"natural gut, it turns your racket into a magic wand and generates tons of forgiveness, also it create a lot of confidence you can't maintain. what is there not to like about that stuff!"

I am around. I just can't give you a definitive time as to when i am free. Possible friday during the day time or morning. Would that possibly work for you?

I wasn't able to watch the video you uploaded, but I have been watching other videos. I have heard good things about the tennis class, so I am very interested in taking it. It is only for 6 weeks, so I am hoping to at least learn some basic techniques. I am pretty adept at getting the ball over the net, but I need to work on foot work, agility,volleys, and so forth. I'd say I am a beginner and still do not know how to play the game. I will have to let you know my schedule cause I have full-time school and work. Give me a few days, and maybe we can coordinate something.

Sorry If I haven't replied back...I actually start tennis classes at a local college Monday(tomorrow), but I am always up to play on the weekends. I kinda just want to learn in a class setting at this point and practice on my own when I have the time. Do you play on the weekends?

Well, I have been to San Pablo park, which is in Berkeley. I have been hitting against the wall, and played with some people once. Nice courts. There is another one off the North Berkeley Bart station that is small but nice. As I said I am still pretty new to the sport.
