If anyone is interested in my knowledge of the tennis scene in Palms Springs area and or the Mazatlan area I can help. I have played tennis for a few years in the winter season down south and can share my knowledge. I will make this a business in the future but in the interest of networking and learning more about the amount of interest there might be I will do this for free. Of course I will offer little or no support other than advice unless there is enough interest for me to take a group of players with me and even then I don't plan to be a baby-sitter. So this is for the independent type (unless you have a fat wallet and really need the support. Your Q's and feedback are appreciated. Let me first say that the tennis scene in Palm Springs area is second to none. Amazing facilities and low prices. You have to have a car. Average cost for a month of tennis in a nice club with help from the management to find and set up games singles and doubles for you would run under a $100 per month. Hmmm did I just say under $4/day? Yes. There are clubs that if you volunteer to be a hitting partner on request that you play free. The level is often only 3.0 though. Still you get to check out many clubs that way. You need a phone of course. I guess it goes on and on. that is where this is experimental. I want to see interest level, what you need, etc etc. I will be going back this winter but I don't have a schedule yet. Let's talk.
I was interested in buying a spacious house with the idea of hosting as a guest house tennis players. I wuld have thought there would be enough from Vancouver alone but now I have my doubts. Not much interest from my first post to my home group with about 100 members. I know interest for the tournament is high but 2 weeks won't do it. Thanks for your reply Mark. I am going to Colombia (taking my racket of course) for a month or 2 but will be back fro the tournament. I met you briefly last year at Indian Wells, I was with Jamie.
