About the club

The Genesee Volley Tennis Club is the premiere tennis club in Livingston County, New York. The club is a not-for-profit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors of 15 members.

A brand new state-of-the-art Har-Tru clay tennis court constructed on the grounds of the historic Hartford House at 17 Avon Road in the Village of Geneseo has been leased by the club. Connoisseurs of tennis know that Har-Tru is the best surface for long-lasting, fun rallies and is the easiest on the body too! 

35 Charter Members helped construct the court in June 0f 2008. Over 20 new families have joined them since membership was opened to the public in August of that year. In 2009, the club added a grass court which is now open for play as well.

Over 50 of our members played in the 2009 Doubles Leagues. The club also held Championships this past summer in Men's and Women's Singles, Mixed Doubles and Open Doubles and runs a Challenge Ladder in Mixed Doubles and Open Singles. (Open means men and women compete in the same draw or ladder)

New players at all levels of ability are always welcome! Club pro "Biff" Strong also offers private lessons and group clinics for all levels and ages of players, including Quick Start Tennis for children 5-10.

If you interested in joining, please request an application by e-mail or call 585-233-5338

Membership for the 2011 season costs just $175 (Plus a one-time $75 initiation fee). Young familes with children ages 12 and under receive a discounted membership fee of $150 per year and pay no initiation fee.
