What is Social Tennis?

Social Tennis is for everyone! Whether you are new to tennis, just coming back to playing, or for more experienced players who want to play tennis without the structure of USTA leagues. 

Each week, intermediate & advanced sessions have an instructor on court to organize live match play, pick the best play structure, and provide tips to improve your game or strokes. Bring water & your own racquet.

The beginner New to Tennis sessions are taught by pros that teach players tennis from the ground up. Racquets are provided for the beginner sessions, just bring a water bottle.

Tennis balls are provided for all sessions. Come out and have fun!

For more information, including how to self-rate online without a USTA membership, contact Lori Griffel.
