    Live in SW Florida, summer in Minnesota, just bought a ball machine. Only God can stop me from playing. At least an hour and a half, anything less is just a tease. IN LOVE WITH THE GAME

    Not nearly enough. Time and rotator cuff problems have kept me off the courts (especially serving).

    3 times a week max for about 1.5-2 hours each time. I would play everday if I could but family and job get in the way.

    I agree. Anything less than an hour and a half is unfulfilling. It takes a least a half hour to get cooking.
    That's one problem with east coast tennis. With the cold and snow, sometimes you can only get an hour in some of the indoor clubs. I liked playing in California, where I could just go play, and stop when I felt like it, not when the buzzer rings.

    Glad multiple answers were allowed. Winter: Once a week. Summer: Four times a week.

    At least 90 minutes each time. In summer we have the *occassional* practice session or match which extends to three hours (but that's a rarity).

    I feel for you guys, I heard about this in NYC, that the buzzer means DONE, even if it's match point. We got gators, bugs, hurricanes, low pay, seasonal tourists who drive like idiots and the worse, an incredible amount of backwards thinking individuals down here for sure, but the saving grace is that my association has four hard courts with lights, no sign up sheets or times limits and no one else around to use them. Asi. la vida es bella

    Because your lines are so narrow. Which means you hit enter after every sentence instead of letting the text automatically "wrap".

    Enjoy the day girl. :)

    It used to be 4-5 times a week but its been 3 weeks now with the weather and end of the semester. I just have to pull the racquets out of the bag and set them out by the tv so they will constantly be within my range of vision. Two estranged prostaff tour 90s and one strawberry red prestige classic call out in desperation.....:(

    LOL, I envy you. Though I get to play 3 days a week, I'd love to be able to at least hit balls on my off days.
