Looking to join a club and narrowed it down to 2 but they are not ideal. Maybe there are some I am over looking? 1. Berkeley Tennis Club. Its close and the hours are great, but looks like a long wait and you have to know someone there to sponsor you. Anyone know how much it costs? Or how to get in if you know no one? 2. Chabot Canyon- I would have to drive but it is affordable and I think I could just join without needing a sponsor. But the hours suck. I need to get in early and they open at 9am. Any thoughts or clubs I am missing? Ideally I could go play in the mornings with a club member or the ball machine. The public courts here suck. Sure there are some nice ones and well there are some good players but it is hard sometimes to get a court! What is worse is that there is absolutely ZERO court management. Most public courts have some kind of system from switching on the hour when people are waiting to placing a racket on a board to designate who is next after an hour wait. Local courts have nothing like that and people seem to play forever. I cant wait for that, I just need to go play and then leave.
