    Did you contact Memorial TC and check about drills???? I know they had them but it's possible due to most work schedules they would be in the late afternoon or evenings.......morning workouts are usually full of women league players.

    Close by you also have the indoor MET downtown....it's right on Smith St just south of the Shell and Texaco Heritage buildings - its the huge brown building that sits on top of the Smith St Parking structures - cant miss it.

    Anyone from around the Woodlands area looking for a hitting partner. I'm 23 and was playing 5.0 level last year before hurting my shoulder....looking for anyone wanting to hit!

    There is a bunch of us guys that play at Forest Oaks Swim & Tennis. It is a bit south of the woodland but a lot of the guys live in the general area. Everyone is around 4.0-5.0. Also Wednesday nights at Forest Oaks there are singles matches at 6:30pm.

    The Club - (The Woodlands Tennis Club) on Auburn Lakes is a fairly new tip notch facility - also of course the Woodlands Country Club

    The Club has a pretty big group and the fees are not out of line - lots of solid 4.0 - 5.0 are regulars

    Yes we play matches. I think the guest fee for the club is like $5 or $10, but there is no fee for the matches. It is something new the pro is starting and he wants it to be a regular thing. His name is Ken Sjoberg (281) 451-8782

    I would call him first. Like I said it is a new thing he is trying to start so he doesn't always get people every week, so it would be better to just call him and see if he has any guys for that particular week.

    I live in Houston and am always up for a hit, especially with higher level players.
