    Has anyone played as a guest at http://www.clubterrazas.com.pe/? I'm spending all of March in Lima and have been trying to email these guys but they just don't respond. I don't want to place an international call because my Spanish is not good enough.

    I'm trying to find out if they allow for a one month membership - and the details, like price. Clinics/lessons/pros/hitting partners – I’m traveling alone so I need someone to hit with

    Anyone in Peru who can make a call for me (I'll return the same favor in the US when I'm back) or knows answers to my questions?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    Terazzas seem to be an exclusive membership club. There is a nice club/facility walking distance from terrazas, good clay courts, decent prices and knockers of all levels.

    This is correct based on what I remember from 3 visits to Miraflores. The link shows a “socios” (members) only club but go 1 mile north up the coast and there are about 16 or so beautiful red clay courts right past Parque del Amor overlooking cliffs above the Pacific. (fyi, they also have these 4 or so super quick hard courts I saw mainly dubs played on)
    It costs about 20-25 peruvian bucks (Lempira? lol) per hour, which ain’t bad and you’re got “recogepelotas” ball boys too.

    Little cafe to eat, very nice remodeled locker rooms, the whole nine.

    ^^ Yes, Las Terrazas is private and expensive (for Peru) - they will not allow a one-month membership. The courts referenced in the post above are about a 10 minute walk north of Las Terrazas along the coast, situated next to the Marina Lighthouse (El Faro de La Marina). There are at least 12 public clay courts there right on the ocean, managed by Las Terrazas, with plenty of instructors at the 4.5 level. The courts and instructors are fairly inexpensive. Go in person the first time you go because they don't always answer the phone and you need to pre-pay in cash for everything anyway. I don't know who the head pro is there currently but it's almost certainly someone who speaks English so you might want to ask for him first as the staff don't speak much English. I know a very nice (Swiss/American) couple in Lima that are members at Las Terrazas. The husband plays at about the 4.5 level and his wife is more of an intermediate player, not bad... maybe 3.5? Depending on your level you could play with one of them. Happy to send you contact information...

    Don’t plan on driving on Peru. Get to miraflorez and walk.
