Is there an organization that helps match up people looking to play tennis locally?

Eric Detweiler

The Greater Wilmington Tennis Association offers a variety of programs that can help. The organization hosts free play for seniors 55 and up every morning during the week at Empie Park. Men go 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Women play 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday/Thursday.

There’s also a bulletin board at the park’s Althea Gibson Tennis Complex where interested players can post their contact information in search of playing partners. New players should consider one of the organization’s beginner clinics. That would be a good way to find others just starting out. A schedule of clinics and other events is available at WilmingtonTennis.com. Or you can call the Empie Park office at 910-341-4631 or email info@empiepark.com for more info.

The Wilmington Tennis Ladder is another good way to find partners locally. Ladders cover a variety of skill levels in singles and doubles. The cost is $25 for a five-month season and ensures at least two matches per month. More information is available at WilmingtonTennisLadder.com.
