    What are tennis court shoes? 

    Tennis shoes are shoes designed to support the foot while playing tennis and prevent injury. 

    What is the difference between tennis shoes and running shoes article.

    What is meant by non-marking soled shoes? 

    UM Varsity Tennis Center requires participants to wear non-marking soled shoes on their indoor and outdoor courts. Shoes that don't leave a scuff mark and are specifically marked as such on the shoe or on the box. 

    Do I need a racquet? 

    Ann Arbor Rec & Ed instructors often have an extra racquet for our Youth and Beginner Adult programs. Loaner racquets are available for adults at the Rec & Ed front desk. Youth racquets size up to 25" are available for purchase.

    OUTDOORS (April-October) Ann Arbor Rec & Ed tennis classes are held on Ann Arbor Public School high school and middle school tennis courts.
