Looking to hit balls with fellow advanced beginner females. Singles or doubles. Enjoy Astoria Park. It is an easy subway ride and courts are often accessible. Open to other locations as well. Flexible availability.

I would like to play at some point this week. Do you ever play in Central Park? If not, Astoria Park sounds fine.
this week would be fine. i have not explored the situation with the central park courts. i have a hunch that they are very much in demand. maybe i will stop by today and check it out. i have lots of experience with astoria park and it is very easy to get a court, esp in the mornings. btw, effective apr 7, permits are required. do you have one?
i am an advanced beginner? and you?
I just stopped by CP this morning, and it was a madhouse. As long as Astoria Park is near a train station I'm up for it. Are you available Wednesday morning? I would consider myself an advanced beginner as well.
Yep, just got my permit lat week:)
i stopped by the central park courts to check it out. it's like every other court -- sign up and then come back at the appointed hour and play. $15 to play one hour of singles or show 2012 tennis permit.
