What we're about

Welcome to Hayes Valley Tennis

Thank you for choosing Hayes Valley Tennis. As you May have come to realize we are among several active tennis groups throughout the Bay Area. With more than 100 community based tennis courts in San Francisco, surprisingly free. All that is required is your polite and courteous participation.

Considering that there is an expense associated with hosting and maintaining the event theaters, we would hope that players support our venue through donations and/or an event series. You may be as creative as you want, as long as the tennis theme remains unchanged. I expect as fellow competitors, that you challenge your comfort zone and Co-host a Tennis meet.

Hayes Valley Tennis is limited to the level of your ability to keep the ball in play. From Hit & Giggle, to the more serious competitive play. Our accommodations allow the participation of any player with the desire to improve their game. The only consideration is your RSVP. If you do not plan to attend please slide that RSVP tab to “NO”. This courtesy opens a slot for another player.

We began by knowing your level of play. It can be rather disconcerting to have brand news balls launched into oblivion by a Pro learning the game for the first time.

If you are a beginner this may not be the right venue for you. However, there are other accommodations worth exploring.

Generally when you arrive at the meet site, there should be someone hosting or the “regulars” eager to welcome your participation.

At Ella Hutch there are 4 courts. During the week until 530 courts 3 and 4 are available. Courts 1 and 2 are reserved for the resident instructors.

If we have two courts and 4 players please split the courts. The ideal tennis court activity will consist of a court for singles play and one for doubles. The effort is to retain courts for our participants. A fresh can of balls is always welcome.

We exercise a non-exclusionary policy, presently entertaining: Regentrifites, Technofites, Neophites, Millennials, Juniors, and Seniors.

That’s right we have crazy fun!

So join us, cast your ideas, host an event. Now let’s play.

After Work Tennis

Rossi Park

Come play some after work tennis! We will rally and/or play singles or doubles depending on the number of players. We encourage players with at least an intermediate level to attend. The max is 6 attendees so if you sign up but can't make it please cancel at least 24 hours in advance so others can take your spot. We know life is unpredictable but canceling a few hours before is not very courteous to other players. Several no-shows without cancellation AND same day cancellations will result in us dropping you from future meet-ups. To enforce this, you have until 9 pm the day before the meet-up to cancel before the RSVP window closes. Please also note that if you are wait-listed or just simply want to drop in, we ask that you NOT show up. While we want to be inclusionary, ten people to a court just doesn't make for fun tennis. So please respect the RSVP and waitlists with the aim of providing a more quality experience for those who are signed up. Now let's get some exercise and have some fun!
