    Hey Im looking for some partners to play with around Metro Atlanta area. Been playing for 16 months now. Im a lower level 4.0 but I wanna start branching out and see who all I can play with. If anyone wants to go to like Rhodes Jordan park or Mtn. Park (When the free hours kick in lol) and do some drills or play matches that'd be awesome.

    Vid of me hitting 2 months ago:

    youve got a hitch in your backswing on the forehand side, but your strokes actually look pretty good for a 4.0 - especially playing with a wooden racquet!

    yes, looking pretty sharp with that wood stick.
    I'm in the Atl some, so shoot me an email and maybe we can meet to hit some.

    Excellent progress in a short period of time. Why the wooden raquet?

    All of my other racquets had broken strings so I had to play with that one until I got some more string. It's not my real racquet

    Thanks man! Sounds like a plan

    Have you had any tournament or league play against 4.0s? You look athletic and your strokes look good. I wouldn't think you'd be all that low on the 4.0 scale.

    I'm a 4.5-5.0 ex-college player who lives and teaches in the Atlanta area. I might be able to come up with some names of people to play with or at the very least an a few places to go to get some solid competition.
