Hi, I am a former 5.5+ some 10+ years ago (US junior national ranking, sectionals, superchamps, and some international tournaments) and am only now starting to get back into tennis after not touching a racket for all these years mostly to help me lose weight (desperately want to lose 20lbs) and get back into shape. I am most likely a 4.5 now.
I live in Astoria and would like to hit at Astoria Park. I have a tennis permit and balls and am thinking about getting a second racket. If you'd like to hit, please message me. If I can get myself in a rhythm, I can be very consistent with all of my strokes, so I could be an ideal hitting partner.
I am not looking to play too many matches as my competitive days are behind me and I don't really have an interest in revisiting them. I am looking for 1) exercise, 2) a consistent hitter, and 3) somebody who is comfortable playing some points for fun. I can hit with pace or slow it down with light, soft rallies.
Ideally I am looking for a 4.0-5.5 player. I'll be very appreciative if you can make me run and burn some calories, which is really my only priority.
If interested, please msg me and I will send you my cell phone # and email address.

I'm happy to hit again on mornings.
Have a safe trip, bro.
I am 3.5 but pretty good at playig rallies and have been playing with some 5.0 players before. If you are interested, please let me know! I usually play at NTC in Flushing Meadow.
