Tennis, Anyone?


Let's keep the tradition going. Come play tennis with us in a friendly, low key atmosphere. We can just hit and practice or play games and matches; usually it is some combination of both. You don't have to be a great tennis player (I'm not!). That said, though, this is not for complete beginners. If you can get the ball over the net most of the time, come join us! I can't offer instruction but would be happy to provide helpful tips or friendly trash talk (depending on what you're into). Three things NOT to worry about: 1. Don't worry about there being an even number of players; we can work around that with no trouble. 2. Don't worry about not knowing how to keep score. We will help! 3. Don't worry about not being good enough, not having a strong serve, etc. Truly, this is for players of all levels. The point is to get together and play. Bring a racket, some water, and, if you have it, a can of balls. This event is weather dependent, so if you have any concerns about the weather check this site. If I am going to cancel due to weather I will do so around 5:00 the day of the event. I am cross posting this event for another Meeup group (Team Green) as well, so there will usually be more people there than are on this list. I hope to see you there!

      Something tells me I don't really want to know...

    I really screwed up, Cindy! I thought your original note said Elsa's on Far Hills and saved tables there. I am sorry that I "hijacked" your Meetup. I don't mean to be the Bad Karen. But Elsa's shouldn't have 2 restaurants so close together to confuse us!! I am very sorry. It made more sense to go to the one on Stroop & Marshall since it's closer. Sorry for my mistake!

      Thank you, Karen. I don't know who says you're "bad" - I know you meant well! I hope you can come next week.

    Hey guys, I'm glad you found each other and had fun. I decided to wait until 6:30 for stragglers, but by then I'd had half a Bad Juan and didn't want to drive! Look for tennis to change both days and location next week. Hopefully we'll have better weather!

      I am confused there are two different locations? I'm going to drive down Far Hills Avenue and see if I can find one I think I was on the way to the one on Stroop

      May 23, 2013

    • Tonya

      Yes Angie we are at Far Hills:-)

    • Angie

    What if it rains?!? I'll still try and come out. We should be fine, as long as there's no thunder.

    May 23, 2013

    • Karen H

      I work 5 minutes from courts and it's all wet here. I'm heading to Elsa's on Far Hills now...I'll have a small "Meetup" sign at the table.

      May 23, 2013

    • Tonya

      On my way Karen.

    Okay, sounds good.. I live over by the courts, and it just started raining. Hopefully it stops soon

    May 23, 2013

  • Cindy W

    There is only a 30% chance of rain, so let's try it. And I agree with Angie's plan - if it rains we'll just go to Elsa's early!

    May 23, 2013

  • Cindy W

    I am delighted to say that, between the 2 groups, there are now 15 people signed up for this event!! :D! If anyone could get there early and help me snag some courts - 3 courst should do it - I'd be grateful. I'll be there by 6:00. See you soon!

    May 22, 2013

    • Angie

      I am planning to be there early

      May 22, 2013
