The Flushing Meadows Tennis Meetup Group is a platform for tennis lovers to convene, to organize games and matches, to promote the sport of tennis, and most importantly, to have fun. We welcome all levels of players from beginners to professional coaches to join us and serve each other. We use to call ourself New York Tennis Meetup and attracted many all tennis lovers from five Boroughs plus a few from Upstates and Long Island. We changed our name to reflect the fact that I, personally will only organize games and events in those at and around Flushing Meadows (where NTC and US Open is). If you are from other location and want to use the great feature of the website to organize games, tennis classes and events, you are welcome to let me know.
To facilitate event organizing, please observe the following guidelines:
All members must post a face recognizable picture on the profile page. Anyone can request to be an Event Organizer (EO) as long as he/she has been active with the group. While being "active" is subjective, I would say a good attendance of 20+ without "no-show" is a good indication. As EO, one would reserve the court, post and host the event. He can also place all RSVP on wait list from which the EO would pick out the final tennists before the event date. As a courtesy to the EO and members on waiting list, please change RSVP well in advance. The general rule of thumb is at least 24 hours before the event. EO should post a self rating range on the event base on NTRP system, e.g. 1.5 - 2.5 for members to consider before RSVP. EO determine cost but it must be posted on the event in advance. For amateur players, we suggest sharing the court fee and cost of new balls. To cover some intangible expenses, EO can have the liberty to charge higher than cost. From time to time, the group shall organize free coaching session exclusively for the EOs. Members' record showing frequent no show without cancelling will be removed from the group. Late cancellations are considered as no show. Please make sure all players who show up check in to the meetup system. Professional Coaches are welcomed to join us. Once recognized by the group organizer as a Meetup Coach, one can organize events just like any other EO and charge their own rate. From time to time, the Group would organize community tennis event free to new comers in different district to promote the game. Professionals can take advantage of such events to promote their services. If you haven’t notice, we call ourselves Tennist and our Headline is “Come serve with Tennis Meetup!” Disclaimer: Flushing Meadows Tennis Meetup is an amateur platform that welcomes all tennis players. By joining our events, all participants are deemed to have agreed to the terms and conditions contained in this disclaimer, and agreed to exonerate the organizers and any other participants in the games from any liabilities, claims, including but not limited to liabilities and claims as a result of any injuries or deaths or damages arising thereof.
