The two original south tennis courts were built in 1961 with help from the Maryville Host Lions Club assisting MPR by providing the financing for the courts and the Rotary Club assisting with the fencing. Following, in 1976 the two north courts were constructed with help of a matching grant from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Water Conservation Fund. 

Since then, they've been enjoyed by many either learning the sport of tennis, or spending a quality afternoon enjoying the sport. Having four tennis courts makes room for multiple games at the same time and perfect for tournaments, family events, or friends gathering.
