My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Looking for folks in a similar boat, near downtown, played before but looking to get back into it (I also played varsity in HS). Just got a new pair of rackets and am kind of getting in "tennis mode" for upcoming spring/summer after a long time off. I usually play at Laurelhurst, Tennis Ctr. (NE 12th), or Mt. Tabor - but I can go to westside too. I like the courts near Japanese Gardens but they seem to always be packed. Let me know if interested, which days/time work for you? (assuming weather is OK) Thx, Gabe
I live close in SE in the Hawthorne area. If you would like to practice or play a set or maybe sometime mixed doubles let me know. The Portland Tennis Center is a great place to play or take lessons all year round for a good price. They also have double mixers. By the way this weekend is the Nike Oregon Tennis Championship at Tualatin Hill Recreation Center. The finals are this Sunday morning. Top level college players and teaching pros enter from Canada and the northwest. You can watch for free in close in seats in a new outside tennis arena.
I am currently up in Vancouver but looking to move into the downtown area. I moved here from Ohio last fall and I have not played since the move. Do you know a good place downtown to play? If we get a nice day here this weekend would you like to get out?
