Get Started and Be a Part of a Lifetime Sport!
Tennis is a lifetime sport that can increase physical fitness and health. What’s more, tennis is a highly-social sport. Players not only revel in the competition but also the camaraderie that comes with participation in the sport. You can play individually or as part of a team. It’s a sport that offers something for everyone, regardless of age, background or ability. And with the mild Northern California weather, every season is tennis season!
Let USTA Northern California connect you to tennis in your community through our programs listed below, our organization partners and our helpful staff.

Where to Play In Northern California

Parks and Recreation
 - For starters, have a look at your local park directory and check to see their hours of operation. Most likely, information about potential offered lessons/programs is close by. Within a matter of minutes, you could be on the court.

Clubs and Facilities - An organized tennis club (or sports facility with tennis courts) often offers well-maintain courts with varied surfaces, whether indoor or outdoor. It might be that you don’t know where your nearest tennis court or facility is in relation to you. No worries – with the input of a zip code or city and state, we can help you find one or several locations where serves and volleys are happening.

Community Tennis Associations - Growing hotbeds for organized tennis, CTAs are designed to coordinate and maintain tennis programs and services, guaranteeing that they are open and accessible to all who wish to play. If you’re having a hard time finding people to either team with in doubles or play against, CTA involvement could be of tremendous benefit.
