    Hi everyone!! My wife and I are moving to the area in a few week. Hopefully some people that are local and on TT can give me some info on the tennis scene.
    A bit about me: strong 4.5 player from so cal, very consistent off both sides, like to drill, play games, sets, tie breaker..anything that is going to get me better as a tennis player.
    Any info on the area not tennis related would be greatly appreciated as well....Thank you in advance.

    I'm a 4.5 in the Durham / RTP area. There is plenty of USTA league play available (Durham, Cary, and Raleigh all have leagues). Summer season (May-July) is singles and mixed doubles. Feel free to contact me with any other questions.

    Don't mean to hijack this thread, but I am looking for some people to play tennis with. I live in Durham, zip code 27705. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There's an active casual ladder mostly in Durham

    http://www.tennisladder.org/

    Mostly 3.5s and 4.0s but there are 15 or 20 4.5s. I'm always able to get a match at whatever random time during the week.

    Hey Lips, I'm in Apex as well. Hope you're enjoying the Triangle so far-- I really like it here, even with the unpleasant summer weather.

    I wouldn't be able to give you much of a match, as I'm still picking up the game and definitely sub-4.0, but if you feel like a friendly hit sometime, drop me a line: avles338@zoho.com.
