The Club

In the Fall of 2010, Elite Squad Tennis Club (ESTC) opened a totally new state-of-the-art tennis complex in South Johnson County. The club is located one block east of 146th and Metcalf in Lionsgate Marketplace, just south of Stein Mart. The 100,000 sq. ft., indoor/outdoor facility is the first dedicated tennis complex built in the Kansas City area within the last 20 years. Among the many features are a 3,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, lighted outdoor courts, spacious lounge area, men’s and women’s locker rooms and a pro shop. Every effort has been made, from the towels to the furniture as well as the flat screen TVs, to make the club a destination that members will genuinely enjoy. ESTC is also equipped with sophisticated match analysis capabilities. Ball machines add another amenity for members to enjoy.  ESTC wants each of our members to feel as though their club is a home away from home. To this end, ESTC has added a 3,000+ square foot outdoor living space equipped with flat screen TVs, table tennis, as well as an abundance of shaded seating. This spacious area will be a true destination point.

The members-only club is open year round for leagues, reserved and open court time, tournaments, plus various special events. Superior programming and instruction is available from a select team of highly-qualified professionals including Kerlin Butchee, Director of Tennis, and Mike Wolf, Director of High Performance.

“The opening of Elite Squad Tennis Club is the culmination of a longtime dream of ours.  We truly believe this complex offers an unparalleled tennis experience for enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. We are thrilled to be involved in bringing a contemporary tennis destination to Kansas City. Special attention was given to creating a club that provides everything players need to enjoy their tennis and achieve their goals.  Whether you are a beginning level junior or adult, a seasoned amateur or rising star, we are confident that our development programs will take your game to the next level.”
