2.5-3 player looking for hitting partners and playing some sets

Hey all,I just reviewed the rating criteria, and it looks like I'm a 2.5-3, but haven't played in a long time and never regularly.  Trying now to integrate tennis into my fitness routine and build up my skills.  I live in Lake Merritt so Oakland is easiest but I can travel and am free some weekday evenings/weekends. Looking for folks that enjoy hitting around and then playing some sets.   Cheers,JonSee More

Hi! Welcome to the "community-based" tennis social network which connects tennis players, fans, coaches, and you. We created this place in December and it has been a wild ride ever since - we've gone viral and now we're "almost famous".

What can you do here?
At Tennisopolis, you can:
- meet other players. Here's a primer on how to find partners.
- join a Group. Members have started over 230 Local Groups (and other types of Groups too.) Search for one in your area, or start your own.
- follow the pros. There are over 1000 blog posts on Tennisopolis. Have a good read, or write your own.
- improve your game. Get tips in the Forum and check out video lessons.
- post your own Videos or embed your favorites from youtube.
- add your own Photos.
- and just hang out and connect with great people.

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.

Thanks to everyone inviting their friends, we now have over 15,000 members and we're growing by 90 new members a day. Invite yours too!

If you need any help, let me know.

Hi Jon,
I would be interested in playing. I just moved to Emeryville from South Bay so I am looking to pick up tennis again. I can drive to Oakland during the weekends.

Let me know,
Rajiv.
