"Hi Tessa - looking for more people to hit with in the NE/SE close-in PDX area. checking to see if you are still active on this site and with the racket. Have a great 4th and let me know if you'd like to hit sometime - Agassi my favorite too!"
"Hey Kirstin... just checking if you still use this site, we never got to hit locally.... I've actually found more people to hit with through craigslist but wanted to check back. Have a happy 4th, enjoy blues fest if heading down, ttys.... Gabe"
"Hi Kirstin, how's it going?
Had just logged in to reply to someone in Vancouver, and followed up with Renae in Portland. Just wanted to check with you as well (you are the closest) incase you may free up for some tennis later in the week? I…"
"Hi Renae, just checking back - despite correspondence I still haven't hit with someone from tennisopolis yet... Wouldn't mind meeting up this week if weather gets better again and you free up (I believe you said Wed and Thurs are free?). I…"
"Hey Renae, looks like Wed and Thurs work best on the 10 day forecast (Tues is rainy)... Wed is supposed to be partly cloudy and 61, Thurs mostly cloudy and 67. (but some sun both days). Take your pick, both work for me. Hey can you email me at…"
Just wanted to check back with you, weather looks to be awesome today, 70 degrees actually! Wanted to go hit some balls, another guy had to back out b/c something with his wife came up... Let me know, I'm pretty flexible today. Not…"
Just wanted to check in with you...
It's a gorgeous day, gonna be 70 degrees - wanna go hit some balls?
Was supposed to hit with another guy later, but his wife had something come up. I see some other peeps but they are in…"
"Sounds good Kirstin, you are very close and right next to those courts. I'm flexible so just get back at me with a couple slots when you and mother nature are ready... my # again is 503-891-9175. Thx, Gabe"
Still rainy season but let me know in the coming weeks if you want to hit some tennis balls. Haven't logged into the site since early in the month but still want to meet some people that may be ready to play some tennis in April.…"
Just wanted to follow up... looks like despite some rain next few days, Tues-Fri supposed to be really nice this coming week. It's supposed to get close to 60 degrees by the later part of the week! So that's a welcome…"
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
-Looking to meet more people rated 4.5 or so (male or female) for singles close-in eastside. If people are available non-peak hours (mornings or days) even better than eves/weekends, when most courts are packed and there's a wait.
-Also wouldn't mind getting a group of 4 together for some doubles down the road, ideally close to same level, mixed doubles OK too.
-At some point (maybe while on a road trip) would love to try the grass courts out in Baker City, in eastern Oregon.
**Evenings/Weekends: Grant Park (NE 33rd) - 6 courts (upper 3 better)
**Off-Peak Times: Laurelhurst Park (SE 38th + Stark) - only 2 courts but closest to me
**Also enjoy: Mt. Tabor courts (west or east), Sellwood Park, and Washington Park (the ones near Japanese Gardens). Open to try others too.

Hey Gabe, thanks for the comment. It would be great to go and hit sometime, maybe even try a game. Laurelhurst is my preferred spot, too. I'm free today or this weekend (afternoons) so let me know if you want to play. Not too wet yet today. Otherwise, keep me in mind for future good-weather days.
ok well thats a little reassuring. I mean we could always get together once and if i totally suck and your bored and annoyed just dont call me again and thats that! lol whats your schedule look like?? I havent been having to go into work till 12 or 1 in the afternoon so if your a morning person we could do that? or if you have an indoor membership we could do that. I have tuesdays and wednesdays off.
hey! wow if you're a possible 4.0 im definately not there right now! maybe if i get serious and play a few times a week. Im worried you might be a little too advanced for me right now. Im not even sure how i would play because its been so long! i just wouldnt want you to be bored. But after i get out and hit and feel comfortable i think we could have a good time!
