    Found some great people to hit with my last trip to NYC on here and thought I would try it again for my upcomming trip to PSP.

    I'll be in Palm Springs/Indian Wells later this month for a conference and would really like to find someone to hit with. I'm staying at the Hyatt Grand Champions whatever that means but they have no tennis.

    I'm a 5.0-5.5. Some time on the grass would be the ultimate!

    Thanks for any input and advice.

    Nobody?

    Not having much luck. Head pro at Indian Wells Tennis Garden can only find me some 4.0-4.5 senior players and La Quinta hasn't even responded...I thought finding tennis in Palm Springs would be easy.

    Just a thought, if you do hit with one of us 4.5 players we may actually give you a better workout, we will TRY really hard to give you all you can handle. I have a 5-5.5 player I play against, sure he beats my brains in BUT he knows I am there and my level of play is being raised. He gets a chance to work on his game as well. We talked about this exact issue, he takes this time to work on pieces of his game that he doesn't get many chances to work on.
    Please give us 4's a chance, you might be surprised what we can bring to your game.

    returned from a great trip

    The IWTG came through...not any players at my level but they were very friendly, helpful, found me tennis, and didn't charge me to play. I would suggest contacting them if you are ever in the area and want to find some tennis.

    I had the most fun playing doubles with the senior guys, they can really play and if I just took the pace off the ball we could have some really fun points. Played one day of singles with a guy who was suppose to be a 5.0-5.5 not as much fun as I beat up on him 2 & 0 and let up as I could see he wasn't having much fun.
