Royal Melbourne's Tennis Program

Royal Melbourne Country Club is home to one of the best tennis programs in the Chicago area. We pride ourselves on creating a fun atmosphere, and we strive to provide our members and guests with the highest level of customer service and instruction. The private tennis club in Long Grove offers four beautiful Har Tru clay courts and a fully stocked tennis pro shop where you can find quality tennis apparel and equipment. We also offer racket stringing, repair and customization for our members and guests.

The tennis department is run by Mike Lardino, an experienced USPTA P-1 professional who has been teaching tennis for more than 15 years, five of which have been at Royal Melbourne. We also have an excellent staff of assistant professionals who are committed to meeting your needs. On-court activities include our junior tennis academies and teams, men's drills and nights, social events, and our very active ladies' program. We field four ladies teams in the Fox Valley Tennis League during the summer. Of course, we also offer quality private and group instruction for all ages.
