Greetings Sydneysiders...
Let's all get together and be merry and have parties/bbqs/other social activities and of course TENNIS!!!!
Melbournians will have to set up their own chapter, i'm sorry but unfortunately in the 21st century teleport travel isn't available yet...
I'd like to have our first meeting sometime in January cause im sure too many people are busy with christmas/family stuff.
So c'mon OrangeOne/others...
Let's DO IT!!!!

If anyone wants to come from Country NSW/Interstate/Overseas,
that's fine but this chapter is intended PRIMARILY for Sydneysiders..

So, somebody, anybody... can we agree on a venue/meeting place?

Another bump/update..
Doesn't it drive u nuts when you remember some girl that you used to flirt with but totally screwed it up with in high school?
Well I've been going thru this ever since i found this girl on Facebook.
Tracked her down and spoke to her mother (i think) left name and phone number...
Waiting on phone call...
ARGH!!!

Rickson
12-26-2007, 01:09 PM
Hyper, let me give you some advice in all seriousness. Don't wait around for the phone call. If this girl hasn't seen you in years, she probably won't call anyway because she may not remember you. There's no need to stress over something as petty as a phone call. If she calls, then great, take it from there. If not, don't stress, it's simply not worth it.

HyperHorse
12-26-2007, 01:19 PM
Um.. thanks Rickson...
At least i got to hear something supportive from you...
Anyone going to the Medibank International?
$20 access for show courts?!?!?!? WOOHOO!!!!
I know I'll be there a few days...
Who wants to meet up?

After thinking about this, I'd bet that she would remember me...
After she broke my heart after i worked up the courage to ask her out in yr 9, she started to flirt with me again a year later or so...
Then in Yr 11 she asked if I could forgive her and if we could go out.. and i refused, out of pride...
The regrets of a wasted youth...
*sigh*

How do you know she's not married by now? So many things could have happened since then. With so much time having passed, don't you think it's time to give someone else a try? As the farmers say, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Skinny chicks couldn't have had children? Come on, dude. How long has it been exactly? The reason you don't want to get hung up on any 1 chick is because she might have hooked up with someone else, she might not feel anything for you anymore, or she has other interests (career). The more time that's passed, the less of a chance you have so keep that in mind.

We can organise a date and time for the weekend next time. Happy new year! Sorry I haven't been in touch with you since Melbourne.

HyperHorse
01-06-2008, 07:51 PM
Yes well I had a hit with daddy.dirtsurfer and hoons...
Both seperately since dirtysurfer had to do stuff in the afternoon..
Was pretty humid, then it just got hot and humid..
Was about 30degrees C and at least 90% humidity...
Drank about 2 litres of water and didn't go to the toilet until some time later...
So it was a challenging day after not playing for almost a year.
I played pretty average/rusty, thanks guys for the practise.
Hoons and i practised and also played a rather... uneventful practise set.
Now i just need to work out a plan/path to get back to my old self...

I usually go to Haberfield Tennis Centre, they have about 10 synthetic grass courts there that are in pretty good shape. Every now and then my friend and I splurge and go out to the Olympic Centre courts for a hit.
I'm glad there's some meetups being organised around these parts finally, I'll do my best to get to them as often as possible, good times ahead!

01-10-2008, 04:37 AM
Woot Sydney!!! Yeh!! I'm in the lower North Shore area and it is a real social tennis area with very very few serious players. I go to uni really really far away though so i'm only here during uni breaks. On the bright side. There is an indoor tennis centre near my uni and its a really nice place with good players and the indoor courts are sorta a novelty in the metro sydney region. It does get really cold though in rural NSW which is a pain :cry:.

HyperHorse
01-10-2008, 06:10 AM

Welcome new people!!!
So.. where does everyone play at?
Looking for some regular social tennis for some decent practise...
Maybe when we get enough numbers we can settle on a venue and have our own social tennis get together...

basiljunk
01-10-2008, 01:30 PM
I've never really strayed too far from the courts that are just over the road from my house, up here in Hornsby.
I'd be willing to travel for a decent hit, though. I'm so sick of this crappy synthetic turf/sand surface that all the courts around here have.

bertrevert
01-10-2008, 06:42 PM
Hey TPro, me lower north shore as well. Indoor tennis in the country? Wow that does sound kind of unusual, why indoors out there? (wherever there is)

Hey Basiljunk - Tood Woodbridge hates artificial grass, but it's what we all have to play on isn't it, I agree with you 100% and don't think it's actually any good for developing anyone's game but it's all we have isn't it??? Yeah Hornsby isn't a dynamo still at least its' affordable...

Tpro
01-10-2008, 06:50 PM
Yeh I thought indoor courts in the country were pointless too until winter came and frost and ice were everywhere in the morning and it gets crazily cold. Now I can see why the Americans have so many indoor courts in comparison to us.

And I agree with the synthetic grass being terrible but it really is all we have around here. I would prefer a legitimate hard court or clay court over them any day of the week being the baseliner I am. The other thing about the synthetic grass courts is that all of them seem to play at different speeds. I've played on one that was so fast it felt like grass (there are grass courts in a centre near my place but its kind of a novelty) and another that was slow and the ball bounced quite high so you really dont know what to expect until you actually start playing on it.

Artificial grass...

Doesn't take spin well
Is (usually) too fast to help people learn to construct a point
Doesn't provide good grip
Wears unevenly
Is often installed poorly / maintained poorly so it bunches or lumps or rips
Is bad if you fall on it (often burns you instead of just scraping)
Has inconsistent bounce
Is annoying due to the sand
Absorbs sound
Is inconsistent to slide on... it's solitary good point, is that if it's installed well...

it drains well after rain, and is playable sooner than 'most any other surface. I hate the stuff, and yet I too spend my life playing on it, as we all know, almost every court in greater sydney is covered in it!

HyperHorse
01-10-2008, 09:31 PM
Well... You guys haven't come across the newer brands of synthetic grass?
Evergreen is pretty good, not sure where they're using it...
But the courts@ Primrose Park in Neutral Bay are pretty good..
Fast, take to slice well, low bounce..good grip..
Courts@Moore Park look similiar too.

I'm out at Parra. The courts there used to be woeful. They've re-surfaced a few now and put in a few new lights so they aren't so bad now. There are 3 clay type courts as well which aren't too bad. Better than loam, but not as good as real clay.

The Haberfield courts are the best synthetic grass I've played on and I found the Moore park courts to be pretty good too.

Anyhow, where do you guys normally play? Are your courts free? Rock up with a couple of mates and play? Is there any social tennis age group 18-20ish who plays tennis?

04-16-2008, 07:30 PM
Do indoor courts even exist here? Certainly not anywhere near me. I don't even want to imagine how expensive they'd be, too.

We managed to get a match finished on Tuesday night, but only just. It's supposed to rain all through next week as well.

garfonkee
04-17-2008, 01:46 AM
Next week still raining? :(

I just got a new racquet, O3 tour MS, and the guy at the shop was telling me that he'd only seen about 2 indoor courts ever in sydney, and the both went bankrupt or something :/ And apparently that's because sydney is supposed to be rainless (usually)

I wonder how expensive rain covers would be.. I don't see a lot of them around.

04-17-2008, 11:38 AM
anything happening i a couple of weeks time?
I will be back in Sydney for a couple of weeks, and would love to have a hit or two.
Havent touched my racquets since Jan this year, so it'd be interesting.

I will be at mum and dad's in inner west, and still have my cars, so should be okay to travel.

Now I need to remember where my spare racquet is in Sydney?!??

I'm available most of the days in the week, and there's a free tennis court as I live in a complex.. need to book if planning to play in the afternoon though

jman: doubt you'll find much.. I was told there's one in orange, but that's 4 hours drive away..

there is one at Macquaire Uni
but good luck renting it out
its always been locked up whenever I've been there
I've heard Hewitt practices there though

only other one I know of is at Tennis World North Ryde
but I wouldn't even call that a court...terrible in one word

There are clay courts at Parramatta - Barton Park. Barton St - North East end of Parrramatta. After all the rain, they probably won't be playable for a few days, and you might want to check with the club house if they are still hiring them out and for how much. ph 02 9683 1703.

They are made of crushed tilesa dn they're not bad, but they are not as good as real european clay. They are slow and the ball sits up, but the footing and firmness is not as good as a well maintained and watered european clay court. Also the bounce is not as consistent.

Perhaps of more benefit to us, as T-W Aust's Sydney chapter is to set-up an informal T-W BUYING GROUP for us Sydneysiders.

If enough of us get together and centralise our large T-W order, hopefully it may reduce shipping charges and customs hassles...think of the group discounts...?! For collection/payment we could all get together for a hit...

Naive ? Ambitious ? Just a thought...especially when you've thought about buying just one or two items but didn't want any freight hassles...

Strungout in Rushcutters Bay have one, as I'm sure Top Serve @ Burwood do as well.
Why do you need to use one?

Update: Lost the job that i started in April 2 weeks after i started. Was told "i'm not the right person for the job". Was too depressed/angry to post about it.
Starting a IT course by correspondence, thru OTEN. Since that recruiter that got me the job in Chatswood has done nothing.

Great thanks for the info! I'm trying match two of my racquets as they have difference weight stock (TT warrior mp). Hopefully they don't charge too much for using the machine.

I think there is one other place in Sydney that has Indoor courts..somewhere out west i think
