• What to bring
New can of tennis balls. Depending on how many attend, not every can will need to get opened each session. We'll rotate and take turns.

Some more info:
Advanced intermediate players looking for terrific midweek singles / doubles action with equally-matched dynamic players seeking fun and great people.

We are looking primarily for regulars who can dependably play on most Monday and Thursday evenings from 7-9 PM at Penmar Park Tennis Courts in Venice, CA. By strictly adhering to this tight ratings range, all four good players on a court should be interchangeable as partners in any rotation, enhancing the evening's overall experience.

We will have one or two courts, depending on signups.

Last minute cancellations is unfair to other players, especially if a waitlister is not available on short notice, and could result in removal from the group.

See you at the courts!
