    Are there any good sources for finding tennis clubs and information about them?

    I'm looking to get in some singles match experience at the 4.0-5.5 level (I'm guessing 4.0-4.5 is all I will find though), and wasn't sure where else to turn apart from a club that might have some sort of local league...

    I'm looking in or around Brighton, NY (next door to Rochester), and have a bit of a limited budget... Is my google-fu failing, or is there really nothing affordable (for anyone recently graduated and/or heading back to grad school)??

    Thanks for any help!

    PS: Why did my parents have to pick such a damn expensive sport.

    You're headed for grad school and still play the sport your parents want you to play?

    No, I play the sport that I enjoy the most.

    Oh well.

    it's funny why tennis is regarded by many as a fancy sport. all it needs is a little land , a fishnet , 2 racquets a ball and your done. The british has done a great job making it look like an elite sport when they were still owning half of the world :D

    You don't want to play in a singles league?

    QuietDaze: yeah, something like that was what I was looking for. I've been playing every single day (excluding rain, a few vacations, and a few odd work scheduling issues) at the public courts here and have yet to see anyone who I would even enjoy even hitting with. It's quite sad. I'm guessing the talented players are either in college or playing at clubs?

    Luckily, I have my fiancee who's learned quite quickly, but I only recently started teaching her how to serve and to volley, so playing her is fun, but not the experience I need.
