i was just wondering if BTC is open to the public. i know they have some clay courts and im looking for to play on them, since we all know like 99% of tennis courts are hard courts in LA. if it is open to the public, does anyone know the rates for the clay courts per hour?

thanks

Yeah its open to the public, its a Tennis Center, as opposed to a Tennis Club. The rates for the clay used to be $15/hr. Its probably the same now. I'm sure you can the phone # on the web somewhere. Give them a call.

Several links give maps and directions. Couldn't find rates in a brief search.

If you can try and get clay court #1 is better maintained than the 2nd clay court.

Send me an email maybe with a day you want to play and I might be able to setup a first time visitor pass.

reviving a long-dead thread: are you still a member? would you possibly be able to set up a time for me to try out the clay courts? thanks.

You don't have to be a member. It's a public club. If you want to hit on clay - you can do it at anytime. Maybe we should get the LA clay court season under way.

I know it's open to the public, but if he could get me in for free, that'd be nice..

Cool. But I believe even the "members" still have to pay. Just get a discount. And the prices aren't expensive even if you aren't a member.

I don't see anything about members paying extra for the courts.

I could be wrong. I thought the members had to pay a fee for the clay courts as well. i don't know - never been a member. Always just played there and paid or been with a group playing. Even as a non member its butt cheap and very nice courts.

Har-Tru. Not a lot of red clay around. I only know a few places with red in CA.

Where are the reds you know of?

PS - I love the Big Lebowski too. Goodman should have won Best Supporting Actor: "Donny, you're out of your element."

PPS - What NTRP are you?

Gotta love Lebowski...I'm mad - I had to miss the Lebowskifest this year - was out of town.

"Smokey my friend, you're entering a world of pain."

The only red clay close by I know about are out at Sherwood CC

And there are some out in Ventura at the Pierpoint Racket club - red classic clay I think. Never hit on those.

Level-wise...I can hold my own with pretty much anyone.

DNS, have you hit at Sherwood; does Sherwood let non-members in? I'd heard it was very private. I also heard Lacosta has red clay and since it's a resort is open to the public.

Sherwood is private - so need to know someone- be a guest etc. Yes, I've hit there. Great place. I've never hit at La Costa - so I can't say for sure - but that sounds right.

My apologies for hijacking this thread for a moment but Shade, do you have anything to input in the Cambria CA thread? You sound like you know the area pretty well.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

Your "I can handle myself" comment when I asked a fairly straightforward question about your NTRP reminded me of the Tennis Mag story about the ringer, ex D-I players beating down 4.5's in USTA leagues/tourneys. You sound like a cool guy - tell me that's not you.

We should reserve those two Har-Tru courts at Burbank and have a TW get-together.

Count me in. I'd love to play on the grass courts at Sherwood.
I'm down for the Har-Tru courts at Burbank also.

I'll check with my connections as well - see if they still stand up.

Who me? Never...What do you say we put a little cash on the game, just to make it more interesting, huh?

Just kidding. I used to play quite a bit back in the day. Been getting back into it lately but life tends to get in the way sometimes. Been hitting with a couple strong guys and the boys out at UCLA, etc...Getting it back. Was actually out in Straus Stadium all morning till just a little while ago.

Let's do it. Get the LA clay court season underway...

I understand the 1st part. Bought a ball machine for just that reason - as people get further over the age of 24, the harder it is to get people to commit and show up - get too many "the boss just stopped at my desk..." calls. The ball machine is limiting - and gives one a false sense of awesomeness - but it's better than sitting at home watching 'Murphy's Guide to...' on Tennis Channel.

Come on, say you're a 5.0 - you'll feel better. Some of us lowly 4.0's, 4.5's may ask you for an autograph and picture! :)

I'm down for the Har-Tru courts at Burbank also.I'll call the Burbank place and see what they say about us 'appropriating' the both Har-Tru courts for a few hrs. Would have been cool to do it before RG started - oh, well.

Dang! An LA Meet Up but on clay this time sounds cool and could be fun. Andulka Park in Riverside has a brand new Har-Tru court for $12 a hour. Kinda tough to get the LA guys out here in the IE tho. LOL
