Don't know if this was asked before, as I'm sorta new to the forum. In any case, how often does everyone here play tennis? If you can, mention your NTRP skill level.

I'm 4.5, and play 4-6 days a week, assuming it doesn't rain (I live in Florida) for a week.

I have no idea my level, it's not so much used in juniors around here. But I'm ranked. I try for everyday but during the winter it's expensive and hard to work around. But in the summer I play virtually everyday.

2-3 times a week, alot on the weekends. i jus started a while ago and the first day i started playing i played for 5 hours straight lol

03-27-2005, 05:43 PM

4.0 level. I play about 3 times a week. I would like to play 5-6 times a week but job/kids/wife pretty much keep that from happening.

I play 5 to 6 days a week after work, and on weekends. 4.5 all court player.

I play 4-5 times a week, plan to play everyday in the summer. I think my ranking is 4.0 - 4.5, not sure which :D

Depends on the time of year.
currently play 2 evenings a week, both days on the weekends

June, July August - Almost everyday, sometimes twice a day - can't wait for the summer!!!

With coaching, instructing & tournaments, I play 7 days a week, but that often amounts to 10 or 11 separate times a week. 5.0+ rating.

03-27-2005, 07:40 PM

03-27-2005, 08:03 PM
2 days a week . I gotta work ; during the summer 4 days a week.

03-27-2005, 10:42 PM
5-6 days a week. 3 hours a day. I'm on my high school tennis team so its pretty demanding. I'm not sure wat my ntrp ranking is but i would imagine a 4.0? 4.5? Not sure. But i play 4 singles in a tough league.

03-27-2005, 10:55 PM
3.5 at my absolute worst ever, 4.5 mostly can be 5, I play 2 on sat, 2 on monday,1 on sunday, 1 on tue, 1 on wed and a quick hit on friday

03-27-2005, 11:22 PM
Solid 4.0, i play 2-3 days week, nearly always mens/mixed doubles rubbers/sets, from 3.5-5.0+ levels. I'm probably about grade 6-8 vic pennant level.

03-28-2005, 12:24 AM
i play 6 or 7 times a week :)

I usually play at least 4-5 days a week (sometimes more, depending on what time of year).

I am also probably around the 6-8 Vic Pennant Grade, because i have beaten those, or am very competitive with those players in tournaments. However, because this is my first Vic Pennant season, I have to start in grade 15...

I'm a strong 3.5, but not quite strong enough to get bumped up to 4.0, although I've played and beaten a few 4.0's.
Most weeks I play Singles twice, Doubles twice, and attend clinics or hit with a ball machine once or twice.

03-28-2005, 01:00 PM
i play twice a week, i'm a weekend warrior :) i hope that i can play more but my job is keeping me from it :thumbsdown:.

A first time player is 1.0. A touring pro is 7.0. There is a guide on tennis.com

Your rating is out of seven. 7 being pro. To my knowledge anyway. Sry, when I first read it ^ that post wasn't there.

i play about 11.5 or 12 hours a week

03-30-2005, 04:45 PM
I think I'm 4.0; hit 3 to 4 hours a week -not playing now because I'm recovering from an injury. Can't wait to hit again!

4.0/ 2 or 3 times a week. I'm female but play doubles with 3 guys (stirred doubles?) twice a week and then maybe pick up another match, mixed doubles or singles. I save week-ends for biking; I'm a roadie. During the week I hit the gym for spinning and weight lifting. And that's besides teenagers/work/life.

04-20-2005, 01:22 PM
3-4 times a week. More or less depending on weather.

04-21-2005, 07:33 PM
