Currently, TVTA has drop-ins on Tues and Thurs at Dougherty HS. Since our members are widespread across Tri-Valley, I am considering the option to add other drop-ins locations for weekdays, Mon, Wed and even the weekend play in Danville (Osage), Pleasanton (Muirwood), Dublin (Emerald Glen) or Livermore (Robert). I will need a few facilitators on my behalf until the core groups are formed. Let me know what you think.

Although I might not take advantage of the extra locations (because I'm so close to DVHS) I think it'll be much appreciated by other folks coming from elsewhere.
If multiple locations are made available, maybe we can have later hours on different nights???? The reason I don;t show up on Thurs evening is because I can never get there until after 7:30 or so......after most have gone home. Just a thought.
Hi Rick, I made a list of sites, public parks and schools in the 4 neighboring towns of Danville, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore. As I expected not many have lights. Right now, these are the ones I can think of:
Brighton Park 2 courts w/ lights
Emerald Glen 4 courts w/ lights
Fallon Sports Park 4 courts w/ lights
Diablo Vista Park 2 courts w/ lightsSan Ramon Valley High 6 courts w/ lights
Robert Livermore Park 4 courts w/ lights
Pleasanton Tennis Center 10 courts w/ lights (hourly fee)
Athan Downs 4 courts w/lights
Cal High 6 courts, 3 w/ lights
Central Park 3 courts w/ lights
Dougherty High 8 courts w/ lights
It is definitely an idea whose time has come. As other users have pointed out, do choose locations that have features like easy availability of courts (which i think means a min of 6 courts to start with) and good lighting.
I just shifted to a place near the San Ramon tennis courts and aquatic pool. It has 6 courts but not sure on the lights front. Did you think of that location?
I definitely like the idea as it has become difficult to make it over to DVHS; yet it would be simple to show up in Livermore at the park. So if there are others from Livermore who are interested, I'd love to join that group. Thanks, Nick
Any evening in Livermore would work for me; I just can't make it to DVHS in a timely manner to be able to continue joining you there on time. But Livermore works great as it's home.
