For years I've been drinking Gatorade, then Powerade, then Propel, etc.   Not to long ago, I tried coconut water because I thought, hmm...I hate the taste of sports drinks and a red tongue!  Why not…Continue

Is tennis a dead sport?  I post in Craigslist, and several tennis sites, and so far found 1 person (year ago but no longer in contact) I used to hit with a few times.  This year, all I got were hacks…Continue

Costco has 16 cans of Penn Championship for 29.99.  Best deal so far, so split the cost with your friends...

Best deals on tennis balls?

Anyone know where to buy tennis balls cheap?   Target sells Penn @$2.19.   I've seen as low as $1.99 on occasion.   Big 5 sometimes have sales.

"I hardly think your analogy to Supermodels even remotely compares.  5.0 is not even pro level.  The issue is mainly that players are worst than they rate themselves.  I know guys saying they're 4-5, but I could beat them with a…"

"Sure, I can play anytime.  I prefer Coulon Park-much nicer atmosphere ie no car noise, shade, just feels better hitting there. "

"Well said, Dennis.  It is amazing how possibilities open up just by getting out there.  I'll hit with a 3.5 and then learn that they know a couple 4.0s, then I'll hit with them and find that they know a couple 4.5s - it all…"

Coulon Park in Renton

Looking for hitting partners before summer is over.   Prefer consistent with come pace...although  I love to use my Jack Kramer for a challenge.  Most days is good for me.   I've played at many courts, and Coulon Park is my favorite!  Right next to the beach, breeze, shade, great if you don't mind a lot of people watching.  The most comfortable (no car traffic noise) place I've ever played.  A little kept secret in Renton.  Pretty clean too.  Next to the Landing with great shops and restaurants.See More

""So according to NTRP, I would rate myself as 5.0-5.5"  Do you mean the NTRP descriptions?  Those are useless.  Everybody would be a 5.0 or 5.5 based on those paragraphs.  If I was you, I would change your rating on…"
