    Hello,

    Me and a friend will travel by car from LA to NY in October and are aiming to play everyday.

    I found the site Tennis Maps, but it doesn´t cover Alabama, Lousiana and Baltimore.

    Is there anyone that have information any good sites?

    All the best,
    The Swede

    Most of the high schools have courts. You could try mapquest and it should highlight schools for you.

    Thank you!
    I´ll probably find this tip most useful.

    Baltimore isn't too great for public courts, you want to go to Catonsville community college which is about 5 minutes outside of the city, that's your best bet.

    Satellite view (google) should show you where and how many courts. :)

    thanks,

    If you venture through Allentown, PA (2 hours west of NYC via Interstate 78) feel free to hit me up. I belong to both a red clay club and an indoor club.

    I think you would find my site - CourtCoverage.com - useful. It lists tennis facilities throughout the U.S. Not a complete listing yet, but I'm working on it. Several of the facilities have also been reviewed by players, so that might help you narrow your choices (and if you feel up to reviewing the courts you play along the way that would be terrific).

    Unfortunately, I haven't yet figured out how to incorporate Google maps into my site (but I'm working on it). I do list addresses for each facility though and have added a "Map It" feature, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding the courts.

    Sounds like a great road trip ... hope you have a blast.

    The site I listed has Google maps embedded into it; that being said, penpal's "Map It" feature works very well (it links to Google maps).
