Hey Richard,
The way you described yourself (strong forward, decent backhand and serve, etc) sounds like a reasonably accurate scouting report for me. Anderson is also the only court I've played on since moving to the area a few months ago. So I'd be open to playing sometime soon. If you're up for it, send me an email:

Hi Rich,

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - I'm out-of-town right now. I didn't realize we'd be coordinating to play so soon. I will actually be unavailable until the week after July 4th because of work and traveling. Maybe we can touch base then to find a time to play some tennis?

Hi Rich,

I'm really not sure what level I am, but going off of descriptions for playing levels, I would guess that I'm about 3.0. My serve can definitely use some work, though. Let me know if you'd like to play (singles or doubles) or practice sometime. I am free most weeknights and weekends. Take care!

I would be willing to play doubles. Let me know some times when you are available, pretty much any time on the court would be good for me, singles, doubles or parctice.

I;ve been trying to find a hitting partner in Cary/ Chapel Hill too. Would you be interested in playing doubles? I will try to find a few more who live/work in our area.

Hi RS! It's great to have you here! (tip: use the "comment back" link and it will post your comment on their page and they will be notified. hope this helps.)

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 we just couldn't keep up. But that's a good thing. ;-)

Invite your friends too. :-)
If you need any help, let me know.

You just joined a super fun and infectious "community-based" tennis social network which connects tennis players, fans, coaches, and you.

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,

Wilson Park in Carrboro is lighted, why don't we touch base when you get back as plans can change? This link is the map ... if it expires here is the longer link:,wilson+park&near=Carrboro,+N+Carolina&fb=1&cid=14138768968834885215&li=lmd&z=15&t=m

Have a good trip.

Hi Rich!

Sounds great. I'll be out of town for two weeks starting tomorrow, but can we make a tentative plan to play the week of june 16th?

Weekday evenings (except tuesday) are preferable for me, so we could play before the sun goes down at Henry Anderson Park (off of 54 W) or find a place with lights. What do you think?
