I'd really like to get out and beat your ass. I know you are a lot better than I am skill wise but my ability to read you and play to your weaknesses will make me a winner for sure. You really need to get out and play more. And post a picture.
Hi Walter, lets play. I'm older than you but in good shape, so maybe drills might be the best option. Im' 4.0 too. do you play 11/7? you count the points as in a T. break. One of the players serve only until he wins 11 points or the one who receive reach his own 7 winning points ( that put pressure on the server), then is the turn of the other player to serve. Is a great drill because is not about winning but about improving your performance. Isn't easy to win as a server so there is the big challenge. So, lets keep in contact and wait for a good weather. I usually play in Greenlake. Take care.
Hi Walter! It's great to have you here!
I see you already joined a Seattle Group – fantastic. Invite your buddies.
