    Any ballers out there? I'll be staying at Lakeway Resort & Spa on Lake Travis in Austin.
    I'll be there Wednesday (May 16) thru Friday (May 18) late afternoon.

    Plenty of tennis players in Austin, a lot of good ones too. Def check out/hit at world of tennis during your stay.

    I'm staying at a hotel/resort that's associated with World of Tennis, I'll certainly check it out. Is it a pick up a game or do they set you up?

    No idea, but there are plenty of good players in lakeway that I'm sure would be willing to hit around.

    They can set you up and usually have a solid group of players at the World of Tennis - just FYI the hourly court costs are steep......for outdoor its like $20 per hour plus a fee of $10 or $11 per guest. As there are locals who are members and live in the area around and in Lakeway ive never had issues getting matched up......also the Memorial week is a huge holiday for the resort as a whole and the place should be close to full.

    Reviving an old thread - thinking about traveling to Austin for 3-4 nights for a vacation with my wife in late September. Would be able to hit a couple of times out there...early 40s, 4.0. Was thinking about Barton Creek resort, but read mixed things. Curious about anyone's input as to how the resort is, including the tennis.
    Thanks!

    I can only say that I have played at Barton Creek several times and the courts are nice, not sure about the spa and the rest of it, but it's a nice facility. September is a great time to visit Central Texas as well, you'll still be able to swim.

    If you're willing to travel get yourself booked onto the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, they do really great adult programs!

    It's in a town not far from San Antonio called New Braunfels, about an hours drive outta Austin
