    Hi everyone,


    I just moved to SF and I'm looking for somebody to play tennis with.

    I'm a 21 year old male and I played tennis in college, and hopefully there's somebody in the area that wants to play.


    If you're interested, email me at: fcrvenkovic@gmail.com



    Thanks,


    Filip

    I'm not your level any more, and live 30 miles away in SanPablo.
    For good pickup tennis, GoldenGatePark is one of the best, but you have to filter thru the 3.5's and rec players before you attract your level of player. Best during the week, after 10AM, hang around with your best gear and you should be able to get a game within a couple days, depending how bad the weather is, and who shows.
    Weekends, GGPk is pretty worthless for pickup, as the weekender rich crowd infests those 22 courts. However, late PM's, a crowd of 4.0 doubles shows up for free court 23, and you can rotate in and dominate (both weekends and weekdays}.
    Both Marina and JuliusKahn have good doubles on weekends, certainly 4.5, but timing is difficult, as the crowd tends to show late or early depending on what ...?
    Check CityCollege of SF or SFState, like 15 courts at CCSF and 18 at SFState. DoloresPark on weekend PM's can have 4.0 pickup doubs.
    Where are you living in the City?

    Thanks for the advice!

    I'm currently staying with a friend on Market St until I find my own place, but I have a car so getting around isn't difficult.

    I'll check out GGP on Saturday, it's impossible to go during the weekdays because of work, maybe after 6PM but I'll stick with weekends for now! Thanks again

    I would offer to hit with you, but I am a 3.5-4.0 and haven't picked up a racket since January.

    It seems us around SanFrancisco just suck at tennis.
