Tennisopolis : Tennis Social Network

OK, I got inspired by the joy of tennis abundant in these postings (and those who responded to my post looking for a hitting partner).  I lost my zest for competitive tennis long ago, but still enjoy getting out there.  I used to give free weekend lessons to friends as an excuse to get together, get outside, and get some sun (this was sometimes rare in DC).  So I'm new to this place but am thinking about offering weekly group lessons again to those interested -- totally free (no jerseys to buy, no prostelytizing, and no registration fees).  I competed as a ranked junior out of Southern Cal, played tournaments in Australia and Europe (kinda got my butt kicked on clay), regularly taught a weekend clinic in San Diego as a favor to a friend (even teaching at his high falootin' La Costa Resort clinic where they hold the Acura tourney), and coached high school tennis.  While I do not make a living as a professional tennis coach (and I have no clue who can), I do enjoy getting out there and helping people improve their game and get some exercise.  So, if you're interested in getting a group together for a clinic, let me know.  It would probably be for at most 8 intermediate and above players and would likely be on Sat morning at around 9 for an hour and a half or so.  And it would be a bonus if someone has courts at their complex which they can reserve for the group.  Just throwing that out there. Oh, and all the standard injury/sports participation waivers apply - I am a lawyer after all.

Hi Joseph,

It's great to hear that there is free tennis lessons out there. When I read your posting I couldn't believe it. I took a tennis class when I was at Broward College back in 1996. I've always loved the game of tennis and watch it a lot on TV especially all the grand slam events. I live in Sunrise near the Sawgrass Mall. I've been trying to meet and find other tennis players but no luck. I want to get back into playing the sport again because I love it an it's good exercise. Saturdays are good for me to practice. I do not have a tennis court where I live, but I can go to wherever there is one. I know there are lots of tennis courts at Broward College in Davie. Hope to hear soon from you.

Thanks, Edwin
Hi Joseph I live in the Sunrise, FL area and would like to get involved with your group and meet other like minded tennis players.
Edwin and Thomas,

We have about 5 people interested. I am going to start the group lessons soon. I just need to find courts near Ft. Lauderdale to do so. Let me know if you have any ideas.
I'm game i live close to pompano tennis center, but there are some nice free courts in the area
I am interested. I have also coached tennis.
Hey, have you gathered a group together? I am in need of classes. Thank you
Hey Joseph,

I don't have a group. Can you count me in for your group lesson? My level is between immediate to advance.

Thanks
