Another pinoy here. We have a tennis association in Union City, CA which is predominantly pinoys and pinays. Visit our site and sign our guest book. The URL is www.uctaonline.com. If you happen to be around Union City, come by for a hit. There are players of different NTRP levels there almost all the time. Feel free to introduce yourself to whoever you find there. The folks there are quite friendly (not just to kababayans).

If you belong to something similar, please post the URL. It is always nice to be able find a place to play when you are not at your "home" courts.

I might just come up there and check it out. I haven't played in a very long time and I need to get back my timing.

Feel free to drop in. The park we play out of has 6 lighted courts and a U shaped wall which is perfect for warming up while waiting for a court. When you get there just start doing some walling if there are no courts available or you don't have someone to hit with. Eventually, someone will approach you specially if you seem friendly. :)

What are the days and times people are usually there? Are you out there often?

On the weekends there's always players at least until noon. I don't go there every weekend but like what I said, there's always a bunch of friendly players there who are more than happy to accommodate drop ins.

There are some who play at Arroyo but the majority is at Dyer. That's where the league teams are based too. There are also guys who play at Mt. Eden in Hayward. You and your peers are welcome to drop by. I don't know what skill level you are but you should be able to find a good match. Most people play doubles though but the skill level goes from 2.5 - 4.5. From time to time a 5.0 will show up (very rare though).

Give Il Mostro(a SoCal poster) a shout out here since he vacations in Davao a lot. Maybe you guys can meet up and play some tennis.
unfortunately, i haven't ever played tennis...but i adore the sport and would want to try it out...
 
Where do you play in Carson? Veteran's Park?
Calas Park, Victoria Park, Lomita Park, and if all else fails, I go to a gated subdivision near Cal State Dominguez Hills where we could stay until 10pm.

Strangely enough we haven't played at Veterans. Maybe because it's always full.

yeah I think the old flips in the morning have those two courts til nightfall. Try to go to silverado or banning park, I've played with good pinoys there.
 
I haven't been to Silverado. Banning park I went there also but it's full both times we went there. Also, at Wilson Park, I saw lots of good people there. I haven't played with anybody else other than my friends as I'm still trying to practice more on my game.

Do you know any clay courts near here?

Yes actually, there are 3-4 clay courts at the Racquet Club of Irvine (RCI). Its a very expensive tennis club, you gotta be a high level junior or pro to play there for free. I got to play there a few times while in the Graziano Tennis Academy.

jr tennis players wanted for high school competition

any jr filipino tennis players in the philippines looking to come here (to the US) as a foreign exchange student play high school tennis, a few jr tournaments and probably land a college tennis scholarship? there is a high school team here in washington in a rebuilding stage here needing tennis players after a brand new high school opened up last year and practically took all of the players. it was the boundary rule.
in short we definitely need some players that are ranked mid level in the boys and girls 14's in the philippines. they will be coming in as freshmen or sophomores. you must have your travel documents ready. i will see what i can do here once i see an interest from there. there are no guarantees during the processing. but if you make it through the red tape. i can guarantee you a spot on the team and you will start. send me a PM if you are interested.
