    I'll be at the Flamingo next week, and would like to practice a little tennis while I'm there. Does anybody know if Bally's tennis courts are only for people staying there?

    I’m not sure about courts, but once upon a time over 30 years ago a friend of mine and I played tennis at the Frontier courts in about 108 degree weather and I remember the worst thing was that the court was so hot that we had to quit because our feet got too hot to play.

    $20/hr for hotel guest and $25/hr non hotel guests isn't that bad. Just recently practiced tennis here in SoCal in 102 degree weather so I should be somewhat ready for 108 degree in Vegas lol might have to consider playing for an hr when I go. Tennis is my new favorite exercise.

    I have been playing tennis since I was 18 almost 50 years it’s a great sport. Do you play any USTA team tennis?

    Sadly I am just a enthusiast. I tried out for my High School Tennis Team but that is about it (played other sports). Nothing fancy like USTA (In layman's terms I am a scrub lol) but have family members who did dabble for a little bit for their background playing since their youth. Love the sport and love it more for being a great way to exercise agility and stamina. It is also a good social distancing sport.

    If you enjoy playing find USTA facilities in your area. There are a lot of public ones, where you can get into leagues against players who play at your level and you will enjoy it.

    Thank you. I just checked out their website and found new locations to play. I will definitely look into it in the future. For now I am just doing some sibling rivalries and friendly matches with friends at my local park but found some new courts thanks to the USTA site.
