Playing Tennis as a Banker

Do you have time to play tennis? I've been playing my whole life and it's one of the main way I exercise, so I'm worried that I won't be able to play as an analyst/associate especially in a big city

Maybe not EVERY weekend but you’ll def have time to play a bit most Saturday mornings for example. Probably a lot harder if you want to play during the week.

Yea if you reallllly want to play and are willing to sacrifice your Fri nights, you could probably squeeze in Sat mornings as I saw most requests didn't come in until earliest 10AM (unless previously agreed upon) so yes if you want to make time, you probably can at least every other week

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I find it hard to be consistent in doing a sport after working. There's always unexpected work flow that just throw you off schedule, then I end up not going back to it for months. Tennis in NYC is also expensive, not a lot of indoor courts. The most economical option maybe hitting the golf range at Chelsea piers late at night.
