    Anyone here live in the metro Richmond area? I'm just getting back on the court after an achilles rupture and am really itching to hit some balls. I can't chase down anything yet...just some light sparring. I'm a solid 4.5 at 100% and my availability is wide open. Shoot me a PM if interested. Thanks. -Tim

    Looks like 8.5 is happening. I got a text from a dude captaining (Don) and he's saying the first match is Sunday.

    No clue if tri-level will come together.

    Just heard about 8.5. Not sure if I can do it as I have the next few weekends taken up (Grass Court Nationals this weekend, taking daughter back to school the following weekend), then soccer starts up. Need to see the full schedule before committing.

    Angle Queen is from just north of Richmond, but haven't seen her around in a while. Good luck on your rehab...a ruptured achilles is no joke!

    3.0 and I like beer slushies and pho. A close second would be Chinese restaurants with rats jumping on the tables.

    Awesome. I'm hoping to get back up there for fall break to see the leaves but it's touch and go right now.

    Anybody have any tennis instructor recommendations in D.C. proper? Not looking for group lessons, but rather one-on-one weekly lessons. Thanks!

    Anyone ever been to Mobile Alabama? Apparently that's where 3.5 Nationals are this year!

    That's right...we won! So did Downs' team!

    (***and we did without having any self-rated 'ringer's, sandbaggers, and otherwise interestingly rated players)

    TheJRK!

    Welcome back.

    Were you not in San Diego? Leaving that nice weather/beaches must of been difficult. Like you learning a kick serve from days past.

    On a brighter note. I became a father a week ago. First child. A son. Wimbledon 2034 training has begun.

    I know, how did we get the short end? Oh well, my 40+ team could go too, and that's in Cali. Not sure I'd make both trips, though that's getting ahead of myself.

    I've heard the facility in Alabama is nice though.

    Not sure on the bump up, I certainly wasn't expecting it and my 3.5 record is kinda average, but I haven't been playing as much either. I imagine it will probably depend on whether or not I go, and how I do, at Nationals. Sectionals I was 1-1, both close. The bracket with the 3.5 teams was all very close too.

    might depend on how your team does at nationals...if they do well, then that probably means your section was strong? maybe you get double bumped to 4.5...good luck!

    our team is completely stacked...haha, wouldn't be surprised if they won it...

    what's for lunch people?

    Well, my whole sneaker collection never made it so everyone keep an eye out for size 13 Jordan's (3s 4s and 5s) and Vapors on the bay. I'll just end up claiming them through the moving company.

    Yeah, the Mrs. is going back to Bethesda.

    I want three. I'm in South Florida, so you'll have to make the move.

    On a side note: I can't wear sandals with pants/jeans. I call it theJRK rule. I also avoid cutting into an avocado with a shaky hand. I call that the Plastic Man rule.

    Alabama is easily drivable and the room rates should not kill you. Its just a simple extended weekend trip, doesn't really count as a regular trip. Win your 40+ and do both I say

    Slick move posting about moving back and losing your shoes and all that.

    But we now that was simply to butter us up and pawn off you Sonic XXL Rooftop carrier.

    We are trying to get Zap to hook us with Legg Mason courts again but he is too busy stealing CHICS rackets and not returning dem janks thinking they will call and he can hook it up.
