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
"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…"
"Nice, I'd like to check out the courts there too. Today and tomorrow I already plan to play at liberty, and im in the works on trying to set up something with another tennisopolis member for friday. If something falls through, I'll let you…"

"Nothing wrong with going to a real tennis club and getting pick up games. Or just hanging out where tennis is happening and finding pickup games on the fly. I have gotten to hit with lots of former challenger pros and ex college players doing…"

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…"
