Casual to start and nothing too competitive until I get my edge back. Must have free time for decent weather and be able to pick me up in the local Studio City area to scout courts to play. Will provide balls and refreshments.See More
50 plus here. Last week I played for the first time in way too many years. At first I felt just a bit winded but then rejuvenated.

"Hey Hank...I would like to play if you're interested. What level player are you?...I'm a 3.75 player. I prefer to play at Balboa Tennis Complex during evening hours when it's cooler. Anytime after 5:00 is good for me…"

Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I'm a 50 something looking for weekly workouts. Just rallies and nothing too competitive until I have enough playing time to get my edge back. I prefer a local partner and courts nearby in the Studio City area. Also into sports video games. Looking for a man child buddy. Someone worldly, not just a jock.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
80s stars like Ivan Lendl, Aaron Krickstein and Miroslav Mecir.
