Hi Andy. I know Chis Smith too. I teach full time in the warmer weather. The weather this winter has not been good for outdoor tennis, at least for lessons. I still will play when it's in the 30's. 40's seems warm now. great to hear about your kids. I'm a lefty too and also use a lot of spin on all my shots.
I have not taught in California yet. I plan on teaching some this year after the rain. I coached for Holy Names High School last year and taught back east. Lets hit some if you are nearby. I am in Oakland where are you?
Hi Andy, Glad to have you here and you play tennis too, great. I teach about 3 times a week during the winter months and as much as 5 days a week during the summer when school is out and the good weather is more consistent. Where do you hail from and how long have you been playing?
Hey Andy - Flagstaff climate is much like Minneapolis and Chicago, except it warms up more during the day during the winter ... if we get two feet of snow on a weekend, it might be all melted within the week. but last Dec. we have 18 degrees below zero and four feet of snow ... that took a month to melt ! I play tennis outdoors as much as I can, here, Sedona and Phoenix ~
