Aloha Jenny ... If your nuts about tennis as I am ... You might want to come to play with some competitive players. If you have a car or bus go to Hawaii Kai and check out The Oahu Club. There is a great group of women players 4.0/4.5 players that play in the morning. Great pros .. On Tuesday and Thursday there are free clinics (if you pay the guest fee to get in) in the morning. We are all older than 27 ..we are middle aged women but very competitive. So check it out!
Call up the Oahu Club and get information ... You will have to pay a guest fee to use the facilities .. but if you go on Thursday they have a cardio tennis class included in your entry fee .. starts at 9.30 for an hour... worth it there is usually 3 pros .. go to the higher level court.. you can figure that out.... If you are paying a guest fee you can stay all day .. there are two pools and gym bring your swim suit and work out clothes .. that way you get your monies worth.
There is also yoga and aerobic classes you can do when you are there ... Also there are buses to Hawaii Kai from Waikiki... just get the informaton (oost $2 each way) but make sure you give yourself plenty of time...Some of the players are in Palm Springs this week to watch the Paribas..
Ask for me at the reception and if you want more info or want to hit I would be happy to hit with you.
The Oahu Club is on Hawaii Kai Drive in Hawaii Kai.... You will have to google for the number ...The Head Pro is Henry Sommerville and His Sister Betsy played in all the grand slams .. both are excellent pros.. if you want lessons... Also there is a young guy called Mike there ...League tennis is going on right now so weekends are packed with league play..Friday night 6.00pm is mixed doubles with pot luck (bring a dish to share) You don't need a partner to play mixed..Tues/ Wed/ Thurs cardio tennis .. Friday stroke of the day..
I think the cost to guest is $15 a day .. but call and check..If you like it on Thursday I could perhaps set up a doubles match for another time.
I might come out to Diamond Head sometime this week .. I will let you know.. I have a tennis doubles clinic on Tuesday in the morning at the Oahu Club... .I will keep you posted!
