    I am heading to Playa Del Carmen in a few weeks for a vacation. Does anyone know any players or teaching pros that I can contact to hit with. A vacation with no tennis is not much of a vacation. Thanks for your help!!

    Well, there are public courts and you may find a lot o people playing there. Let me know if you want the address. Also I know a coach but he works for a hotel so I don't think he can help you unless you stay in there.

    I ended up finding a great pro down in Playa. If anyone is interested in a pro down there feel free to message me. The guy was ranked in the 300's (ATP) not too long ago and trained at Bolliteri during his teanage years. He was really top knotch.

    Sorry I missed the posts earlier in the year. I have now vacationed in Playa many times and hit with the same guy I initially spoke about everyday while I'm in town. He is a great guy and a fantastic coach. Send me a PM if you want his contact info.

    Hi there,

    I'm travelling to Playa Del Carmen in November with my boyfriend and we'd love to fit in a few games of tennis. Our hotel doesn't have courts and, as we're travelling around a bit, we won't be taking our own racquets.

    So really I was wondering if any of you can advise on public courts (or private ones we can use for a fee) with the facility to hire racquets and balls too.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Kate

    There is a public sports facility near downtown playa that has courts, but I'm unsure about racquet rentals. I'm not sure what the name of it is, but it is part of a sports complex with soccer and stuff. Most of the courts down there are connected with a hotel so they probably don't rent courts to non-guests.

    I've sent you a message on that.

    Not sure if your stay will extend into December but if so I'll be down there in a month (December 2-9), staying at Paradisus La Perla. Pretty sure I can book a court for you as my guest.


    If someone else will be Playa during this time and wants to hit let me know.

    So I ended up playing 3 times with Francisco at public courts in PDC (Mario Vinuela sport complex) - great guy and gives sound instruction. I enjoyed hitting with him.

    Here is his website http://www.martennis.net/
