The South Bay Tennis Network is a local resource that will help you get started. Operated by Dave Mahoney, the South Bay Tennis Network is an all-in-one service offering group and private individual lessons, camps, tournaments and teams for kids, teens and adults.
Lessons for adults range from beginner to advanced, and are split into group, semi-private and private settings. There are three levels of classes for children (ages 3-5, 5-10, and 10-17), and each is tailored to different skill levels. If you’re a more advanced player, the South Bay Tennis Network offers private or small-group settings where tournament-level players can work on more refined areas of their games.
“Dave Mahoney is a great tennis coach,” said one review on Yelp. “He is personable, a great player and very caring. I would recommend him for your kids as well as for adult players.”
If you’re looking for some training, doubles partners, or just others of your same skill level, the South Bay Tennis Network can also help you get connected. They organize the Beach Cities Tennis Ladder, where players of all skills levels can play and compete with others of similar ability. If you’re just looking to get out and play, it can be a great opportunity to develop your game a bit and even meet some new people while you’re at it. You can schedule your matches and locations, record your scores, and track your own ranking.
Junior tennis teams are formed for league play around the South Bay, with matches starting in April.
Dave Mahoney has won the Manhattan Open twice and was once ranked in the top 20 in Southern California as well as No. 30 in the United States Men’s 30s division.
