I usually play in the Valley, but I'm wondering where some good courts are in and around LA. Anybody have suggestions? Based on locations, number of courts, public or not, lights, price...unfortunately, paying for court time is a sad fact one needs to live with out here. Are there any large public tennis facilities? If you know of any or have a preference, list them below. And if anybody wants to hit, give me a holler...

Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Moved here from the east coast, where I was very involved in my tennis community. Started playing in high school, played for the team there, as well as our college club team. During all this time I worked as a coach both for the city and for private clubs, where I was very proud to be the coach of three separate teams, each winning the city championships!!! Kids rule, but anyways, I've slowed down in my play over the past couple years due to injuries and a busy schedule, but now I'm looking to get back into it. UPDATE: I haven't been on here in a while due to working a long and hectic work schedule, but I've decided to rededicate myself and start playing a bit more tennis, both for fun and for my health. Sorry to those I haven't responded to in the past, but let me know if you're interested. Weekends work best as I work long days. :-)

I'm free during the day at times or in the evening. I'm free tomorrow and possibly today, if you want to try and play. Give me a call 818/306-7212.
I'm a 3.5-4.0 and can run down balls and hit with good pace.
