Like a teenager who seems to have a smart-aleck answer for everything, Raintree Swim & Racquet Club seems to have a court for any situation. Tennis players can seek refuge from the wind or rain on four recently resurfaced indoor courts, play late into the night on one of eight lighted outdoor courts, or etch portraits of Pete Sampras's dog, Tennis Dog, into the dust of two outdoor clay courts. Throughout the summer, USPTA- and USPTR-certified tennis instructors offer private lessons, summer camps, and clinics for juniors and adults. When players aren’t practicing their backhands, they can work out on the fitness center’s cardiovascular equipment or show up for one of 13 different fitness classes. Guests can also splash away the summer heat at Raintree's Olympic-size outdoor pool, which features a low and high dive, six swimming lanes, and a 3-foot wading area for people whose heads are allergic to water. It’s here that the club holds swimming lessons for preschoolers and competitive swimmers alike.

The fitness instructors are all certified in pre- and postnatal fitness, and sometimes they lead specialty classes such as running clubs.
