Yes, absolutely. Connecting all ages of tennis players is at the core of TennisPAL. Only junior players can find other junior players on the app. We prevent adults from finding junior players. If your young athlete signs up, he will be able to use Find Pal to find players his age and coaches to connect with.

Please use the zipcode field to search for a player at a specific area. If you are searching for a player without a zipcode field it means there is no immediate user around your current location.
As a coach, can I message individuals to find new students?

No. Coaches are not allowed to solicit students by directly reaching out to individuals. Coaches can post about their services on the Moments feed and communicate with users that contact them. However, coaches cannot initiate a message to an individual user for any commercial purposes.
