👫 This tennis meetup is for new/beginner level players with zero to very minimal experience and takes place every Tuesday.
⛔ We need a minimum of 4 players. Please RSVP early, so others will be encouraged to come out as well. Please keep in mind, this is not an instruction based coaching event. It's for players that are completely starting out and want to get familiar with the basics of the game, so if you're expecting a competitive level tennis match, this group is not for you. Hosts in this event reserve the right to redirect players to other tennis events to match the appropriate skill level of play.
Every thought about joining a beginner level tennis group to see, if the sport is for you? Then this is your group! Tennis is not only a good way to make new friends, but a great way to stay in shape and have fun while doing so! This group was created from the ground up for new and beginner level players with little to no experience. Players in this group will be focusing on the fundamentals of the game, keeping the ball on the court and maintaining a rally amongst other players. This is a self-taught learning group with other players who are starting out as well, so please don't be intimidated to come out.
This location has racquetball courts to practice your strokes, so those who have never hit a ball before, this location is highly preferable as you can play at your own pace by hitting against the ball with others. Many players are self-taught. Practicing against a wall is perfect for developing hand/eye coordination and muscle memory.

There may also be extra racquets for use if you don't have your own. Please let us know in the comment section if you need to borrow a racquet and please be sure to return them back to the host at the end of the night. It can be easily discouraging to learn a new skill on your own, but it's always more fun learning in a group setting!
😀 PLEASE BE SURE TO RSVP and refrain from showing up to the event, if you're not on the RSVP list as it would be unfair to members on the waiting list. All events are re-evaluated each week and are added/removed based on demand, so please be sure to RSVP to let us know to keep the event on the calendar. When RSVP numbers are low, please contact the host(s) to confirm the event is still taking place.
