In 2016, GHTA partnered with the City of Hickory and was instrumental in getting improvements made to the HICKORY CITY PARK tennis facility: all courts were repaired, new restrooms constructed, a spacious meeting area was built, new bleachers were installed, and a modern covered shelter facing the courts was completed.

We offer Junior Tournaments at least 4 times a year – typically March, May, July and October. These tournaments are not only for players in HICKORY, but include North Carolina and surrounding states. Participation has steadily grown over the last several years, including the 2020-22 pandemic.

Look For Exciting New Tennis Programs In 2023!
