Neighborhood or other helpful location info:
Will play from Ellenton to Sarasota & I am available all day most Sat, Sun, or Mondays, & Tues or Wed mornings close to north Bradenton
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I started playing at 28, and climbed the ladder to about 5, maybe more, but illnesses (no injuries), have got me out of shape to probably 4?. I believe I'm now good to go, at 52 - and I'd like to play at least twice a week in order to get back to where tennis is "fun" again - The ball's in your court!
***UPDATE 5/10/18*** I have recently relocated to Bradenton, & I want to play twice a week & practice my serve once a week to fully regain Match Shape condition from a long 6yr meniscus injury & I'm looking for some PLAYERS... A 3-3.5 player who wants to play twice a week & move up - we could move up the ladder together & I could help you with technique. I am turning 60 now - but NOT over the hill...
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Sampras, Federer, and all one-handers (which I always thought would win the battle of styles over time) who are tough mentally, and Roger has finally proven that he can dig deep when pressured, but he still has to beat the incredible two-hander Nadal in Grand Slam Final total wins (preferably other than just Wimbledon), to unquestionably be the greatest.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Not bad, If tennis is on TV - I am watching
On the court, I am a:
rightie, doubles partner, singles player, all courter
My favorite local courts:
I'm from Sarasota, and I've played most clay courts there. In Clwt/Largo though, I've mainly played Coachman and Highland, which have good lights, and schools and complexes, but I would like to get back once in a while on the clay at Mcmullen!
