    No, but I can tell you about Chennai. I play there every summer for a month.

    If there is tennis in Goa you probably have to drop acid to get in on it.

    In goa, there are a couple of clubs in Panaji. The one with the cricket grounds next to the ocean, has a couple of decent tennis courts. I think it was Rs 50 ($1) to play there when I visited Goa 2 years back.

    The other club is opposite miramar beach. It has 1 tennis court with lights, but the court is not in good shape..

    1. Chennai - Effed up place! Full of losers playing cricket, without a single zombie in the national team.
    2. Mumbai - You can play at MSLTA courts in Colaba. I have played there a couple of times. A bit expensive for a non-member (~25 USD for an hour is for local standards). You could have a hitting partner as well as couple of ball boys for that amount! Google for contact info.
    3. Goa - It is carnival time now. And that means booze, music, dance, weed, acid and humping. It is going to look a bit odd for a lone guy practicing serves!

    I've never been to Goa, but maybe you'll find some tennis there. I know 6 people from Goa and 4 of them play tennis. Booze, music, dance, weed, acid, and humping. Sign me up!
