Have you ever had that burst of energy to go outside and play a sport after watching the professional and college players on television?  Fortunately for our Wilkes communities, in addition to the high school teams and competitions, you have the Northern Foothills Tennis Club (NFTC) located at its new facility in Lynnwoode, North Wilkesboro, established in 1991.

In addition to classes offered at NFTC, there are sponsored events, tournaments, fitness classes and social events - like the annual “Rally for the Cure” and  "PAWS for the Cause"  events which helps to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research.

Classes and lessons at NFTC are taught by Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) Professional Beckie Mathis and Bernie Operorio. See the "Our Team" page for more information about our Tennis Professional  and Board members.
