    I was reading the new Tennis Magazine article about "real tennis" or modern "court tennis" as opposed to lawn tennis at the newsshop today. This is the one where the balls bounce off the walls and ceiling. They still play with wood racquets but they look like nothing you've ever seen! I havent been so excited by anything in tennis in years. Apparently there are only ten places to play in the US.

    the racquets had this same shape but looked to be modern and had modern pj's!!!!!!

    My reactions to the article caused people to leave the store. The store owner didn't seem to thrilled by my enjoyment of the article either. But Plasma could care less...one day I will be the world's greatest court Tennis player, if not then I'd at least like to try it out once!

    As far as I understand the serve needs to hit the ceiling and there is a certain shot which needs to go as close as possible to the back wall...
    step one is to get a rulebook and racquet...could someone pls post pics of the racquets in the article????

    I think you're a bit loony. Given your "reaction" to this information and your creative thread titles.....but oh well.

    I thought I'd help you out.....
