Cliff Drysdale Tennis Selected to Manage Operations at Polo Tennis and Fitness Club



Cliff Drysdale Tennis, a Troon Company, has been selected to manage operations at Polo Tennis and Fitness Club, a private club located in Austin, Texas. Program and facility enhancements, member benefits and more will begin effective June 1, 2021.


Under new ownership since 2016, Polo Tennis and Fitness Club has been a hub for tennis and social life in southwest Austin for two decades. One of the most popular and prestigious clubs in Texas, the facility boasts a strong staff of professionals and hosts a number of regional and national events. The High Performance Academy program is internationally renowned and features some of the best players in the nation.


The club features Austin's only Plexi-cushion Prestige tennis courts providing an orthopedic-friendly playing experience. The subsurface cushioning system reduces stress on joints allowing for longer play with less fatigue. All 10 courts have low profile lighting & covered cabanas. The 8,500 square foot clubhouse includes an all-encompassing fitness center as well as men's and women's locker rooms. Finally, the resort style pool boasts an architecturally unique three level pool with its own rock waterfall with a continuously circulating water filtration system.


“Polo Tennis and Fitness Club is one of the finest clubs in Austin,” said Kimberly Runyan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Cliff Drysdale Tennis. “We’re thrilled to partner with this stunning location and are motivated to bring an enhanced member experience for players of ages and abilities.”


“On behalf of the Polo Club owners Anders Eriksson, Hector Bonilla, Joe Stevens and myself, we all express great excitement for our club members, who will now enjoy the experience of the Cliff Drysdale Tennis and Troon programs as well as their worldwide network of resort golf and tennis clubs,” said Steve Cossette, co-owner of Polo Tennis and Fitness Club. “We welcome the CDT professionals to the Polo Club and we join with them to make The Polo Tennis & Fitness Club a truly world class experience.” The Club features robust programming for adults and juniors. Adult programming highlights include multiple USTA and WTTA (Women’s Team Tennis of Austin) league teams, weekly clinics, and beginner offerings. Juniors of all levels can find their pathway, with a strong developmental program for all levels, leading all the way up to the high performance program. All Polo club members will receive reciprocal benefits at clubs and resorts through the U.S. and internationally through CDT’s Experience Rewards Program.
