I am brand new to the site and have no idea how to work it? I wound up on your page so here it goes: wanna play tennis? You seem like you're totally a fan and that is good because I am too! But really love to play!
I live in West Knox but don't care to drive within the city to play. Fairly flexible schedule to accommodate finding a time to play.
My apartment's tennis court seems empty most of the time...there isnt a reservation process though!
btw the city of knoxville website boasts of 83 public courts ;) check the link:
(sorry, i dont know how to make the link clickable in this site)
arent any of these courts actually free for public use?
$5 adds up to quite a bit if you play regularly!
;) i personally, dont mind paying it once in a while, though
Hi Erin..i guess the climate is going to be breezy and warm for a while...perfect for tennis, i agree..though showers may play spoilsport one in a while..
i would love to play.. though you being a 'tournament goer' scares me a bit ;) ...but dint u mention there arent any public courts or suitable places in knoxville?
I grew up in Lowell, IN. A small town a little south of Gary. Went to college at IU in Bloomington. I usually play at the Tyson courts located where Cumberland turns into Kingston. They're really nice courts but they charge five bucks to play there. I realize that isn't much but it really bugs me that a public court would charge the public to play on a court built and maintained with public tax money. You know of any good places to play? I've only been in Knoxville for two months.
hi Erin...thanks for adding me.
i too love tennis...but you are almost pro!!...from what i could gather from your profile! ;)
well..though i loved tennis as a kid,(i absolutely luv steffi graf ;)) i basically got to hold a tennis racquet for the first time just two years ago!...that b'coz i used to be in Kuwait and India and barely anyone play tennis there..
i think, i play pretty ok for a beginner...are there public courts in Knoxville, where ppl would come to play...none of my friends here play tennis ;)
