Tennis & Pickleball


Mark Schleif is back for his third season as the Head Tennis Professional at Iron Horse. Coach Mark is looking forward to growing the game of tennis at Iron Horse for adults and juniors. Mark will be available for lessons June 13 – September 16, 2022.

Iron Horse features two Har-Tru clay courts at our tennis facility.  Clay courts open for the season on June 13, 2022. For those who have not had a chance to play on clay, it is a wonderful soft surface that is very easy on the body and makes for a great game of tennis. Iron Horse is one of the few facilities in the west to feature these state-of-the-art courts.  One hard surface court is available for tennis as well as four official pickleball courts. Hard courts open for the season on May 7, 2022.

Members are welcome set up lesson schedules prior to the summer.

In 2020, Iron Horse converted their two hard surface tennis courts with hybrid pickleball courts over the top into one resurfaced hard tennis court and four official pickleball courts.  The result is a great location for both competitive and recreational pickleball for members of all ability levels.

For the 2022 season, Iron Horse is happy to welcome Professional Pickleball Instructor Wesley Mathison to our team.  Coach Wesley will be conducting private lessons as well as instructional clinics and mixers.

Coach Wesley, a Flathead Valley native, is a current Pickleball Tour Professional, who has competed for the past 4 years.  He is sponsored by Selkirk and has coached some of the top-ranked tour professionals.

Coach Wesley is joined by Coach Connor Fuller, who will be facilitating open play for members who wish to drop in and play.
