Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I used to play almost everyday back in high school and then some in college, but I blew my knee out. After years of not playing, I decided to give it a try again.
I'm a photographer, an ex-bond trader, former newspaper publisher and editor, and now an HR manager, so I am used to juggling a lot of different things. Now I'm trying to juggle tennis balls- not very successfully.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
All time faves- Arthur Ashe - he was grace on and off the court; and John McEnroe - he's Mac!
Current fave - Federer - he's one cool cookie, his game is practically perfect.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):

My favorite local courts:
There are a couple of courts over at Glen Alla Park that I like. They're kind of off the beaten path.
I'm kind of a beginner myself. I mean, I can play OK, but I've got a lot to learn, although I've got a pretty mean forehand. Lots of enthusiasm, love to play, so if you're just looking for a play/volley partner, I'm definitely the dude. Like I said, nice and enthusiastic. I'm in Santa Monica, and usually play over at Penmar in your 'hood. I work til 6, can play some days after work and weekends. If you have patience, we can play and hopefully I can improve my serve. I'm just looking to have some fun and exercise and hit back and all that.
Hi Iford! It's great to have you here! I used to live in Venice - I miss it so much. I lived on Venice Blvd across from the fire station. Loved it.
