Sure you could sit home all day watching matches on your direct tv but why not get out and play in one of the greatest tennis cities in the world? LA has a wide assortment of public course and we’ve put together a short list of our favorites for you:
Encino Park: One of the best free parks in the city, Encino Park has a full assortment of tennis courts for you to use at no charge. The part of town is fine during the day but let someone know if you’re playing at night.
Lakeview Terrace Recreation Center: These indoor courts are often full but if you don’t mind a wait they’re a great place to practice. They’re free, too, so why not enjoy some indoor tennis after work?
Ritchie Valens Park: Named for one of Hollywood’s greats, Ritchie Valens park has everything you need including backboards for solo practice. Some courts may be reserved for match or lesson play though so call ahead to see what’s available when you want to head over for a match.
