Tennis/Pickleball in the Metrowest, MA Area

Tennis has long been a favorite sport of many of our Members, and pickleball is rapidly growing in popularity. At Charter Oak Country Club, we offer outdoor courts for both tennis and pickleball players to enjoy. Located in Hudson, Massachusetts, Charter Oak Country Club serves Members throughout the MetroWest MA area. Learn more about our tennis country club courts and other athletic facilities.

What Is Pickleball?

Currently one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States, pickleball combines elements of tennis and table tennis. It can be played with singles or doubles (including mixed doubles) and is a great way to get low-impact exercise. Pickleball courts are much smaller than tennis courts: a regulation pickleball court is 44 ft. long by 20 ft. wide. The ball is served underhand and serving players can score a point when non-serving players commit a fault. The first side to reach 11 points with at least a two-point lead is the winner.

Our Tennis and Pickleball Country Club Facilities

Charter Oak Country Club is home to two regulation tennis courts and four pickleball courts. To provide shade on hot days, there is an awning next to the courts. Our Members enjoy using the courts for recreational play with friends and family. We have also added an Outdoor Bar for after your game. We pride ourselves on our professional maintenance services so all courts are kept in good working order. The club also offers tennis and pickleball clinics throughout the year for those who are new to these sports or more experienced players who want to refine their techniques.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are available for club Members who want one-on-one support. Our tennis programming is managed by Ryan Pilla, Director of Racquet Sports. Pilla previously served at Concord Country Club and Manhattan Tennis Academy. He holds certification through the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and has customized his coaching to each player’s age, abilities, and interests.

Programming for Children

Charter Oak Country Club also offers weeklong day camp programs during the summer in partnership with KE Camps. Our children’s programs are led by caring, engaging staff who provide a range of engaging activities. In addition to country club pickleball and tennis, children can participate in:

  • Swimming
  • Games
  • STEM programs
  • Arts and crafts

Camp fees include lunch and snacks, as well as camp t-shirts.

The club also hosts junior sports programs throughout the year, including tennis and golf clinics and camps.
