We have five courts reserved. Each person gets to play 4, half-hour matches (winner moves up a court, non-winner goes down a court). The winner of the tournament gets bragging rights over all other YoPros members, and will be given the nickname "Ace." Please go to to sign up.

Who We Are:We’re a recently-launched activities group for young professionals. We charge NO membership fees and offer great discounted group rates for each activity. We participate in a wide range of activities related to sports/fitness, culture, food and drink, self-help/wellness, how to and social. We attract members who like to continually try, learn, and experience new and enjoyable activities. Our goal is to be out-and-about as much as possible, doing fun, interesting, and meaningful activities with like-minded people, taking advantage of all that Miami (and life) has to offer.
What We Offer:We strive to offer daily activities where member input and feedback will shape our offering. Our staff is aiming to be as creative as possible in designing our events for our members, and this includes events for men-only, women-only, couples-only, and some strictly social events like boat cruises or mystery trips. YoPros is also partnering with other various groups in Miami that we believe have great events, so that our members may participate in their events without having to pay additional membership to those groups. We’re always looking into new activities that Miami has to offer, as well as having events tied to upcoming festivals, shows, and parties.
A small sample of the events we are planning include:Skydiving, bellydancing, events at the Adrienne Arsht Center, capoeira lessons, cooking classes, members-only tennis tournaments, surfing classes, learning to speak Chinese, learning how to start a business, wellness courses, couples massage lessons, discussion groups, guest speakers, learning how to DJ and more.
Where:In and around greater Miami - on land, in the air, and in the water.
When:The events will be held daily, weekday nights (~7-9pm) and weekend afternoons.
Why You Should Join Us:We're going to do activities you've always wanted to do, or love doing, with like-minded young professionals.
