Plan on a few hits a week from today, Desert Horizons CC, 7:30 AM. I'll call the gate to let them know of your arrival. As you pass the front, you go straight ahead a few hundred yards, parking and courts on your…"
Why not hit this coming Wednesday at 07:30 am at your place, unless you prefer Sunday at the same time ? My cell phone is 858-357-7674 if you need to reach me.
Let me know if that works for you.
"I'm an early riser, but not quite that early!! We can certainly hit in the am, but would you also be interested in hitting later in the day, say around 6 pm? Reason I ask is that our courts are completely shaded at that time. …"
"Hi Mike, we can hit sunday morning (8/21) preferably very early (I am ready for 0600 or 0700 am), or wednesday (8/17, around 06:45 -0700 am). I can drive as well to Desert Horizons cc, if you tell the guys at the gate that I am coming. Otherwise we…"
Good to hear from you. Yes, let's plan on hitting a few. I played some this morning with a buddy that lives at our CC. We're about the same level, Stu played at Stanford (many years ago), I played at…"
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Tennis was my life, at a much younger age. Grew up in Hawaii, played much of my tennis in the LA area during the summer mos., mainly at the West End Tennis Club. Played a few years at the University of California at Santa Barbara 2nd singles. Any former Gaucho's out there? Haven't hit too many tennis balls since then, and that was a loooong time ago. Just moved to Indian Wells, high hopes of getting back in shape, hitting a lot of balls.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Fed, Ana, Kirilenko

Hi Mike, we can hit sunday morning (8/21) preferably very early (I am ready for 0600 or 0700 am), or wednesday (8/17, around 06:45 -0700 am). I can drive as well to Desert Horizons cc, if you tell the guys at the gate that I am coming. Otherwise we can alternate between your courts and the public courts in the Cove in La quinta (more than decent courts as well, recently resurfaced). I think you will have a good time playing with me, even though it may (or may not !) take me a couple sessions for me to adjust to your level. I've always had a very good technique which allows me to be fairly consistent even when I haven't played for a while. I played quite a few times recently, so it should not be a problem. Let me know what works for you, and let's try to hit a few times before you go to Seattle. I live in La Quinta year round, so we can hit whenever you are in town if our schedules coincide. Thanks Mike.
