    I've done this twice with a website called Tennismatch.com I think. Very poor results. Once while in Vegas and once in Florida.

    I entered info for a hitting partner at the 4.5 level. Got 2 or 3 responses. We met and my gosh, the guy in Vegas didn't even know how to keep score! The person in Fl was also a total beginner. Neither could keep the ball in play or even within the fence! I asked both of them how they determined their rating and they both felt they had rated themselves. Weren't even close! A complete waste of my time.

    So, going to Fl next week and I have a few people set up. I'm trying the USTA site which should be much better. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Anyone else tried this?

    For me, the USTA partner finder worked well. I was in NYC and tried it. He was solid 4.5 and he showed me a couple places in the city to play for free. Then he invited me to play at a club in Brooklyn. The person was a good tennis player and was an even better person.
