Thank you for your interest in Adult Social programming! Your support and feedback is incredibly important as we continue to create the most developmentally appropriate tennis experiences.
Adult Social Leagues and Team Up Events are new programs offering low pressure environments for adults of all ages to experience tennis for the first time or to get reintroduced to tennis. These programs are great opportunities to play with your friends no matter what level of tennis experience you have and socialize with new people in your community.
These programs and their supporting resources will help you deliver the sport of tennis to adults looking for a fun and relaxed tennis experience, which can lead to a lifelong love of tennis!
Local Provider Testimonials
Sandra Mason - "In Richmond, VA we've introduced a weekly "match play" tennis program for beginners. Just show up and play a fun but competitive match with players of similar skill levels. No assigned partners; players just switch around and keep count of the # of games won each session. At the end of the 4th session, a king and queen of the court will be awarded a special prize package and a players party with adult beverages for everyone.. Fun with new friends and food. What better way to spend an evening?!"
Phillip Kim - "The Social Play events we host at our Azusa Tennis program is a great way to create an entry point for new and returning tennis players invited by their friends. With a focus on a fun, positive experience, we are seeing a lot of returning players who want more."
Amanda Friday - "Social leagues serve as a great in-between bridge of casual players, competitive players, old and new. Social leagues don't care if you're a 4.5 or an 0.0, red ballin' machine, in a wheelchair, pregnant, or just bought a racquet - there's a spot for you! We design our leagues to attract the most people possible with easy formats, food, drinks, childcare, and an opportunity to socialize after. Ask what the players want and make it happen. They'll keep coming back for more."
Charles Matthews - "Adult Social programs are not only helping grow our sport by connecting with new players, but it has helped me connect as a provider with people I wouldn't have otherwise. Being able to see firsthand the new friendships made via social play interaction lets me know that the future of our sport is very bright with these programs leading the way."
Scott McCulloch - " Adult social leagues and Team up Events are easy to follow formats for providers and are very well received by the players…. I highly encourage all providers to incorporate some social leagues/team ups events as they are an important piece in the adult tennis pathway."
Arnie Villagomez - "It’s been amazing how the Chicago District Tennis Association has embraced and responded to the potential for growing Adult Participation through Social Leagues and Events. There has been an upward spike in energy and enthusiasm with how simple it is creating new ideas and starting new Social Leagues. They’re jumping on the Social League and Event opportunities and asking for more."
