Bay Area Tennis players are ready to have fun and stay fit playing tennis! From San Francisco to San Jose, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Santa Clara, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, East Bay and more locations.
Bay Area Tennis Players is a not-for-profit group of individuals who love to play pickup tennis. We use this meetup site as a calendar to indicate when we would like to play and where. There are no fees to participate.
Ours is one of the largest and most active pickup tennis communities in the country, with hundreds of participants every week across the bay. We have beginners to advanced players. The nice weather an nice people might be why!
Our events are relaxed and easy going. Play is based on court availability and player preference. You suggest and/or participate in events in various locations of your choice.
Our policies are: abide by the court/city rules, leave the courts cleaner than when you started, always be courteous and safe playing and behave well with others. Bad behavior towards others, no-shows, refusal to play with others or not abiding by the rules are grounds for dismisal from the community.
If you are interested in match play, for increased skill building, a flexible tennis league may be more suitable for you. Our sponsor RacketLogger provides flex tennis leagues with light competitive matches (ask for the bay area tennis group discount).
Always read the event description to make sure your level of play, location and interest matches the event.
Photo. It's important to upload a clear photo of yourself so hosts and other players can recognize you when you attend. We want to recognize people in person.
Policies. All our play is friendly and happy with nice and courteous people. Polite behavior is expected from everyone at all times. This is a must for happy play. Anything like bad language, inappropriate displays, annoying or harassing behavior or should be reported to the volunteer host and will be grounds for removal from the community.
Hosting. If you are interested in volunteering as an event host at a court near you let some other host know. There are no obligations. Only good humor, good people skills and a great attitude for fun.
Thanks to our sponsors for helping us run this group! They are Swetka's Tennis Shop, the best tennis shop in the Bay Area (and beyond) and RacketLogger, a site to track your rackets and create or participate in flex tennis leagues.
