Tennis in Lausanne

Anyone want to play tennis in Lausanne once or twice a week? I don't know my official level on that scale they use but I played loads as a teenager and am neither brilliant nor useless.

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

Hopefully there will be more people interested. Otherwise, soon (2-3 weeks) you will be able to join a club in your neck of the woods

Tennis in Lausanne

Few threads about tennis, but I am looking for either an outdoor court to play on without membership costs (flat rate per hour) in the Lausanne area, or some specific information about the LS tennis club's requirements?

It's the first place listed here : http://www.lausanne.ch/view.asp?docI...616&Language=E

We went up to find out but while me and my partner are both learning French in classes we could not work it out despite the help of the lady there. Seems you have to be a member, but we cannot decipher any more details

Thanks for any help.

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

You can speak to the club above and get different membership options e.g. passive which is much cheaper than active and then play whenever you want to with your partner. Passive means that you can use the courts whenever the club members aren't too busy with their usual program like scheduled trainings, interclubs and club chamiponships. Optionally some clubs just charge their guest per hour as well. There should also be some public tennis courts in your area.

Thanks but that's exactly what we could not find out when we tried.

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

Sorry sent a wrong link last time. Here it is again: http://www.tcstade-lausanne.ch/Club/Bulles/bulles.html This is the third place from your link and it seems like they charge for rented court per hour as well.

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

I think I'm a bit late joining this thread but is there anybody looking to play a few games of tennis in Lausanne? I haven't played for a couple of years but would love to get back into it, especially after watching the French Open and getting excited by the idea!

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

So we tried both the one up by the Olympic Stadium and the one in Vidy.

Both were a bit freestyle with their prices, both trying to charge above their advertiserd prices for non members, but played at both successfully.

Vidy is lovely, lots of courts, nice area, nice restaurant/bar and a good vibe.

Other one is nice, not so many courts, but functional, has a restaurant - more of a local place.

Just trying to perfect the art of sustaining a rally lasting more than 3 strokes and then I'd be happy to give anyone a game, but be warned, I am a low level and more into doing some sport in the outdoors than winning (or even being any good).

Don't worry. Keep on practicing these rallies until you get more and more going? Someone told me that the other day Fedex said that in order to play a competitive tennis you need to hit the ball few hundred times over the net at the same pace and without making unforced error. I guess I'm still far from perfection by the above criterion as well

Tennis in Lausanne

Hi! My name is Anatoly. I have recently arrived in Lausanne for study purposes. I would like to find a partner for playing tennis from time to time. If you are interested please don't hesitate to call me.

See Longbyt's post below! This bit belonged to the second post written by another User!

I just arrived in Lausanne (EPFL). I can play anywhere around lausanne (Vidy/UNIL/montchoisi). My level is around 3.5-4.0. Please let me know if anyone is interested or if there is any place where tennis players in lausanne can sign up and meet other players.

I can play in the weekday evenings/weekends or Monday/friday mornings.

Re: Tennis in Lausanne

Sorry mates, I think I have merged three posts (by two different Users) instead of two two posts by the same User and then two different Threads. If the second poster notices, please repost yours.

I humbly apologise to you both. As an excuse I could explain that Mr L, who came home last night after a week away, was sitting at his computer beside me telling me about what happened...

It could be interesting if anyone wants to give amateur tennis courses or learn tennis as well. They offer other sports courses too.
