Hey man,
I'm kind of available whenever. As of now, i'm just preparing for the boards (medical exam), and i'm not doing any rotations right now. I'm down for playing later this afternoon if you would like. Beautiful out right now. Let me know if you would like to play some tennis (i know u said u will be busy this week, but let me know if you do). Email me at, easier to check

There's a set of courts at 58th & Doerchester - right behind the Lab school. 5 courts, kept real nice. I usually go there because I have yet to see all 5 being used. Completely bare during the week, M-F.

Expectations? None here. Like I mentioned, I myself am basically just looking to break a sweat and have fun doing it. I never even played in high school - so you're already one up on me. I'm basically looking to work on my form more than trying to win the game. Of course - I'm a human so I'm competitive, so I'll always do my best. But, like you - I'm just getting back into the game so I'm sure it's all good!!

I can meet you up at the 53rd st. courts - I've passed them up before, so I know where they're at. This week's not looking too good for me (the only time I've got free is Friday morning/afternoon - if that works for you, cool). Next week, however, I'm pretty wide open.

Hit me back with a couple day/times that work for you, and we'll figure something out.

Have a good week, man!

Hey man,
Awesome! Someone from Hyde Park. We should definitely play at Hyde Park. I am not exactly sure what courts u were mentioning, maybe u can give me the exact location. I play on the courts on 53rd street, near Lake Shore Drive. Lets hit around some time. Dont expect too much from me tho, i'd say I'm a beginner. But I did play in highschool, which isn't saying much. Haven't played for ~ last 3-4 yrs. Picking it back up this summer.
