Wintertime Recreational Tennis

Brief Description

It's wintertime and we still play tennis! However if the weather is brutally cold or if it's the kind of weather you'd expect to get sick in, then the event will be a NO-GO by default.

Our event is played about the time the sun sets, so it will be dark.  However, we do have court lighting, so it'll be manageable.

Total Cost, and exactly what it includes


When is it

We will play every Tuesday at 5pm.  We'll do a quick warmup and give everyone time to show up around 445pm.

Whether kids or dogs are welcome and any related restrictions

No dogs/pets allowed. 

Experience level, skills, or athletic ability needed to participate

We only volley here!  Occasionally, we'll get a legitimate game going, but until we have a really good turnout, we just volley.

 What to Bring

At least ONE good tennis racket. With this weather, wear tight-fitting neoprene inner-clothes.

Food/water situation

Bring water or gatorade.  I'd recommend candy bars if you need that quick energy. 


This event is open to Men and Women of all ages.  Athletic ability is preferred (just to prevent sports related injuries), but not required. 

Additional Notes

Be mindful of the weather.  We'd like to play in no colder than 42degF weather and no prior rainy days.  Health is of utmost concern when playing in the cold!

The event will be held at Kiln Creek's Featherstone Apartments and not at the Kiln Creek Recreational Center since a recent announcement regarding a major security incident there. If anyone has another venue that is well lit, please inform me and we'll change it up!
