What we're about

Tennis anyone?

We meet regularly on the Peninsula to play tennis. Players of all levels are welcome, from casual players to highly-ranked former competitive players.

All attempts will be made to match up players of similar abilities. At our tennis events, you can play singles, doubles, or just hit and do drills.

Though we're interested in getting progressively better, we don't take ourselves too seriously.

Our objectives are to get a good workout, improve our tennis skills, meet other tennis players, make friends, and have fun!

We have regular tennis events every week. We also hold occasional TGIF social mixer/networking events in conjunction with other meetup groups.

All of our events offer fun, community, and fellowship. All of our events are free and open to all.

Saturday Night Live Drop-In Tennis

Palo Alto High School

This event is largely self-organized. Show up, introduce yourself, and get started! Usually all the courts are wide open Friday and Saturday nights. There's room for lots of people with no waiting. Singles, doubles, drills....whatever you want to do, there's usually an open court. However, if the courts are full, we can always find some open courts at Stanford. Enter the courts on the far right. We'll try and get the first few courts. If those courts are taken, we'll get on any available court, including the courts closest to El Camino Real. Be proactive and introduce yourself to other players, get on a court, and organize yourselves. Drop-in for singles, doubles, or just hitting and doing drills. Most players who show up are usually pretty consistent, strong players. Most players are 3.5 and up. Though we have good players who are always trying to improve their skills, most attendees don't take themselves too seriously. : - ) We'll try to match up players according to playing ability. We usually rotate frequently so you'll get to play with as many people as possible. This is a drop-in event where tennis players can get a good workout and meet other tennis players in a fun, non-competitive social environment. Again, we do have some regulars who are very good players, though, if you are looking for a great hitting session! Please bring some tennis balls. It's okay if you have to come late. Don't be shy -- go up and introduce yourself. Most players will be glad to have you rotate in if everyone is already playing. Please be flexible, friendly, and have fun! See you at the courts! Please RSVP "Yes" only if you will be attending. If you RSVP "Yes" and find out later that you cannot make it, please adjust your RSVP response accordingly. Rain cancels the event. https://www.thelifeyoucansave.org/ We sometimes head to Starbucks or Crepevine afterwards for socializing, networking, and fellowship. http://www.yelp.com/biz/starbucks-palo-alto-7 http://www.yelp.com/biz/crepevine-palo-alto Check out the premier health club and spa in Silicon Valley! https://www.equinox.com/referrals/1776539?mrfcid=ios_message_150giftcard

Tennis at Nealon Park

Location visible to members

Come out for some casual, friendly tennis. There are five lighted courts at this facility. Two are usually used by the city. These courts require a key, so attendees who are Menlo Park residents with a key will open up and get set up. Due to space limitations, the max number of attendees is eight. Please only RSVP if you will be attending. If you RSVP "Yes" and find out later that you cannot attend, please adjust your RSVP response accordingly. See you on the courts!
