I'm looking for someone to hit with and improve my game. I'm currently taking weekly lessons so the more tennis the better. If your interested let me know.

I'll put this out there, too... seeing how tricky it is to find a court and coordinate times, hitting a ball against a wall is starting to look better and better. :) You get first call on which one, but there's a handball wall near me, on Macon between Marcy and Tompkins. About three blocks from the Nostrand A/C.

Still looking, but Brooklyn College might be our best option WITHOUT having to spring for a permit. Appears a permit is required at Fort Greene Park.

I'll do some research and get back to you about free/cheap courts. Next weekend would be good.

Hey! I have only hit a ball against a wall and chased it around. Not a proper game, except maybe when I was 11 -- and that was a LONG time ago. :) My weekends are pretty free so I'm open as far as courts in Brooklyn are concerned. Just let me know if you want to deal with an absolute beginner. I'm a pretty quick study, though.

Hi Althea,
I may be too much of a novice for you. Absolute beginner. I live in Bed-Stuy and I'm open to being made to look incompetent. I have a $15 racket and some cheap balls, but I'm willing!

Hi! Welcome to the "community-based" tennis social network which connects tennis players, fans, coaches, and you.

What can you do here?
At Tennisopolis, you can:
- meet other players. Here's a primer on how to find partners.
- join a Group. Members have started over 190 Local Groups (and other types of Groups too.) Search for one in your area, or start your own.
- follow the pros. There are over 500 blog posts on Tennisopolis. Have a good read, or write your own.
- improve your game. Get tips in the Forum and check out video lessons.
- post your own Videos or embed your favorites from youtube.
- add your own Photos.
- and just hang out and connect with great people.

To get started, please upload a photo or avatar for yourself (if you haven’t already.) Whether it's of you, your dog, or your racquet it doesn't matter, but it helps people remember you. You can also personalize Your Page with pictures, links, RSS feeds, colors and more here.

Thanks to everyone inviting their friends, we now have over 10,000 members and we're growing by 100 new members a day. Invite yours too!

If you need any help, let me know.
