Elite Squad Tennis Club (ESTC) is 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.
Additionally, the club is equipped with the latest technology, including video cameras and monitors on each court. At select times, members are able to view practices, lessons and matches online in real time. ESTC is also equipped with sophisticated match analysis capabilities. Each court has a radar gun which is always a popular feature. 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 a luxurious bar, flat screen TVs, modest-sized covered fitness area, as well as an abundance of shaded seating. This spacious area is a true destination point.
“The opening of Elite Squad Tennis Club is the culmination of a longtime dream of ours,” said the club’s President, Marc Stulz. “We truly believe this complex offers an unparalleled tennis experience for enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. We are thrilled to bring a contemporary tennis destination to Kansas City.”
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 Coach Mike Wolf, Director of High Performance and Kerlin Butchee, Director of Tennis.
“Special attention has been given to creating a club that provides everything players need to enjoy their tennis and achieve their goals,” said Mike Wolf. “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.”
