Southern Oaks Athletic Club is proud to offer 4 lighted, Hydro Clay tennis courts for our members. Hydro Clay courts offer a number of great benefits for tennis players, allowing our member s to train like champions on the most advanced tennis court systems available today. Some of these benefits include:

  • No Down Time – Unlike traditional clay or hard courts, Hydro Clay courts maintain the optimal moisture level at all times, so the courts are never shut down for watering.
  • Consistency – Our Hydro Clay court systems are designed to keep the water coverage even and uniform throughout the court, meaning better and more consistent traction for our members.

How Do Hydro Clay Tennis Courts Work?

Using a 2,000-year-old principle, Hydro Clay courts are designed to maintain a consistent moisture level utilizing sub-terrain pipes and controls. As the water level rises, the water level under the court also rises. We then use a control box to adjust the levels to ensure they are consistently at the ideal moisture level.

At Southern Oaks Athletic Club, we are always looking for ways to ensure our members receive the very best health and fitness experience possible. Our Hydro Clay court systems are just one more way to help make Southern Oaks the destination for Baton Rouge fitness enthusiasts!
