What we're about

Tennis at Harper College! Hiking in the Northwest Suburbs! Exercise is the staff of life and doing it with people you like makes it all the more enjoyable. Even better is doing these things with a group of active, friendly people. Come on out, we'll be happy to greet you and meet you. Many people have asked about skill levels to play tennis with the group. Well here they are:

1- Know the rules of the game

2- Be able to serve the ball

3- Be able to return the ball

We do not just hit the ball. We play competitive games with all levels of play. So if you have never played then a tennis class first would be advised.

Rules for hiking - Be able to walk the distance we plan to hike

And now we have added bowling, bocce, trivia night and social events, with more to come!

And if you like what you see, we simply ask for a $5.00 a year fee to help support the meetup.

So come on out and enjoy the fun! I'll see you at the next event. Bob
