1. What is the California Social Tennis Network? (the Network)

The Network provides organized tennis round robin match play at various locations throughout the week, in addition to a variety of social activities each month of the year.


  2. Who founded the California Social Tennis Network?

The Network was founded by Rich Neher. Rich is the founder of the San Diego Tennis Network (1999), the first Social Tennis Network of its kind in Southern California. He resides in the San Fernando Valley of Greater Los Angeles, and works as Technical Account Manager for The Active Network.

3. Where does the Network play tennis?

Our goal is to play at different clubs at different days/nights of the week. In 2015 we are playing Friday nights 7 pm and Sunday afternoons 4 pm at Weddington Golf & Tennis on Whitsett in Studio City (San Fernando Valley), and Tuesday nights 7pm, Thursday nights 7pm, and Saturday mornings 8 am at Warner Tennis Center in Woodland Hills.



4. What level of tennis will I find at the Network?

Most of the Network members are intermediate to advanced players, and some are very advanced players. The majority of our matches are geared to intermediate and higher levels. When the courts are not too busy, we can also accommodate players who prefer singles match play. At this time we can not accommodate novices and beginners. However, programs for beginners are planned for 2015.
