I live on the East side of Athens and can play most any day before 3. I haven't hit much in the past year but will regain my timing and strokes quickly with a few regular hitting sessions. I am not opposed to group gatherings... I JUST WANT TO PLAY !

Wanted to run a thought by you as I too am on a crusade to improve. Its taken me quite a while to find "ringer" with a solid game I respect, and like I told you, "someone I'd enjoy making a run with." What I would propose is hitting together once a week or so, and mixing in a high level doubles match here and there. The spring season in mens ATLA starts in march. There are 7 regular season matches played on Saturday mornings at 9am. My team has a netcord website you can go on and check any weeks you are not available. So you could just play a couple matches, or all 7 if you wanted to. At my teams A7 level at lines 1 and 2 mainly, its all very competative 4.5ish guys and a lot of fun. Last, my team is a select team only and in the championship hunt every season, and with a big spark like you, I could all but guarantee a silver plate for each of us.
Are you game?
Would you be interested in getting together this Saturday at 2pm for some competative doubles practice.
Thats cool. I will get with you later in the week.
We hit a lot when I first moved to Athens at High Ridge 16 years ago. I have a weird schedule but would like to hit. Still playing guitar?
I am also looking for a regular hitting partner just for the love of the game. I have played tournament tennis as well as ALTA since I was 12 (27 now) and have been out of the game for the past year and am looking to get back into the swing of things. With a few hitting sessions I'm sure that I will be at least a 4.0 level player if you give me the chance. I am one of the owners of the two Menchie's frozen yogurt shops in Athens which takes up a lot of my time, but I am available all weekend or early mornings. I also live on the Eastside, so I think this might be a good fit. Let me know if you are interested.
Do you have a preferred location?
