Brand new to Berkeley, don't know a soul. Have been learning/practicing tennis all summer, and I don't want to allow my skills (such as they are) to atrophy.
I can hit from the baseline, volley, and serve alright, but I'm not very consistent yet. I've got quick hands and feet but I'm pretty new at this so sometimes things go wonky.
If anyone's a newbie, or willing to put up with one, I have lots of free time in the early morning, the afternoon, and on weekends.
If it helps, I'm a young, smart, and blonde, and if you're patient with my shitty playing, I'll be your friend forever.

I'm available Thursdays after 6.30pm - hope that isn't to late for you. Also on Saturdays before 1pm.
Any court works for me. Let me know if it's convenient for you
Thursday at 630 works. How do you feel about the rose garden courts?
Hi there! Have you continued playing? My tennis buddy (met on Tennispolis) left and I am desperate... I am a good 3.0 or 3.5 I'd say, can struggle with service but have a couple good hits. Very competitive :) I love to play three sets. I live close to the Hopkins Street courts in Berkeley. Maybe we can play some time soon? Let me know. Ciao,
Willing to check out how we could hit together. I'm also female & love to volley.
Not really into playing a game (my serve is weak) but I can hit & have stamina.
Live in Oakland, free mornings, also after 3PM weekdays. Email is best:
