Tennis & Pickleball

Hickory’s well-maintained, lighted tennis area features six hard courts, two clay courts, an outdoor pavilion and patio space. The Pro Shop is staffed year-round by USPTR professional Jim Klousia who assists members with private lessons, special clinics, organized play and equipment selection. Throughout the years, many state and area champions have called the courts at Hickory Hills Country Club their home. To contact the Tennis Pro Shop, call (417) 869-3391.


Jim Klousia has been teaching tennis to Hickory families for over 30 years, richly enhancing and expanding their youth, men’s and women’s programs. He began his coaching career at Missouri State University in 1978, and retired as the third longest tenured coach in the school’s history. He has played and won numerous USTA tennis tournaments, Missouri Valley Sectional Championships and National Public Parks Championships. Most recently, Jim was inducted into the Springfield Area Sports Hall of Fame. Hickory and its members are proud to claim Jim as their Tennis Pro.
