Plaza Tennis Center is an outdoor public tennis facility in Kansas City. Located on parkland and constructed in 1928, Plaza Tennis Center has served the KC tennis community for generations. Plaza Tennis Center — nestled next to Country Club Plaza, the Midwest’s oldest outdoor shopping and dining area — features 14 outdoor lighted tennis courts, two practice boards and a clubhouse. The exhibition court offers bleacher seating.

The United States Tennis Association Missouri Valley became operating manager of Plaza Tennis Center in 2024. The Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department invested in the facility by resurfacing every court in the spring of 2024. The courts are constructed of post-tensioned concrete. Plaza Tennis Center is home to the Rockhurst University men’s and women’s tennis programs, as well as the University of Missouri-Kansas City women’s tennis team. The Rockhurst High School boys’ tennis team and the St. Teresa’s Academy girls’ tennis team also compete at Plaza Tennis Center. The facility is the host site of USTA Missouri Valley events such as league section championships, the Tennis On Campus Fall Invite and a Junior Team Tennis Qualifier. The facility is open to players of all ages and skill levels.
