VTC Transition

The City of Vancouver and United States Tennis Association Pacific Northwest (USTA PNW) will begin facility upgrades, including on and off-court renovations to Vancouver Tennis Center (VTC) beginning August 13, 2018.

To accommodate the upgrades and renovations, as well as complete the management and operations transition to the USTA PNW, the City plans to close VTC beginning August 13, 2018 until it’s tentatively scheduled reopening in September 2018 - provided the City’s roof replacement and all facility renovations are complete. During this time, there will be no access for members, high school players, or the public to the VTC facility, grounds, indoor courts, outdoor courts, or any part of the facility.

During this brief closure, the USTA PNW will be completing numerous facility upgrades, including court resurfacing, LED light installation and enhanced court technology all in an effort to create a best-in-class on-court and off-court tennis experience for the residents of Vancouver.

Yes. Until the City’s closure of the facility on August 13, the Vancouver Tennis Center will maintain regularly scheduled business hours and programming as set by the City of Vancouver.

Players are encouraged to continue to book courts, programs and lessons as they normally would through the current website and with the existing tennis pros and staff or by phone (360) 487-8123.
Per City of Vancouver policy, VTC operates as a 100% cost recovery “enterprise operation.” Cost recovery declined from 85.8% to 74.9% over the last four years. The impact included the inability to provide a “pay for performance” system for tennis pros and provided no funding to facilitate much-needed investments in the facility, courts, technology, or marketing and special events.

Through an RFP process beginning in December 2016, the City issued an RFP for the operation, maintenance, and management of VTC, specifically asking vendors to “streamline the operation of the facility and to provide moderately priced tennis to patrons while improving the financial stability of the center so it can remain a community asset for years to come.”

USTA PNW won the bid and will invest more than $1.4 million in capital improvements over the course of the next two years. USTA is also providing support and resources to numerous Vancouver community spaces and groups including increasing the total number of free court hours for local high schools, resurfacing outdoor tennis courts at two public parks, and creating jobs to provide recreational and family tennis programs in surrounding public schools and public parks in the summer.
USTA PNW is a non-profit, 501c3 organization whose mission is to promote the growth of tennis through engaging children, adults and families in every neighborhood. In many cases, tennis facilities cannot afford to remain open or maintain a high quality, modernized on-court and off-court experience. USTA PNW’s mission enables the organization to help keep public tennis facilities from going out-of-business and helps the PNW section prevent losing public tennis courts, particularly during the rainy months.

For safety reasons, there will be absolutely no access to VTC during the 2-3 week closure for existing VTC members, the public or high schools. Click here for a listing of nearby tennis courts both private and public.
The City of Vancouver officially closed the racquetball courts at VTC in February 2018 and they will remain closed and are not part of USTA’s responsibilities. Please contact Vancouver Parks and Recreation for more information.
As a partner of the Vancouver School District, we are excited to continue our partnership with Vancouver area schools and will increase the total number of free tennis court hours and opportunities for high school student-athletes to play at VTC. Due to safety reasons, during the planned 2-3 week closure period, high school players, existing VTC members and the public will not have access to VTC.
All current VTC tennis pros and front staff desk who are interested in pursuing a position as a USTA PNW employee are encouraged to apply and will be guaranteed a first-round interview as part of the hiring process. Patrick Dreves will serve as the General Manager and Director of Tennis at VTC. Click here for a full listing of VTC Job Openings.
