if so, how much? I'm a little rusty so I should be a 3.5 maybe a 4.0 now.
Are you a Sportime member?
Carefree, Long Beach and Rockville racquet have leagues, Glen Head Racquet club as a bunch of 3.5/4.0ish players.
Send me a private e-mail if you want more info. I know everyone on LI, and once the outdoor season starts, I can hook you up with a zillion people to hit with.
It is good to be famous on the internet.
Point Set, Long Beach Tennis Center, Hempstead Lake, and Claytime all have winter leagues. These are all "south shore" spots; don't know anything about north county.
Thanks for the info RH, Jolly I'm gonna send you a message.
Sorry for hijacking, but this seems like the thread to be in.
I just moved from Boston and am dying to find some partners to hit with. Currently in Nassau County.
I just called the Rockville Club, but the season just started on Thursday. I might have missed the deadline.
I'm a 3.0 (guessing) and can probably compete with 4.0 when i'm back in shape.
I'm willing to drive to starting hitting... with anyone.
Look up Eisenhower Park in East Meadows and show up and see if it is your cup of tea. They have started charging for the summer season so it is $5 per court and unless it is busy they won't kick you off after 1 hour but it is early in the season. They will check your driver license to see if you live in Nassau County, don't know if they are charging for parking for non=Nassau resident but this doesn't apply to you.
Thanks Dennis... i'm trying to find some time to head down there... Thanks for the tip.
Long Beach Tennis Center has hitting clinics on Saturday (10a-12p), $50 and Sunday (9:30a - 11:00a) $35 with players that start at 3.0.
It's a great way to meet other people to hit with. Nice club, great coaches. I'm simply a happy customer.
Thanks. I might see you there this weekend. Is there a form to fill out or can I just show up and pay?
I just played my first match with someone from Craigslist. I'm starting to get addicted again.
^^^ Just show up and pay
Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I did a search and this was the only relevant one I could find. I just moved to Oyster Bay and am looking for some winter tennis. I am a 4.0 player and I prefer doubles, but will play singles if that's the only thing available. There are several clubs around me like Sportime Syosset, Glen Head Racquet Club, Huntington Indoor tennis, however I can't seem to find any reviews online (although Huntington is Har-Tru so my knees will thank me). Any recommendations would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance guys!
Sportime in Syosset has har tru and league play I believe. Carefree, according to a friend who used to run clinics is the best tennis club on Long Island but they have hard court. Of course you can drive to the National Tennis Center in Flushing. They have har tru but those courts aren't the best maintained. Their hard courts are as you would expect great.
There is a new place at Christopher Morley park. Check that out.
Thanks for the info pc1! Sportime Syosset is definitely on my radar, and I've also heard of Carefree. This new place you mentioned looks intriguing and I will definitely check it out. Thanks again!
Since my original posts I've moved north but still in Nassau. I do play at both Carefree and Sportime Syosset and think they're great.
Not a league, but Massapequa Sportime runs "Zones" Mondays and Wednesday 9PM-1030PM. Fridays 11am-1230pm.
Essentially king of the hill doubles, no serving.
Quick action, and now that the winter is here, all the college kids have come back.
You'll have a wide range of levels from 3.0s-5.0 playing with wide range of age as well.
Syosset I know runs one as well, but is quite $$ and Massapequa usually has more players.
Call and sign up prior as the max they allow is 30 people.
There are a few Sportimes on LI, and membership gives you access to all of them.
You can check out programs on-line, or call the individual locations to find out what they've got going on.
Once you start showing up, you'll also find out about other groups that take courts at different times that you might get in with, tennis parties, etc., and eventually you'll have plenty of access to play.
