Weekly Intermediate+ Mixed Tennis Group

Enjoy tennis with a great variety of players in the great outdoors!  This group is an excellent way to broaden your skills, meet people, and find similar players: We typically juggle courts and player allocations about every 30 minutes or so. I need to collect a contribution before we start of $2 or more each week until I cover the cost of the group so please bring change.  If you have any questions please call or text me @[masked]-5016.

CANCELLATION: In the event of possible rain or not enough participants (see "RSVP" below), please watch the message board and your email that day for updates: I will try to make a go/no-go call by 4pm on game days.  This will often be a guess so people don't have to drive too far out of their way.   

SUMMARY: You can arrive at the start time or any time after that (if arriving later, please post below if possible to let us know so we can set up courts).    Find the current organizer(s) to get assigned to a court.   Feel free to invite your friends (using RSVPs)!   PLEASE bring some extra balls and lots of hydration.  

SKILL LEVEL:  Since it's very difficult to match up players we're asking that only intermediate and higher-level players attend (USTA[masked] if you're rated).  This means you have familiarity with scoring and rules, reasonable serving, and ability to keep the ball in play with some consistency against similar players.  We greatly appreciate those that are trying to learn the game (we've all been there) but it's been too hard to line up courts in those cases.

RSVP: If you think you're going, please RSVP and if you change your mind after an RSVP please be fair to other members and change it online *if possible*; it helps us figure out the balance of players and skill levels or if there will be enough players.  If you're just getting there later you can still come but let us know if you can.  Also, if our courts are full, we'll need to allocate those that RSVPed first.

      Hi John, Just 2 so far.. I made it a point to ask people to RSVP if they were coming but I'm not sure if everyone did that. Please keep an eye on the NEW meetup discussion, though, not this one:

      Thanks for the update. If you are close to the courts, are the roads & sidewalks dry?

      August 5

  • Ron F

    Looks clear now.. is anyone near those courts so we can tell if they're dry?

  • Anil

    I can make it. Can I join without RSVPing?

    August 5

    • Ron F

      Yup... see above update on the weather.

      August 5

  • Ron F

    I'm not sure what the deal is with the "closed" RSVPs; there are still 10 left. I will check. Yes, just show up.

    I'm hoping the weather holds out. It's pouring rain where I live 10 miles north but the weather map says Novi is fine. Does anyone live fairly close??

    August 4

  • Ron F

    Hi folks - I have reports of rain and the weather map doesn't look very good at all.. postponing until tomorrow. Please update your RSVP if not coming.

    August 4

  • Ramon

    Hi! It'll be my first time out with this group. Looking forward to the skies not opening up!

    1 · August 4

    • Ron F

      Ramon - great! We'll love to have you. I just reviewed the weather map, though, and things look pretty dire starting at around 430 or so. I'll keep you all updated. It's probable that we'll have to reschedule until tomorrow but we shall see.

      August 4

    • Bri J

      I'm down for tomorrow if today gets cancelled....just FYI

      August 4

  • Ron F

    Hi everyone! Sounds like last week went well. I'm back now and ready to play.. but here we go again - 50% chance of rain starting at 5pm. I guess that means 50% that it WON'T rain. Please keep an eye here or in your email later in the day for updates.

    August 4

  • Lori C.

    I'm going to watch my nephew play in the boys 16 and over tennis championships in Kzoo tomorrow so I won't be there.

    1 · August 3

  • Don M.

    First time yesterday .... friendly people and some good tennis. Will come again ....

    1 · July 29

  • Ron F

    I will post here and/or email everyone that RSVPed "Yes" on the day of the Meetup if there is a cancellation due to weather or other factors so please check one of those options prior. Also: It's very important you RSVP if you are going and cancel if you'd RSVPed yes and CAN'T go. We are pretty full and it helps us allocate courts appropriately. Also please see the "SKILL LEVEL" section above.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
