The Advanced Forehand: Is your forehand more of a "driver" or more of a "hook" shot?

Tennis during the day?

Hi there,

I am visiting the Toronto area and have free time almost everyday during the days. Evenings and weekends are also possible. I am around a 4.5 maybe it will go up after a week of practice. If you are interested please send your contact info. I am near Markham but I can travel around the city if its not too far.

Look forward to playing!

Tennis designs for tee shirts, wall placards, wallpaper/screensaver on cellphones

Hi Tennis community,

I've been playing  and involved with tennis for over 3 decades. I create designs for tee shirts, wall placards or wallpapers for your cellphones. Some are tennis related, some are on contemporary topics, clever sayings, funny, racy and even religious. I am prompt, reliable and reasonably priced. If you're interested contact me on here and we can discuss your needs (I do not do custom designs though). Here's a sample.

3.0 player looking for partner in Albany area

42 year old male self rated 3.0 just finished my first mens league.  Looking to improve to 3.5, so would love to find someone nearby to play on a consistent basis.  I work from home most days, so can usually be flexible on meeting times.  Prefer late mornings or afternoons, just not too late in the day.
