    I'm going there for AutoCAD school September 19-21 and could hit either Monday eve or Tuesday eve anytime after 5:30. The Lancaster City Park looks like it is a pretty darn decent facility, but anywhere in the area would be fine.

    I am not surprised that there no replies. I have never heard of Lancaster being a hotbed of tennis. Although i thought it would be worth checking, as a quick scan on Google Earth showed several sets of public courts.

    Anyone have any good ideas for how to drum up a game? Otherwise, i'll have to bring my racketball racket and hit the challenge court at the club across the street from my hotel.

    Well i didn't have any luck setting up tennis last time, but why not try again as it is easy to do. Bye the way, the racketball we very fun. I split games with a guy who seemed like a pretty good player.

    Going to be in Lancaster, CA and can play on Monday eve, Nov 28. Antelope Valley Country Club or City Park would be good. 4.5 or up!

    I am a registered civil engineer and i'm doing AutoCAD Land Desktop Civil Design training. Its pretty cool. We take a 3D model of a site, supplied by surveyor, then do all the grading, road design, drainage, utilities, etc. to create the plans for the city to do permitting and for the contractor to construct. I am trying to improve my skill at doing the design in the "smart" way using the software functionality, instead of doing the brut force method.

    Old thread, but thought I'd respond anyway.

    I moved from Simi Valley to Palmdale about three years ago. My greatest frustration is that there is not any type of organized tennis scene in the Antelope Valley. I have to drive back to the San Fernando Valley for any league play. There are some nice facilities in the Antelope Valley, but NOBODY plays! Frustrating.

    Love the housing prices, and the weather has turned out to be much better than I expected. Gets cold in the winter and is only too hot to play tennis for about three weeks of the year. Otherwise, perfect weather for tennis.

    I should have never left Simi Valley. Lot's of tennis in that area.
