Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Hello everyone. I just moved to the San Diego area over the last couple of weeks and am looking to get some tennis under my belt while I'm in the area. I just finished my BA in mathematics with a minor in computer science and have been pretty busy lately trying to find a decent job. In the meantime I'll be at your door delivering pizzas for Pizza Hut while I continue on looking for something somewhat more promising than "pizza pizza".

Anyway, when I'm not bringing fresh delicious pizza to your door step, I'd like to get back into tennis. I've played competitively my whole life since I was 8 years old. I've taught tennis a few times as part time gigs during the summer or during college to make a few bucks on the side. During the summer of 2002 I taught for Yarmouth Recreation and just this last spring 2007 I was an instructor at Gardiner's Resort in Carmel Valley, CA.

I haven't been formally ranked by a certified professional but from the experience I have and the knowledge I have of the game, I'm most likely a 4.5 player. If you want to hit, please give me a call. Very friendly, personable, patient guy that loves the game and is willing to give lessons upon request.

That's pretty much it from me for now. If you've actually gotten this far in my little blog here, thank you for your attention and give me a call if you want a somewhat competitive match or are interested in picking up a few pointers from a guy that has a thing or two to say about the game. References available upon request.

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon! "PIZZA PIZZA!"

If you know anyone in the area that is in need of a racket stringer, I do that as well so please let me know.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Everyone that has made it to the pro circuit. Respect!
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Pretty damn good., NTRP 4.5
On the court, I am a:
poacher, doubles partner, singles player, serve-n-volleyer, acer, one-hander, top-spinner, lobber, gracious winner, gracious loser
Relationship status:
Single, It's Complicated, Who Wants To Know?

Hi Derek! It's great to have you here!
We already have a few SD area Groups, join in one or all of those and introduce yourself in there to meet people in your area.
Invite your friends.
If you need any help, let me know.

You just joined a super fun and infectious "community-based" tennis social network which connects tennis players, fans, coaches, and you.

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.

If you are looking to meet people for tennis matches, Look through the Groups or create a Group of your own and invite your tennis contacts. It's a good place to keep in touch with everyone in your circle.

The Forum is really the hub of the online community. It’s is a fantastic place to get tips for your game, chat about the latest gear, and especially, talk about the pros.

Other places to explore: post youtube videos, add your own photos, write your own blog.

…and just hang out and meet great people.

Welcome aboard,

Like Us!
