Sharon B, I noticed you are 3.5, which is where I was playing at last year in a Walnut Creek league. I also live in Danville and would like to hit sometime, when the weather gets nice again! Either on a sunny weekend or when DST starts again in mid-March. Let me know? Thanks, Jeff
clinics are more about stroke improvement. when i coached the usta 3.5 ladies, i covered doubles strategy, and about smart play, 1st serves, cross court returns, lobs, volleys, and taking control of the net. its about shot intention and knowing what to anticipate. you can be a 3.0 but if you know how you play smart, you can play at a higher level.
hi sharon. im sorry to hear youve been sidelined. at my monday night workshops at osage i always encouraged my students to stretch before warmups. get well soon. we all would enjoy having you. hey ive been looking to coach a usta team or privately. if you or anyone is interested, let me know. we can work something out.
Hi Sharon, just so you know our Thursday eve drop-in has moved to Dougherty High School. We will soon be adding a second drop-in on the weekend at Central Park. Anyways, I know you belong to many tennis leagues but I'd like to practice with you when you have the time. Aloha.
