Who keeps their racquets next their desk, while at work (besides me)?

Granted, I work out of my house, but I like to keep them by my desk.
Otherwise, I'd have to walk into another room when I get the sudden urge to spin one in my hand or feel the strings...

I walk around the house swinging it around. When I finally become conscious of this, I put it away in shame of my own behaviour.

When I'm leaving work to play, my rackets are in the office.

At home I always have a racket handy. Home protection.

I'm guilty of the same. Except for the shame part. Character flaw, I guess.

Now who keeps their racket AND stringmeter handy?? C'mon, I'm not the only one.

Yup, I always have some around my desk (waiting for their turn in the line-up or something).

I admit to frequent racquet fondling (as my wife refers to it) whenever watching matches on TV...just gotta have my racquet in hand to truly enjoy the match. :)

You should only be ashamed if there is also a hole in your pocket.

LOL me too! I keep my 9 pack racquet bag next to my bed. My ski boots are there too.

My wife has long ago given up complaining, she doesn't even see em any more....or the guitars under the bed.;)

As I write this, I have four of my nSix-One 95s next to me in my office, as well as a T10 Gen2, 2 Classic 6.1s, 3 new M-Fil 200s, and 2 new Diablo XPs in my office shelf unit...

Cool. I have two racquets in my cube with me here at work. Lessons after work today. Brought them in since it's too hot out there in the car for my babies...

I have my entire ski quiver and my tennis racquets in my home office.

Working from home has its advantages

Love your sig dude. Anyways yeah everytime I get my racquets restrung I always have them lying around my desk. They distract me a lot when I'm trying to do homework. Anyone ever watch pros on youtube while having a racquet near. After the vids I usually just start swinging the racquet around.

I feel alot better now that I know I am not the only one, my gurl always tells me put my raquet away, but I always have one of them out to mess with.
