Another sport I used to play as a child was tennis. There are tennis courts open to the public at many of the local public schools such as Franklin Middle, which has three courts, and Owings Mills High, which has four courts. In the summertime, it might be easy to find an open court, but during the school year they might be utilized by the students. Finding a tennis partner at your level and with the same schedule as you can often be difficult. Joining a local tennis meet-up group or league might be a good way to find people to play with. There are many private clubs in the area to join, but if you are looking for something more recreational and inexpensive, the Baltimore/Carroll Tennis Meetup Group might be a good option. The group facilitates recreational tennis for all ages and levels. They have meet-up activities and matches and most of the time you do not need a partner. On July 31, there is a ladies' doubles meet up at Baltimore Fitness & Tennis on Reisterstown Road and on Aug. 1, there is a men's doubles meet-up at Baltimore Fitness & Tennis. This can be a great way to stay active and meet people in the area. Visit http://www.meetup.com/The-Baltimore-Carroll-Tennis-Meetup-Group/ for more information.
