Vandalia-Butler has been hosting its tennis practices and matches at a neutral, away location due to the poor condition of the tennis courts.

As a result of the agreement between the school district and the city, the tennis team will likely return to the Vandalia courts next year.

In addition, there is discussion of installing Pickleball courts at various locations.
