    So I am moving from Orlando to Miami for work and I know there's a lot of tennis to be played down there but I was wondering if any has a link to any tennis ladder in the Miami area or leagues...
    Also since I don't know anyone down there I will be looking for people to hit with...
    I'm a 24 year old guy, 4.0 mostly interested in single but down for some doubles.

    Marc, I expect there's a ton of leagues down there. I would check out a few.

    I joined up to a free one and they have a league in Orlando and Miami

    It's a ladder format so you can play everyday, if there's enough players.

    I know many players just sign up to find hitting partners and don't play in the leagues.

    The site is pretty cool. Hope it helps

    Welcome to Miami. Let me know when you make it down here and we can hit. There is quit a bit of good tennis. USTA league is pretty strong. I played a few years on the 4.0 and now on 4.5. I know lot's of people on both leagues. And there are also 3-4 non USTA tournaments/ladders that are well run and a lot of fun.

    Wow, you are living my dream :) I live in Orlando and I want to move to Miami. All I need is to find a job in Miami (and my wife of course) :D

    What Drak said - there are also a number of flex leagues, ladders etc. And you will find players at the various tennis centers.

    Are you moving to Miami proper, Dade, Broward?
