Jim Nichols Tennis Complex

The Jim Nichols Tennis Complex sits across from Triangle Park and features Dayton’s only clay courts for serious tennis players and enthusiasts. The Tennis Center includes 3 hard courts and 6 clay courts for youth camps, individual and league play. Clay and hard courts are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are available as camp, league and tournament schedules allow.
