What we're about

Hello, Welcome to Carolina Tennis Community.

My name is Chris Jones ( and I want to thank you for choosing to become a member of a unique tennis group that consists of Tennis Players of all skill levels. We are always reaching out to the Tennis community with open invitations to join the most active Tennis meetup group in the area.

Our member base ranges in skill level from Beginner (USTA 1.0) to Advanced (4.0/4.5+). Our weekly Meetups cater to those who want to learn the game to those trying to improve their skills beyond their current self-rated level.

As a member I encourage you to learn, play, have fun, meet others, compete and most of all become a better tennis player. Never played before? no problem, If you are wanting to learn the sport now is a great time to do so - the group welcomes anyone wanting to learn the sport for the first time (NTRP 1.0) - to - the Advanced (NTRP 4.0+) player looking to just play games.

Tennis is not only a great sport but has also been recognized for its tremendous health, fitness and psychological benefits. An activity such as tennis that is also social and fun, can serve as a welcome change to mundane gym workouts or as an additional activity in a fitness regimen. While other sports can provide excellent health benefits and some can promote mental and emotional growth, none can compete with tennis in delivering overall physical, mental and emotional gains to those who play

Our Tennis group members share a common desire to meet others who are within their tennis skill level. Meeting others and Interacting on the Tennis court among similarly skilled players is an excellent way to enjoy the sport without fear of rejection or embarrassment. Advanced players were once Beginner's and I hope you will take advantage of all the group has to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact me with suggestions, ideas or concerns.

The Carolina Tennis group is for the recreational player, just learning player, rusty ex-high school player, ambitious Beginner, Future League or Tournament player ... this list goes on.

You are Welcome in our group! We do not discriminate! Join today.

A great opportunity is ahead - I invite you to take the Tennis challenge.

We offer Lesson, Group Tennis Clinics & additional opportunities for you to grow as a Tennis Player.

My Goal is to create an atmosphere where you are welcome and feel comfortable while still having Fun enjoying the sport of a LifeTime.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by - please take a moment to join and be a part of the Tennis Community.

Thanks again for helping to make our group the best Tennis group around.

-Coach Chris.
