"Good deal.  It's about 1:45pm. I can hit today but have to leave around 4:30 to pick up my daughter from school. I'll drop you an email with my phone if you want to get out on the courts today. Thanks, James Ruffin"

Looking for 3.5 - 4.5 players who can play during the day

Gov is shut down and I'm on furlough so I figure I might as well get out and hit. Drop me a message. I'm usually available from 11am until 3pm.See More

First USTA League Win!!

Posted on May 4, 2008 at 3:30pm 0 Comments

Me and my partner pulled out a 6-3, 7-6 win today at #2 Dubs. I'm happy. First USTA league win in my first league match. :)

hey J Ruffin!

The US Open is already here, so NOW is the time to come make your picks in the US Open Bracket Challenge sponsored by Avery Tennis.

Little known facts:
1. It's free.
2. It's fun.
3. The Grand Prize is a new Avery M3 Control racquet.
4. Do I need any more reasons?
5. It's more fun to follow the tourney when you have points at stake.
6. Bragging rights.
7. OK, I'm all out...

Come fill in your bracket, more info here.

Cool! Thanks for getting your friends over here. The people are more interesting here too - not as many adolescents! :-)

Hi J R! It's great to have you here! Hopefully Tsonga will have a killer year and get a slam!

This is our *new* generic welcome message that fortunately,is required due to the enormous growth. We're growing by 100 new members a day, and I just couldn't keep up. But that's a good thing. ;-)

Invite your friends too. We’re trying to reach 20,000 members by Wimbledon. :-)
If you need any help, let me know.

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.

Here’s a primer on how to meet other players.

The Forum is really the hub of the online community. 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,

No problem. Spread the word, so the group can continue growing. Maybe we can hit sometime in Arlington.
