Bonus!  Looking for tennis partners. There are a number of websites and apps that have a marketplace of tennis players who are looking for a game.  Some are free and others have premium models where you pay a monthly fee.  Here are some of the options below in the market place.

Let’s Play Tennis

Let’s play tennis is a free service that require a traditional email /password mechanism to join.  Here in Miami for instance they have approximately 370 players listed in their marketplace.  Players can include a photo of themselves a brief description of what they are looking for and a self rating.

One thing to note with these sites most players over rate themselves. For example if you are a 4.0 USTA player and someone claims to be of similar level there is a good chance they are not so try to vet them out our filter your search accordingly.
