(Updated February 2013)
Come on out and join us Sunday mornings for some great social tennis at Horizon High School, located on the southeast corner of Greenway Road and 56th Street. We are a varied group of experienced players who enjoy both the competitive and social components of the game. Men and women of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to participate! Let's have some fun tennis.
A few minor guidelines:
RSVP: Please be courteous and RSVP so that we know who is coming. Those that do RSVP are given priority to play over those that do not RSVP.
Start Time: The official Meetup start time is 8:30 AM. However many players tend to show up earlier, especially in the summer months. Just indicate in your RSVP commentary your start time preference, and if others follow suit, then you are golden! You may also start later if you wish, but things usually wind down around 11:30 AM or a even later (based on who can play), except for a few diehards!
Location:From the intersection of Greenway Road and 56th Street, go south on 56th Street and make a left onto Nisbet Road, then make a left into the South parking lot. Just look for all the cars. You can’t miss it.
Experience Level:You don’t have to be Roger Federer or Serena Williams to participate in this group! However, you do need to know the basic rules of the game (i.e. etiquette, how to keep score) and be able to keep a rally going. If you are a total beginner, we recommend you take lessons first, and then come on out and join us once you have mastered (or decent enough w/) the basics!
Dress Code: Our dress code is casual but we do request that you dress! In other words, we have a mandatory “shirt on” policy with our group, even if you happen to be a GQ model. Please honor this policy.
Playing Tennis!: The Meetup players usually play on the north courts. If you are not certain, just ask, “Are you part of the Meetup Group?” Since we almost always play doubles, feel free to join in on the action if there are 1, 2, or 3 players already hitting on a court. If there happens to be a shortage of courts or an odd number of players, please work with one another to rotate everyone in so that we all get a chance to do what we came to do: Play Tennis!
What to Bring: Please bring plenty of water, a fresh can of balls, and a positive attitude! :) Note: The restrooms on the premises are locked during the weekends, but there are numerous grocery stores and convenience stores 2mins away in case you do need to leave the premises.
Have Fun!: Our group promotes a safe, friendly, and social environment where we can escape our daily routines, get some great exercise and most importantly, Have FUN! We are a very social and happy group. See you this Sunday! It’s on!
