Good Times / Mediocre Tennis

Do you play tennis? I don’t. But my friend Katy does, and she’s asked me to post this call to arms (and legs too):

Members of friendly Ferndale tennis group, “Da Fennis Klub,” are more likely to wear tennis blacks than tennis whites (“when there’s peace on earth, we’ll change”), and they want to test out their serves on you. The rules: show up, be nice, and have fun.

Through the summer, the group plays 2x weekly at Detroit’s Palmer Park and Ferndale High School courts. A ladder system ensures that everyone gets points and the matches stay competitive. Now that it’s fall, the matches are petering out, but informal, pick-up games are all the rage (so is replenishing your sweat with $2 beers at the W.A.B. afterward).

To get in the game simply show up from 5-7 pm at the Ferndale High School courts. For more info, email:

CORRECTION: Sorry about not mentioning the date. Thanks Homer. Tennis ensues Sundays through October 21.

    Since you didn’t post a day which this takes place, I will assume you mean on Sundays because that’s the only day of the week that the WAB offers $2 beers. I may have to check this out, it’s been years since I’ve played tennis, and I miss it.

    Tennis courts are a staple in a lot of metro-Detroit suburbs. I cannot recall seeing very many around the city. It would be a good thing to find for next summer.
