    I know this is a longshot here, but does anybody know if there's a tennis scene in Laughlin, NV? I know it aint no Vegas, but I do end up there quite a few weekends a year. Is there a reason to bring my gear along next time I head out there, like this coming weekend?

    There is no "tennis scene" but the new Aquarias was Flamingo has 2 hard courts on roof at pool level. They are pretty old but work fine for getting in some hits. I will usually try to get out and hit with my daughter once or twice during a stay. No match making or anthing like that and usually there are very few players contending for these courts, especially in the heat.

    What about on the Bullhead City side? It's probably slim pickin's there too.

    Dont know ? Probably some courts but finding some blind date players would probably be difficult. If you really want to do the casinos and play exciting tennis then Vegas is the place. I have been to North NV stateline at Mesquite and there are some courts at the CasaBlanca Resort & Casino. Wonder if there is some good action there when the weather is warm ? It is a beautiful place to stay and very close to Zion Park UT.

    I'm actually moving to Laughlin for work and I would love to have some folks to hit with without having to drive to Vegas.

    I'm a pretty decent 3.5 possibly getting bumped next season. Holler at me next time you come.

    Will let you know next time I'm out there. Btw, I'm curious, what are your thoughts on moving to Laughlin? Just wondering b/c my impression is that there's not much there.

    I actually grew up in Laughlin if you can believe that. I was there through my Junior year in high school and them we moved away. I've been gone for about 17 years and now I'm coming back for my job.

    There really isn't much there and the wife and I are going to have to drive to Vegas for most of our tennis and other stuff.

    We're mostly homebodies though so hopefully the remoteness wont be too bad.
