"Tim, I live on the Westside close to the Cheviot Hills courts and I am looking for other tennis players. I play at level 3.5. I work regular business hours, so evenings or early mornings are best for me. Hope to hear from you soon."
"Hey Tracey (or anyone really), sorry for the last minute msg, but I just became free to hit tonight.
Let me know if you want to play, your time is fine. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
"I followed my email update to see if someone was crazy enough to want to play this early in the morning. Or they perhaps knew of some magical lighted courts in West LA.
I can't make it on those dates, but would be interested later as 3-3.5…"
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
This info is out of date! I got hitched & moved to NYC. Now have 0 hitting partners/friends except my wife who doesn't dig it.
I casually play for enjoyment only, but enjoy competitive spirits. I thought I would give this a shot since I've accumulated a total of 2 hitting partners in 2 years in LA. I work full-time so I can only play at night & weekends.
I used to play a lot ~ 3.5-4.0. Then I moved to LA and started my career. Now my lungs feel like they might be the size of a couple pears.
My game: serve is weak; footwork is sluggish; backhand is inconsistent; forehand is top-spinny ...
(had to keep the parrellism) ;) But seriously, I have some trouble toning down the top-spin on my forehand so I can understand if that can be annoying to some players.
The "I'm a:" section reminded me of my old days as a NCAA team manager (does not equate to skill) and as a racquet stringer. I no longer keep my machine in LA, so I can't help there. But I'd be happy to share my opinion about strings, racquets and equipment.
I AM NOT HERE TO DATE. Seems like that's a common theme here. Hitting partners & friends welcome though.
