    I'm a 4.0 player that's going to be in the Tampa area later on October 28th thru the 30th. I'm not totally sure yet of my schedule there (with family), but if you would be able to play some singles possibly then get in touch. Would love to do something on a surface other than hard courts if you had some "pull". Please put "Tampa Tennis" in the subject...

    all the best, Doug

    Lots of clay court possibilities in the Tampa area, like at the Harbour Island Club, the Tampa Racquet Club, and the MP Tennis Center. Plus, there's a facility right near the downtown Tampa Marriott hotel.

    Doesn't kill tennis, plenty of Har Tru in the Ft. Lauderdale area, though you may have to play an 80 year old.

    Yeah an 80 yr old that could kick most all of our a**es.....plenty of great places. Holiday Park (Jimmy Evert Tennis Ctr) the Largest with 18 har tru courts cheap (city facility) and plenty of folks to play with. I get there every six weeks or so and never have an issue getting a game set up. Also check out Pro Tennis World about 10 min away from the FLL airport in Davie and they can help match you up.
