Welcome to Tennisopolis! I created this tennis community so that people could meet to talk about the pros or create a local group to find hitting partners. We launched just two weeks ago. So I guess that makes you a charter member. :-)
Look through the Groups to see if there is already a group forming in your area. If there's not, don't hesitate to start your own. I know there's a lot of NC people in here.
There's a lot of fun to be had on Tennisopolis. A good place to start is by customizing your page and adding a picture.
