The activity center includes a lounge area, student study area, restrooms, locker rooms with showers, meeting and office space, and a stocked pro shop. The complex currently hosts USTA league play, open/free play, personalized instruction sessions, and developmental clinics. In partnership with the Florence Tennis Association, the City also offers an after-school educational/tennis outreach program for city youth.
Since the opening of the Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center in July 2011, the City of Florence Recreation Department has been productive in promoting and marketing the new center through weekly scheduled programs which include a youth academy, 2-4 person Clinics, Adult Beginners Classes and individual lessons. The City of Florence has consistently been awarded a USTA Women’s Pro-Circuit event, which has a $25K purse and will feature some of the up and coming talent in the professional tennis arena, such as the 2014 winner CiCi Bellis.
The Dr. Eddie Floyd Florence Tennis Center is one of South Carolina’s Premier Tennis facilities. In conjunction with the Florence Tennis Association, the complex regularly hosts tournaments such as the USTA Mixed Doubles State Championship and the Florence Open, a USTA Pro Circuit tournament, and Peachbelt Conference Championships.
