Sip ‘N Serve

One of our most popular ongoing adult programs, Sip ‘N Serve, combines energetic on-court activities followed by a fun, social gathering. Think of it as a grown-up play day – live ball hitting and challenging drills followed by a relaxed postgame at a nearby restaurant or tavern. Sip ‘N Serve is more than serves and volleys – it’s a great way to find a new hitting partner and build your social circle on and off the court.


More events coming soon

Sip ‘N Serves have been hosted in West Los Angeles, San Diego, Encinitas, Long Beach, Burbank, and other areas of the Section. If you would like USTA SoCal to host a Sip ‘N Serve in your area, please contact
