    I am going to be living in Granada for about five months this spring and am wondering what I should do to be able to play tennis while I am over there.

    Generally, I am wondering: Are there many public tennis courts in Spain, or do you have to join a private club? If you have to join a club, are there any skill requirments? Are there courts where you can pay a small fee each time that you play?,etc.

    I am sure that I will find out most of this information once I get over there, but I would like to have at least some insight before I fly over.

    Any input from Spaniards or anyone who has lived in Spain would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I think it`s wise for you to join a private club. Most of the times there aren`t skill requirements, at least I`ve never heard of them. There aren`t many public courts. The main surface is clay, so get yourself some decent CLAY shoes.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Do you by any chance know how expensive a club membership would be?
