any one know any good tennis clubs in seattle?
You answered your own question in a prior posts. The one you left out was the Seattle Tennis Club = 10 wait list & $$$$$$. Nordstrom Tennis Ctr = for Alumi/students.
who wants to wait ten years to get in to a tennis club and where do u play becasue central park is the best inthe area
I agree the Central Pk is the best - I play about 3 miles down the road. For indoor I'm either at Amy Yee-Robinswood-Nordstrom or the Bellevue Club.
how much are clubs in seattle? i live in shoreline btw. maybe sometime we can gather some people and play somewhere, thatd be cool.
EDIT: ok i looked at the website for central park. certainly too rich for my blood at the moment. once i get a job i can probably do it.
If you live in Shoreline, there are several just north of you - Forest Crest in Mountlake Terrace, Harbor Square in Edmonds and Columbia Athletic Club in South Everett.
Depends on where in "Seattle" But uh... all the ones mentioned above would be OK except for seattle tennis club, unless you are a BALLER, and by that I mean a lot of money, then go for it. Seattle tennis club has a great view of lake washington but like the guy said up there, buttloads of money. If you are farther south, Boeing employees tennis club and bally's.
hey guys, i'm from washington too. That'd be cool if we can get a group with all the people from seattle/bellevue to play with each other. I usually play at UW and sometimes the Nordstrom Tennis Center. I play in Bellevue too. Let me know if you wanna meet up.
lets play dude. i have friends that go to UW. a couple of them go to wednesday's tennis club, do you go to that?
What level (ntrp) are you tour 90 and shootermcmarco.
i don't do the tennis club on wednesday, i just play for fun. I'm about a 3.5 on bad days to 4.0. But we should do it soon before school starts!
I was getting ready to make another thread with this exact same title.
Once the middle of May arrives I will be departing for Seattle, so it goes without saying that I will need a bit of help finding tennis.
Hopefully I will have the pleasure of hitting with a few of you.
i am a 4.0-4.5 top junior in the northwest
i think it would be fun if u guys would be willing to play with a kid(13)
where in seattle are you located? i'm in shoreline btw
What club do you at, schaeffer.
Wow! I was about to do the same... Im moving to Seattle/Bellvue in the middle of May too. I took a look at the Central Park brochure... and even though its seems like a great facility, its a ripoff.
How busy is Nordstrom, specially in the winters? I have to find an apartment close to a good indoor facility because of the wet weather
It would be great to get together and play in the summer... do you guys play in the USTA league
Im a 4.5, baseliner
n6.1 95, gosen arramix pro 16 61lbs x Livewire xp 16, 59lbs
Btw guys, I found this forum... looks useful
I play at central park. one of these days when the weather is good we could play on the out door courts at the uw.
Also one of you said central park was a rip off. IT might seem like that from first glance. but there are no court fees you can play as much as you want. and the courts and the club is the second best in the area(seattle tennis club is first),
It was I. I guess you may have a point... I should do a cost benefit analysis... when an equity based membership pays off at Central Park. So since the Seattle Tennis club is better, it must be more expensive right? Any ball park figures? And did someone here mention theres a 10 yr wait to get in?
I think STC is more of a gentleman's club, old people going around, luxury tennis club. But I may be wrong since I've never actually been there but from what I heard from friends.
ya that is right. there are some players there but its more the seattle elite.
i wish i could afford that place, hehe. maybe once i get a job its something i could try out.
You will have to wait on the 10 year waiting list first.
some nice weather recently, we should really get some people and play somewhere
what about the uw or in bellevue grasslawn park
tennis in the redmond area
would anyone like to hit... Im a 4.0 - 4.5 in the redmond area and am up for playing at grasslawn.
i'd play with ya, but i dunno how to get there. i live in shoreline btw
cool, i'm already part of the KCTL, or kitsap county tennis league.
Do you guys know of a place where I can do pickup games... at UW maybe?
Its frustrating not being able to play...
sorry.. duplicate post..
Anyone interested in setting up some doubles (4.0-4.5) ? I'll be in town from the 2nd to 16th on business and would love to play some doubles in the Seattle area.
I'd love to, but I'm the world's worst doubles player (I'd probably be rated 2.5 in dubs) and there's a tournament I'm probably going to be playing during that time too. If either of these change, I'll give a shout.
Do you have the tourney details? Is it a USTA event? Thanks . . .
Oops, I looked and it is happening right after you leave. Here it is:
So, are you in for just hitting, or do you want to play some competitive 4.0/4.5 doubles? I'm entering just for the experience of getting my lunch handed to me (double bagels) but it's later than I thought so I should have some time to hit when you're in town.
I don't have the wheels or a patient mindset like I use to, to play singles anymore since I have been playing doubles for so long. Just get 3 of your friends together we'll play a friendly game of doubles. Thanks man . . .
I am up for some double Midlife, you know how to contact me. Looking for a new job so will have free time on hand if not going for interviews
Tennis in Seattle? That must be where Safin learned. Him and his dark moods... all too resemblant of myself.
Cool TennisP13 . . . thats 3 we just need 1 more . . .
kkh713x, welcome to the Seattle area. I haven't tried to arrange anything since I'm nursing some overuse injuries from playing the tournament. I'm dealing with some tender knees and ankles, and I pulled something in my serving shoulder. The ravages of old age.
I'll see how I'm doing after the weekend and see if I can put something together.
Sounds good. Weather has been iffy to say the least. Anyone have access to any indoor courts that want to hit sometime this week? I am free after 6:30 pm everyday pretty much . . .
hi guys, we have a group that plays in kitsap too / port orchard /bremerton
I just played a league match at the Bainbridge Athletic Club. Nice, new facility, with five indoor courts (two in a permanent bubble). They're purple and green, and almost identical in speed to the ones at the Nordstrom Tennis Center.
If you don't see a club that should be there, e-mail us at the feedback address below so we can add it.
That's a cool club... last time we played a league match there @ 7:30PM and it was on the same night as a Mariners game... almost missed the ferry
Finished the match soon enough to enjoy beer before catching the last boat home.
Is there anyone playing in the Memorial Day tournament in Bremerton???
Hmm I might do it, not sure yet, depending on work deadlines
When's the deadline for that tourney?
If any of you are willing to drive into the renton area, I can play you. Singles or dubs, 3.5-4.0 lvl, in my lower 20s. PM or email me.
Tennis in the University District
With school winding down, I'm gonna have more time to play. Wondering if there's any 4.0-4.5 players near the University District wanting to play as a hitting partner over the summer.
Is it free to play @ UW?
