    Hi all - I'm a total beginner - just started playing last week, and I'm hoping to find some fellow beginners to practice with (or better players who are very patient and/or desperate for hitting partners).

    I work at UC Davis, so lunch time at the UCD courts would be ideal, but evenings would work as well. I live in Sacramento so I can also play there in the evenings or weekends.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I recommend checking out the UC Davis Tennis Club, there are people of all levels at the hit arounds on Fridays from 5:30-7:00ish.

    Hey Scott,

    You've probably thought of this already, but you may want to look around for a backboard/wall as well (or even a racquetball court if you have access to one-- maybe at a UCD gym?).

    If you're practicing with a fellow beginner you may find yourself spending a lot of your time picking up balls, or bunting the ball back and forth to keep the rally going. You'll get more reps from using a wall (and you won't have to worry about arranging a time with someone else).

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Check with Dale Hersch at the High School/Community Courts on 14th Street. He might be able to help set you up with someone in the Davis Tennis Club.
