Tennis in San Diego North County

HI All,

We are considering moving to San Marcos, CA. Anyhow, I have been searching online, and have not found very many tennis clubs in San Marcos, just one outdoor public facility. Maybe I am looking in the wrong places. But my question is: Is there a lot of tennis in the San Marcos area? That is one of the main reasons for moving from the East Coast, so we can play outdoors year around, instead of playing indoors 9 months out of the year, along with the cost of indoor court time. Thanks!

You will have zero issues finding tennis games in greater San Diego County and you'll have plenty of options specifically in North County as well. With very few exceptions, there is no better place for tennis than San Diego.

Your info says CT - didn't know May and Sept were that bad. I grew up in PA; we got out in March (sometimes it was 72 one day and 48 the next) - and played until mid-Oct.

But yes, So Cal has awesome weather. There were a few mornings in the winter here that were < 50 and I had to wear warm up pants. And near the ocean in some communities you'll get the 'marine layer' that will make it cooler.

So if you can afford it - and aren't afraid of earthquakes - come on out.

Is there anyone who is not afraid of earthquakes?
 
Lots of tennis around here. Plenty of leagues as well.

Head2head seems to draw mostly North county players which might be a great place for you to start. I believe it is still a free league.

Tennisleague.com is more spread but more players based centrally and seems to get the most participants compared to the other two.

Both these leagues are schedule matches at your convenience and players with the most wins/better records play an elimination tournament at the end of the season.

Ultimate tennis(K-Swiss) is similar with the elimination playoffs but you have a set opponent for each week of the season that you work out a match day and time for that week with some leeway regarding scheduling.

Haven't played the usta leagues or any doubles leagues but I still enjoy doubles. Roughly 1 ntrp tournament each month here and sometimes 2 during the summer months.

Tennisleague.com has a great tennis court map on their site as well
