Though canines love tennis for its bouncy yellow balls, humans appreciate the freedom to bark loudly with each swing and bury their favorite rackets all over the court. Become a tennis beast with today's Groupon: for $60, you get The Tennis Experience lesson package, which includes three group lessons, one ball-machine session, free demos, and the tennis activity of your choice at the Gates Tennis Center (a $105 value). Lessons are designed for adults and teenagers age 15 and up. Call ahead to reserve you three-week session.

Gates Tennis Center boasts 20 public-access courts and a skilled staff of international pros and former world-ranked racqueteers. Fledgling forehanders are separated by skill—beginner, intermediate, and advanced—and taught in 6:1 student-to-teacher groups, affording players plenty of room to spread sphere-swiping wings. A trio of one-hour swat-athons instill beginners with basic baseline skills, and veteran volleyers fine-tune careening crosscourt shots and lofting lobs.

Today's deal also gets players one ball-machine session to hone ground strokes and lets them choose to participate in the singles ladder, a computerized registry of similarly skilled players, or enjoy a Sunday afternoon social mixer of mixed doubles. Though not included in today's deal, net jockeys with wooden racquet splinters can replace outdated gear by visiting the Gates Tennis center pro shop, where skilled staffers re-string frayed rackets, fit worn-out handles with fresh grip tape, and swaddle tender toes in bright white sneaker cocoons.


The United States Tennis Association gave Gates Tennis Center an Outstanding Facility Award in 2008. The Denver Post and the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle have featured Gates Tennis Center. Five Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average.

  • Since it has the look, feel, and all the amenities of a private club, many people mistake it for one. – Laura Lieff, Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle
  • I love Gates! The facility is large and very well-run, the pros are great, and they have tons of fun events and classes. Their prices can't be beat for classes, instruction, and merch. – Lisa L., Yelp, 1/27/11

Gates Tennis Center

In addition to its official name, The Gates Tennis Center can claim a few other titles: the largest tennis center in Colorado, for one. The host of the Colorado State Open. Home base to internationally renowned tennis instructors—including a former New Zealand junior champion and a coach of 25 years who has worked with players from Canada to the Caribbean.

For the past 30 years, the public tennis center has drawn on strengths like these to celebrate its signature sport through lessons and events, which include tournaments, tennis opens, and convivial socials. Students of all skill levels can attend lessons or ball-machine practices, which are far more effective than playing wallball with a mannequin.

Super facility with really kind, attentive staff. I signed up for lessons after one session with the ball machine. It's a treat to have this in Denver.
