Would you mind sharing where are you moved from? There are some great places around many listed above, if you are into bicycling San Antonio has the best bicycle trails all over the city and they are working to connect them all. look up San Antonio trails and you should be able to find them. You probably have a trail head near you.

I cannot answer for the tennis but there are groups on FB.
The trails also have walkers and runners along with cyclists.

Depends on what type of people you want to meet. The Pearl, The Rim, and the Riverwalk are all general areas that have fun places to be. Lots of bars and restaurants.

I recently lateraled (3rd hear) into a biglaw firm from a clerkship just before the start of the fiscal year (Oct. 1). I’ve been out on a few matters and have worked on some clients, but this will be the second month in a row I’ve billed under 150 hours/month. I’ve been told by partners and associates to enjoy the lull but I can’t help but feel like I’m not being productive. I also feel like if I ask the partner or seniors for more work again it will genuinely annoy them. What should I do?
