Bay Area Tennis players are ready to have fun and stay fit in open pickup tennis. From San Francisco to Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Santa Clara, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, East Bay and more locations. You can start some pickup tennis too.
Bay Area Tennis Players is a not-for-profit group of individuals who love to play pickup tennis. We use the meetup site 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!
Meetups are relaxed and easy going, and play is based on court availability and player preference. You suggest and/or participate in events in various locations of their choice.
Our policies are: abide by the court/city rules, leave the courts cleaner than when you started, always achieve courteous and safe play and generally behave well with others. Bad behavior towards others or not abiding rules are grounds from being dismissed 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 details to make sure your level of play and interest matches the event.
When you join our community, please indicate the following in your profile:
1) Your level (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
2) Preference for singles or doubles
Photo. It's important to upload a clear photo of yourself so hosts and other players can recognize you when you attend. You 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), RacketLogger, a site to track your rackets and create or participate in flex tennis leagues, and the Broadway Tennis Center, a professional-quality indoor court complex in Burlingame.
