COVID 19 Update for 2021 Tennis

Unfortunately, due to the Pandemic, many of our activities as listed below are currently on hold until further notice.  However, we are still holding our monthly mixers and we invite you to join us!  You must make a reservation in order to play.  We are playing at Costa Mesa Tennis Center once a month at 10am on Sundays.  Tennis is followed by an optional lunch at a local restaurant as permitted by the pandemic rules currently in force.

We do follow the current rules for social distancing on the courts and we have sanitizer available at all times. Tennis is a heathy outdoor sport and we hope that you will be able to join us.  Contact Terry King, Director of Tennis, to reserve your spot and get on our monthly email list.

The Balboa Tennis program is an active group of approximately 25-30 tennis players of all levels and ages.  The tennis group organizes several activities during the year:

  • Weekly free tennis at Corona del Mar High School in Newport Beach on Sunday mornings from roughly 9:00 to 11:00 am.  Usually there are 2-3 courts of players at all levels and they play year round.  This is a self-run group, just show up, introduce yourself and join in.
  • Monthly tennis mixers in the summer (usually May to October) at Newport Beach Tennis Club in Newport Beach.  These are usually mixed doubles in a round robin format.  Play usually takes place on the third Sunday of each month and we try to have 4-6 courts of different levels.  There is a charge for the courts and guests are always welcome (guests pay a small surcharge).  Tennis starts at 1:00 pm and is followed by drinks and food purchased from the Club with lots of discussion trying to solve the problems of the world!  Come and join us, but you do need to sign up ahead of time so that we can ensure there is an even amount of players for the tennis.
  • Annual trip to Port Hueneme near Ventura, CA.  This is advertised as a tennis trip because the motel has tennis courts and we do a 2-day tennis tournament, but you do not have to play tennis to join us on the trip.  Activities include the tennis tournament, cocktail parties, group dinners, and game nights at the motel.  This trip is usually in July and reservations are required for this 3-night, 4-day trip.

Look for the exact dates and locations for these activities under our Calendar and plan to join us!
