    I will be in Oahu, Waikiki from Dec 19-Jan 1, anyone know the best place to find partners and the best club/public courts. I am a very solid 4.0.

    Thanks!

    Diamond Head Tennis Center might be your best bet. 3908 Paki Ave. 10 hard courts, and alot of players. I've love to meet you there, but I'll be spending Xmas in ice cold Philadelphia....

    I live in Hawaii for 8 years. Ala Moana has great outdoor courts. Try not to go there in the early mornings though because it gets taken over by old people. Actually that applies to most courts in Hawaii. Diamond Head tennis center has tons of courts, but no lights and most of the courts are in pretty bad shape. Most public high schools have courts available as well. I used to play at Hokulani Elementary School's courts, which isn't too far from Waikiki. They are in great shape and there's a swimming pool right next door. The only downside is there are only two courts and a lot of times, a group of like 12 people will show up with coolers/food and just camp there all day.
