    McLovin, Double checking to make sure I have transportation... do you want me to reserve? I doubt they even check if you are a TOH resident

    McLovin, just called the tennis center. Apparently Bready park courts are booked all day Monday and Tuesday. They had some evening times available. Any other suggestions?

    Sup, would it be possible to set something up at Sport and Health?

    I can play. I just have to hit one handers. Which is fine, since I taught myself it the last 2 years.

    I heard herndon is booked. I can try to see if tomorrow there is open court time at S&H. I have to be on the court the entire time. Can you send me your contact info again to Sup2dresq@aim.com.

    Thought you couldn't make any others due to Chris beating you up in boxing class.

    Yes, there is one more than the new session starts. So you'll show?! Awesome.

    I posted about this.

    You know, not that I can't try to get free time, but if you want... and its okay to say otherwise...but if McLovin is getting ready for a tournament, I can run both you guys through drills.

    Reason i say that, is because I wont have any problems getting a court from the director. Otherwise it depends on her mood. She seems cool most of the time, but it may be a busy week with so many peeps off work. So.....

    So 2 hours for $37.50 each. 1 hour drills, 1 hour you two can play each other. Get Mclovin set and ready.

    E-mail sent.

    As it turns out, Tuesday is better for me as I have to get some last minute shopping done on lunch tomorrow. If we're going for 2 hours, 10 AM start might be better, but I can do 11 if that is all we can get.

    Are you okay with the drills then match play between you and auzzie? I can spot the time now if Auzzie is okay with price and time.

    Let me know asap.

    I'd be down for whatever. Two hours of hitting, could also do some drills, either/or. I would like to have some hitting time, as point construction will give me an even better idea of whether or not to purchase MComp's as opposed to just drilling. And the least money spent option would be preferential for me on the verge of buying new frames.

    Too slow for school. Just called Sport and Health for Tuesday morning.

    Junior/Camp took all the day spots until 3pm.

    I can try to give Worldgate a call. There is also Annandale Sport and Health.

    I thought they lost their tennis courts. Their website doesnt list indoor courts anymore. They used to have them. *shrug*.

    The courts are now being operated separately...that part of the club was indeed sold. The court facility is no longer under the Sport and Health umbrella.

    I'm in work by 6, so I'm good for any morning times. Early evening is out as I have stuff going on Monday & Tuesday evening, and I can't judge what traffic will be like so close to X-mas (i.e. can't afford a 2-hour commute.)

    Oh, and the sticks are down to $140 all around, but I do have a 10% coupon from that place in the mid-west. Its good until the end of the year...

    Oh yeah...another mixed match, another sandbagger. Guy was just bumped to 4.0 (after playing a season of 3.5 AND 4.5!!!), gal was a 3.5. We held our own for most of the match, but he went into overdrive, and we lost 5-7, 1-6. *sigh*

    Sup, we played well, though...our best match yet! I do think, when we play the next season (which is the official USTA season), our results will be much better (especially after playing with all these sandbaggers this season!).

    It is because this league is during the end of the USTA year. Ratings are updated halfway through the season, and people are allowed to play out at their lower rating. It allows for a lot of abuse, but that is also why this is not the 'official' USTA mixed season.
     
  37. topaz, why aren't YOU moving up in ratings too!!! :confused:

    :shock:
    uh oh ... i went there!

    Hey man, I was happy to not get moved down!

    I think it has something to do with not winning matches! :oops: Though, many people who did beat me got moved up. Beating Topaz does wonders for everyones' ratings, except for mine!!!

    Um, yeah, but I would like to think the hard work I've done on footwork and improving my technique and strategy will make the biggest difference. Yes, the new racquet is very nice, very comfortable, helps me with control, and I'm glad I switched; but like I saw another poster write in another thread...it isn't the arrow, but the indian!!! :) Regardless of racquet, it is still up to *me* to get the job done.

    PS...holy moly, tomorrow's high is 27?!?! YIKES!!!
