I'm living in Belmont and have played a checked some places for indoor tennis practices during the winter months. Here are some of my impressions:
- Mt Auburn Athletic Club - Protected content Have 11 courts, I've played in one of the three outdoor courts they cover for winter months. Pretty decent. It stroke me as a more upscale club, not for families. Most people I saw were seniors (I went there on a Monday night, around 7PM). They rent courts, have programs for individuals and groups (it seems that group classes ruin on weekends). Membership is individual so it's not a choice for me (Wife and two kids). Great networking potential, though.
- Waltham Athletic Club - Protected content Have 7 Indoor tennis courts. They have interesting programs as the Cardio class every Wednesday ($5 for members and 15$ for non-members), stroke of the day, class based group practice and Pro on Duty. Seems to very active in tournaments. More family oriented and popular.
What about you? Have you been to other clubs? What are you doing to keep your tennis skills in shape during the cooler months?
BTW, if you want to practice and need a 3.0/3.5 partner, please drop me a line.
