Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I'm new to San Diego from Chicago and am excited at the prospects of getting to play more often in a city with more amenable weather! I am close to the Morley Field courts, but also don't know of many other local courts to North and South Park. I'll go to any courts where I can ride my bike.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Venus Williams, Steffi Graf... I dream of hitting as hard and as precisely as either of them.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
I am both a singles and doubles player at 3.5. Appreciate playing with different partners. I also play with a mixed doubles group, and we are always in needs of players. I live in the Park Ridge area, with memberships at Tam in Niles and River Trails in Arlington Heights. If interested in playing at a mutually convenient time and court, please let me know. My mobile is 312-968-9199 or leave a comment on my page (Mike Maggio).
Hey, Kelly. Happy 4th. I do remember you (I'm not THAT old), and I would like to hit with you sometime, but only if you ran the marathon in under 5 hours ;-). I've actually just started playing again with another guy during the weekdays. Maybe we can all get together. He's a really nice guy and about the same level. He is looking to play a lot, and he is pretty much in the same situation as me (home with kids), so you guys might want to meet as I'm sure he is open to meeting other tennis players.
My only issue is that my daughter is home with me this summer, so I can only play at courts that have an adjoining park. We've played at Jeff Park and a park in the near north suburbs. I don't know much about Humboldt Park. Is there a playground? Also, do you have a car? I remember you always rode your bike to the courts.
Let me know when you want to play and if you want me to try to get another player involved to meet up.
