Every now and then I hear some people here suggest going to tennis clubs, where you can hit balls with many other people and make new friends. I checked. Within 30 miles of where I live, there is only one, and the membership costs $2500+!!!! WTF? Is this normal for a tennis club cost? My SCCA membership only costs me $70 and I can save tons of money when attending AutoX events. Why tennis is so expensive? How much do you pay your tennis club?
