Club has a program available for you!  The Black Hawk Tennis Club is also home of the University of Northern Iowa woman’s tennis team and a proud supporter of UNI athletics.

In addition the facility also boasts six outdoor premium sand volleyball courts and hosts league play for all levels May-September.

    1. Mike the best way to contact us at the tennis club is 319-232-7512. Your message was hidden with a bunch of spam messages and I missed it. I apologize.


  2. I am a member of the tennis club. I didn’t pick up a racquet until I was almost fifty, but one of the club’s tennis pros taught me the basics. I was introduced to other members and was soon playing doubles. I have met many wondeful women my age over the years and sure enjoy not only playing, but the company of these women. I would say do not hesitate to join even if you have never played! It is never too late to learn. There are members playing at all levels.

  3. We recently moved to Cedar Falls and looking for a Tennis instructor for my 16 year old daughter who is a junior at High School. She was in varsity tennis at her previous school.

  5. Hello,
    Ive been looking on where to play sand volleyball for the last few months and a friend told me that you host some sand volleyball teams. I was wondering how i might be able to either participate or get on a team as i dont know enough people to form my own team.

    1. David, I just was going through the emails and somehow your message went into spam. We are just putting out information about Sand Volleyball for this spring and summer! You should check it out. We always have teams looking for players or subs.

  6. I would like some information about how I could possibly get into the High School Clinic or something. I want to get better at tennis before Tennis Season this spring. I would also like to know the cost and any other information that I might need to know. Thank you

    1. The high school clinic is only on Sunday’s for the time being. It is offered at 12-1:30pm. The cost for this class is on the Junior tennis page. If you have any other questions you can call 319-2327-7512. Thanks!
