About MPV (formed July 2010):

Play is on sand and grass at Marina Park (San Leandro) every Sunday in any weather. This massive park can hold a dozen nets. We always welcome more skilled players (B, BB, A, AA) and C/Beginning players aspiring to improve.

There are two SAND courts and two GRASS courts dedicated to DOUBLES: For each surface, the level is BB/A/AA on one court and C/B/higher on the other. The winning team plays again (or has the option to relinquish to the next challengers). Other grass courts are for 3 to 6 players per side, typically C and/or B. Additional courts are available for beginners and children.

Advanced venues: Play is on sand only (mostly doubles) at Ocean Beach (San Francisco), Mission Bay Creek Park (San Francisco), Fremont Tennis Center, Clark Kerr Campus (Berkeley), Montara Beach, and Santa Cruz Beach.

      Hi Don, appreciate the tip about Fremont - unfortunately we're off surfing on Sunday and can't make it. Will keep it in mind in the weeks ahead though!

    The play at Snow Park was great but the park bathrooms were locked. There is another park on the other side of Lake Merritt between Grand Ave. and Lakeshore Ave. near the Oakland Public Library on one side and the 580 freeway on the other side. The park has a large flat grass area that would accommodate four courts or more easily. There is plenty of parking under the 580 freeway and in the library parking lot (which closes at 5:30). There are bathrooms next to the library that were open! And there is playground at which the children can play.

    Very warm day and a huge turnout for only 2 nets. Players came and left so the backlog wasn't too bad. Not sure we can do this park again since there is little space. Decent games.

      Theresa and Kevin, both of you should come to Fremont on Sunday. People are driving from all over the Bay Area to these games. We got several players driving 30 to 40+ miles to Fremont. People are driving up to 70 miles for the beach games. Carpools are available. Message me if you need one.
