Lagomar tennis courts across from Hells Point

I live up the street, was a 4.0 player back in the 90s, have lost some of that game over the aging years but still have some of my old game, would like to find anyone interested in early evening during workweek or early morning play at courts on weekends.Singles, doubles or mixed doubles, I do not care, would like to have some regular play, maybe once or twice a week. But I am flexible. Someone close by this neighborhood would be best since I could walk or ride my bicycle to these…See More

Hi Rich:  We sound VERY similar.  I hit with another guy several days ago....not much feel but think it would come back somewhat.  Have not played for 10 years, so now sore and the knees where not real cooperative.  Backhand was always stronger than my forehand, and think that will still be the case.  Would be fun to hit.  I live near Town Center and am retired, available during the days weekdays and weekends, with planning.  Be happy to come out your way.  My private email is reret2011@gmail.com and better to contact me that way.

 

Steve
