Do you have any friends who know how to play? Because the easiest way to learn is practice. You’re going to need a racket, balls and access to a court (obviously.) My best friend took a course at her college – you could do the same at a community college or center – and lessons with her boyfriend (who has played tennis since he was in high school.) She thought she would struggle at the beginning, but having those one-on-one sessions with someone who both knew how to play and enjoyed it, really improved her ability in a short amount of time.

Learn by doing. If you want to play tennis, go play :)

Join a tennis club or find lessons at the community college or local Park and Recreation department.

There are lots of places, through city parks, adult ed programs, colleges, etc. that offer affordable lessons. Even tennis clubs and centers allow non-members to take lessons. In addition to USTA league tennis, most cities have recreation leagues through the parks departments. You may want to start out playing doubles, either with a friend as a partner, or with someone you meet in a class.

You know this sounds odd. I practiced against the garage door. My friend and I would go on weekend and play. It helped me with my swing.

honestly tennis is all about practice and doing so atleast twice a week or more. Get a tennis instructor and have them help you develop your swing and especially your serve. And if you wanna be good, you must be serious. It took me 3 years of high skool to get good. But then again all i did was mess around at practice and try to hit cars for the first 3 years.
