Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Time to dust off the racquets and kick-start the old tennis game again. Ankle seems healed, although my timing and movement now officially suck. :)
Update: Fractured an ankle during a soccer match, and have been suffering through months of no tennis. I had also just started to do a little part-time coaching at a local junior program, but had to stop almost as soon as I began. Just a couple more weeks now and I'll be back on the court...
Hey everyone. What a cool site! About me: I grew up in Palm Springs, CA, and just relocated back to town after about 10 years in New York City. I played very serious tennis as a junior, but played baseball in high school and college, so tennis wasn't an option. I picked up at racquet again a few years ago with some friends who had played collegiate tennis in New York, and started pounding the fuzz with them just like old times. That absolutely re-hooked me on tennis. I ended up coaching a private high school team there for 3 years, during which time we won 2 NYC Independent School City Championships! I'd love to hit with anyone looking for an evening hitting partner. Casual hits are great too!

I'll be visiting Palm Desert/Palm springs from Feb 12-19 and am bringing my racquets. I'm about a 4.5/5.0 player, but am a little rusty now, and am at about 4.0, i'd say. Anyway, if you're interested in hitting, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, thanks. I just took it with my little cannon digital.
Please tell all your tennis buddies about Tennisopolis.
I'd like to grow this site to the largest tennis site online... a boy can dream right?
AA, sorry to hear about your fracture. So, are you as good a soccer player as you are a tennis player? I hurt myself snowboarding and seriously had to think about whether snowboarding was worth it. ...still trying to decide actually. M
