Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Opens Refurbished Tennis Complex

FARMINGTON, PA (June 29, 2016) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, a 2,000-acre luxury retreat in southwestern Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, will unveil its renovated tennis complex on July 1.

The resort’s four tennis courts have been completely refurbished using DecoTurf cushioned court surfaces. These surfaces have been selected for the last two summer Olympic games, the U.S. Open since 1978, the Emirates Airlines U.S. Open Series, the NCAA Championships, and several other events at venues around the world. DecoTurf is noted for its cushioned playing characteristics and uniform surfaces, which are highly resistant to weather elements and ultraviolet rays.

Resort guests can access the tennis facility for $40 per court, regardless of the number of players. The courts will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through October 31, and reservations are required.

And what are new courts without new equipment? Nemacolin has added eight new Wilson Blade tennis racquets and eight Babolat AreoPro Drive racquets. These can be rented for $7 per racquet, and a new selection of Gamma tennis balls is also available.

For those looking to improve their game with the help of modern technology, the resort has added a new tennis ball machine, too. The Playmate iSmash can be rented for $35 per hour; it holds 300 balls at a time and features seven programmable positions. As a bonus, the unit can synchronize with any iPhone through the iPlaymate Tennis app.

In addition to all the changes to the resort’s tennis offerings, Nemacolin has also resurfaced its shuffleboard and badminton courts.

These three sports are just a handful of the offerings at this resort that prides itself in providing a full array of activities – 70, at last count – for the enjoyment of its guests. Other outdoor pursuits include biking, clay shooting, fly fishing, golf, paintball and zip lining. For guests who prefer indoor activities – or for rainy-day fun – the resort offers the Woodlands Spa, Holistic Healing Center, wine tastings in the Académie du Vin and art classes.

And that just scratches the surface. For a complete list of activities, for additional information about the resort, or to make reservations, please visit or call 866-399-6957.
