    Can anyone hit late AMs/early PMs near Dr Phillips? I'm trying to get back into playing again but can't travel far.

    I've never seen you write about playing tennis, I'm stunned. ;)

    I played for years during my 20's/30's, tapered off a bit after that, started hitting in earnest for two years before I started the biking and now would like to find a hitting buddy or two nearby with similar level and availability. I can keep the ball in play for rallying and God knows my legs are stronger now. Gotta loosen up the shoulder but I'll use the sureshsian mantra of "the conscious movement of the right shoulder" while practicing my rusty serve.:p

    Hey dGoran- whats up? want to hit sometime? I see you are selling some pure strikes-wouldn't mind trying them out. I have 2 PT57As that are great-but I'm thinking maybe I need some stiffness /power to get my serve mph up -what do you think? Need to get some expert racket advice from you man.

    Didnt know you were in orlando, enjoyed your posts here. Im two stop signs away from ft gatlin, i prefer not to travel too far to hit. I prefer to ralley more than play/run unless half court doubles or something.

    Let me know, if im really bad i have a nice cart (foldable master pro $180, really nice, holds like 225) in trunk and can feed you balls :)

    Man, I forgot I posted this...it was quite a while back.

    I'd love to hit sometime but I no longer have a car to roam Orlando. My nearest public courts are at Lake Cane but there's a court near me on I-Drive and Carrier that I can use because a friend of mine lives on the hotel property. Is that too far for you?

    Big Alex is just part time at the desk now...Marcelo's son runs the show now.

    I'll keep you posted if things change for the better mobility wise. I'm working to save some cash to buy a vehicle that can get me extra work out of town.

    I got back into tennis again playing in a ladder league at Fort Gatlin. I only play on hard courts these days under protest so it has been a long while since I've been over there.
