    Wherever I go, there I am...
    Depends on where you play.... Mostly hard courts.

    Unless you know someone at one of the clubs, such as the American Club, your best bet may be Victoria Park near Causeway Bay. Word of warning-- don't show up alone. It's better if you can arrange a hit with someone because there seem to be very few "stragglers" looking for hits.

    Another option may be to hit at one of the hotels. There are several but court fees can get pricey (US$60+/hr). There's one at Causeway Bay (Regent?) where the court is on the roof under a bubble; the pros there are usually Brit expats.

    Good luck... If memory serves me right, there were several HK residents on this board (hlkfung?) who may be prowling...
