    USTARules. I can connect you with several 4.5 players around. We can always use another 4.5 USTA player. We finished 2nd in the 4.5 devision. Strong 8.5 combo around as well. Also, several that play in the NTRP tournaments here once per month.

    Asheville here....3.0 pushing 3.5. Started playing in May of this year and I've been loving it. Played my first tourney a couple weeks ago, and just joined a 3.0 singles team and won my first league match last night. Looking forward to the upcoming 6.5 combo league as well.

    I live in Cary. Played high school, recreationally in college, and a couple times a year since then (31 yo now). I've just started hitting more often recently and the tennis bug has bitten me again. I'm hoping I'm a 4.0 now, but that might be optimistic.

    I hope to move (retire) to Western North Carolina next year. We're going next week to look at the areas of Blowing Rock/Boone, Lake Lure/Black Mountain, and Brevard. I told my wife that I don't care AT ALL where we live, as long as there's good tennis within a half-hour drive. Obviously, we're checking out tennis facilities in each town we go to.

    Brevard Racquet Club has impressive facilities. I played there not long ago and they had just done a multi-million dollar renovation, overhauling most everything. I played at a club in Blowing Rock/Boone called Yonhalossee, the courts were really nice. They had an indoor pool and indoor courts too, but I didn't get to see either

    Thanks for the info re: Brevard. I saw it in 2005, and I'll check it out again.
    I've not been to Yonahlossee, but it's on my to-do list.

    I'm in Downeast, played a great deal of 4.0 tournaments this summer. I'll play any level though, we're fairly low on players compared to other places in NC.

    Snow Hill (i think?) always has really good 4.0/4.5 players. my understanding is that there are competing high schools there but after they graduate, they put together some mean USTA teams :)

    Although I no longer live in Boone or Brevard, I'm proud to say they're still in my heart and I cherish many memories of both. Still have family in both towns, the Mimms' in Brevard and the Critchers', the Kellers' and Lancasters' in Boone. Also my high school sweetheart still lives up thereabouts, near Asheville, Marcus Thomas. Wonderful memories indeed.

    you planning on playing the the bbq festival or adult city tournaments this fall? i have to miss the city tournament due to the wfu nebraska football team, but i'll be at the bbq. They are both a lot of fun if you have never tried them out, really good sports for the most part in them.

    Just got back from my NC trip. Checked out the Brevard Racquet Club - it's still in the midst of renovation. It'll be nice when it's done. Also went to Yonahlossee and toured the facility as well as talked to the Pro's and a member. It looks like a great facility as well. I hope we end up in one of those two areas.

    That looks pretty nice. I plan to move to the Boone/Blowing Rock area in the next 6-9 months.
    Hope there's something that good there.
