Knoxville Racquet Club has grown to be the largest tennis, swim and fitness facility with premier programs in East Tennessee. The primary benefit of membership is the opportunity to participate in a complete schedule of activities (clinics, leagues, USTA and GKTA city team competitions, GKAISA city swim meets, and fitness programs) for all levels and ages.
Established in 1961, KRC has promoted the enjoyment of tennis and swimming activities to its members. Many of its members have pursued these athletic ambitions on a collegiate level. Some have become champions. In fact, we hold over 30 national titles. We have developed touring professionals who have played in all major tennis championships. Our current touring professional, JP Smith, is one of two players in NCAA history to be an All-American in singles and doubles for four straight years. Over 50 years, KRC has become the premier club in Knoxville for tennis and swimming.
