Tennis Overview

Crowne Plaza Resort guests have complimentary use of the outdoor tennis facilities at the onsite Asheville Racquet Club – from April – November (wether permitting). Founded in 1974, ARC South was the first major club in WNC to be devoted primarily to tennis. During the four decades since its inception, the Club has played a major role in the game of tennis in the community. We would like to invite you to come in for a tour and experience the Club for yourself.

Two locations in Asheville now make it convenient for you and your family to stay active together. We are a family oriented facility providing services from youth age groups to seniors. Our facility is designed to provide you with the best tennis, fitness, golf, soccer and swim in our area. All the activities are customized with your goals in mind. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is here to answer your questions and personalize your workout. We want ARC to be your home away from home where families can make memories that last a lifetime. Our clubs are the perfect place to relax, meet new friends, visit with old friends and get into the best shape of your life.
