About us

Welcome to Queen City Tennis!

Charlotte's leading retail shop for tennis enthusiasts. For tennis equipment, apparel and expert advice, our friendly professional staff is here to help.


Starting Monday, May 25th, both locations will be open during the following times:


Monday-Friday: 10am-6pm

Saturday: 10am-5pm


We do ask that you please call ahead if you wish to purchase something or if you need a racquet to be restrung so we can get your order taken care of before you come to the store. Due to the State of NC being in the Phase Two reopen, our stores are opened on shorter hours.

***NOTE: We are slowly allowing customers into the stores; however, we are limited to having only 3 customers inside each store at a time. That is why we do ask that in store purchases be completed in a timely manner.

Thank you for your help and understanding during this time!
