    Balboa Park

    Best tennis in key west is at Balboa Park, just show up with your gear have a seat and they will invite you in for a match. Best Pick up Tennis I have seen. Lots of older players but enough competition for a 3.5 player. Where ya staying in Key west???

    Joe, would you recommend any less expensive lodging? Otherwise I have to hook up at Hostel.

    Pretty expenive

    This time of year it's not cheap. everything about $120 a night. There are a couple hostels there . never stayed there but they look clean. I lways go there on business and my employer gets the rooms. By the way there are usually tennis players at the courts at 8 am for a couple hours and then at 4:30 pm. sometimes you can find somebody to play in between those hours. Good luck and have fun, a really serious party town!!!

    Joe, I have great time at Bayview Park. Walk-in there put down my names and just wait for my turn. A guy by the name Chris, who is a good player about 5.0 and Benny, Asian American is hilarious. Thank again for direction.
