I am not sure about any tennis clubs in the metro area but almost at every single metro Detroit high school there are tennis courts that you can play on for free.

Default Try GPF or the DAC

I think the one in Grosse Pointe Farms is called the Eastside Tennis club or something like that. But if it's networking you want, try to join the DAC (Detroit Athletic Club) downtown near Comerica Park and Ford Field, most of the shooters I know belong there.

Grosse Ile has a very nice tennis club. However for large scale networking nothing beats the DAC.

Nice, looks awfully expensive, are we talking 150 a month here, or are we talking 2000 a month. I mean i am willing to spend some money, but at the same time I am also only 28, so 2000 a month would be out of question.

What part of Detroit will you be moving to? This may affect your plans to network through tennis.

Well, my office will be downtown, so I was planning on living somewhere probably along the river for the first year, since it is close, and allow me time to get a better feel for the metro area. Obviously, downtown probably does have much in tennis clubs, but I would be willing to commute anywhere in order to play. Playing tennis has done many things for me professionally, so I would like to continue that while in Detroit.

I'm in the same category as arrogant, though I dislike tennis and mainly go in for weightlifting. I'm used to the big gyms like Lifetime Fitness and Urban Active Fitness. I'd like something close to downtown though. That Detroit Athletic Club seems pretty screwy with its sponsorship letter and 6 people to endorse you. The people of our generation prefer to pay cash for service, rather than kissing the Ford family's butt for 20 years to join a gym.

Its pretty normal to require sponsors and letters of recommendation at a private club.
