Lakeside Tennis & Pickleball Association
The Lakeside Tennis Club was established in the 1940s. Since its inception, the goal of the club has been to assist the Lakeside Chautauqua Tennis Staff in providing an exceptional tennis facility and programs for players of all ages to learn and play tennis.
In 2019 the Tennis & Pickleball Association was formed when Lakeside built state-of-the-art pickleball courts at the Hubbard Pickleball Center next to the Williams Tennis Campus, located on Sixth Street in south Lakeside.
Every year the Association hosts a variety of world-ranked pros, tournaments, mixers and round-robins for guests and residents.
Membership in the Lakeside Tennis & Pickleball Association is open to all Lakeside Chautauqua summer guests and residents for an annual donation of $25 for individuals or $40 for families. Donations are used for special projects that supplement the Lakeside Chautauqua operating budget for tennis and pickleball.

Tennis & Pickleball Facilities
The Lakeside tennis facilities feature 10 tennis courts on three different surfaces. At the Williams Tennis Campus, there are three fast drying HarTru courts, two natural clay courts and two hard courts. Three additional hard courts are located along the lakefront in Perry Park.
At the Hubbard Pickleball Center, there are eight courts dedicated to this popular sport. Pickleball is a game that combines the elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.

A number of major tennis events are hosted by the Lakeside Tennis & Pickleball Association during the summer.
