Welcome to the Lombard Area Outdoor Tennis Group’s 7th year!
We have players ranging in age from late teens to 60’s, married and single-
We have players ranging in skill level from beginner to 4.5 NTRP. We definitely get competitive games going, but at the same time, we don’t take ourselves too seriously - when you join us at the Meetups, always be friendly, learn the other member’s names and have fun.
There is a night for Beginner/Advanced Beginners Tennis and the rest of the Meetups are for Intermediate players and up~
This year I hope to schedule a lot more tournaments- there will be separate tournaments for players 3-3.4 level and 3.5 and above~
Also, you must have a recognizable photo of yourself posted,,,sorry no cartoons, pics. of flowers, etc. I will always try to match you with players who are close to your playing ability. If we have odd numbers we will play Canadian doubles and rotate to give everyone a chance. If you want to make comments, I prefer you do this in my private messages. If there's something the group should know, I will pass it on. Negative comments or weather forecasts should always be in my private to keep our attendance high. As a general rule I will only cancel a meetup for weather reasons about an hour before the meetup. I usually WILL NOT cancel a meetup unless rain is IN THE AIR one hour or less before the meetup. Otherwise I will sweep and dry the courts for us. We never cancel for clouds, wind or low temps unless below 40 degrees. If the meetup is cancelled I will place this in the comments section of the meetup event usually about 1 hour before the event. Nate H.
