    I arrived in Prague last night and plan to stay a few days up to a couple weeks. Where can I play? Could I pick up a game? Clay would be great. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I play at a 4.5-5.0 level, although jet lagged probably closer to 2.0.
    Thanks!

    There are some terrific red clay courts at Visherad (may have spelled it incorrectly), about a 5 min walk from the metro stop. There in a beautiful park, which is also where Prague was originally settled. Take a walk around if you get there.

    There's an attendant at the courts--ask him if he can find a game for you. Good luck.

    Looks like the City Park may be your best bet for tennis in Prague.

    Thanks for the advice. I went to Cesky Lawn Tennis Club - it was quite close to my hotel. It was great to play on clay (ignore the name of the club). This won't work for pick up, though, and was fairly expensive. Perhaps a smaller city would be better. Any ideas for a great place to visit and play tennis? I've got a week or so of free time and would love to combine two of my favourite things to do: tennis and travel.

    Behind the giant metronome along the banks of the river is a park with lots of hard courts.

    Prague has been great. I've been in touch and played with some great TT people and some of their local friends. There are a lot of small clubs in Prague where you can rent courts for about 10 euros/hour. The courts in Lena Park are at a historic club to the right of giant metronome that has replaced a large statue of Stalin - a lot of history there worth checking out even if you don't play tennis.
