Tokyo Gaijins Tennis CLUB

Tokyo Gaijins organizes casual tennis sessions for various level tennis players on weekends and some week nights at Shibaura Chuokoen, an outdoor synthetic grass court in Minato-ku area. We have sessions for two separate levels, "Upper-intermediate to advanced level" and "Beginner to lower-intermediate level". About 70% of the members are foreigners from all over the globe and about 30% are Japanese. We normally play doubles but sometimes singles too depend on the no. of players that will show up.

Come play tennis with us!
