    Tennis Warehouse-New York City chapter

    That's right. We New Yorkers want a chapter too from the east side to the west side and all 5 boroughs. Although we're actually a street ball playing city, we'll play tennis too by calling next on the tennis courts just like we do on the basketball courts.

    tennis in NYC is tough. i lived near west 4th for 2yrs. my options were to either pay an arm and a leg for the chelsea piers or hull my ass to columbia U where we played on the roof.

    You could have just gone to one of the many outdoor courts during the warm weather season and yes, I know they're not in the Village.

    I just googled that pic, but no, unfortunately meg doesn't live in NYC as she opted to go south for school. Dedans, Phil's asking about the female athlete in the other thread. Should I give him her number so his rudeness could break up her engagement?

    Phil wants her number post #106

    too many ppl gawking at you when you play. it's painful to feel that sear on the back on my neck. free public court is at a premium, you'd be lucky to not wait over an hour during "normal" hours

    These are your options. You can pay for a season pass to any NYC parks court for about a hundred bucks and that lasts from April to November I believe. I play in Nassau county where the courts are free and the wait isn't that bad as long as you don't come on a summer night so to sum it up, you can get a parks pass or play in NC like I do.

    Did you mean His ROYAL Rudeness?

    On the contrary, when it comes to "female" athletes, Phil is a legend. The terms 'stud muffin', 'chick magnet', lady's man'??? They all originated with Phil. I heard that Phil once kissed a girl and put her in the hospital. The attending physician then had to tell the girl's parents: "she'll be ok....but I think it's gonna take a month to get the smile off her face." :eek:

    I meant the noun (rudeness) or adjective (rude), and not the title (his rudeness). The female athlete was quite nice, but I don't think her fiance would approve of us hanging out.

    BTW, that is not a pic of Albany, dammit!

    Yes, Dedans is correct in that those terms are indelibly linked to my "athletic" prowess. Any woman in training for athletics, needs to adapt unconventional training methods in order to prevent plateauing. Rickson, as a professional trainer, is well aware of this concept. By the way, my rudeness crown is still not secure-I'm in the process of engineering a coup against some nasty bastiches who make my behavior look like Mary Poppins'.

    Don't worry, Rickster...we'll take care of the fiance;-)

    The original gangstas, Phil and Dedans Penthouse, live in the New York area. Let's have a meet and greet. BYOF (bring your own female). In case you were wondering, that was for Phil.

    As a true New Yorker, I don't ask. I rape and pillage your villages of Nassau and Suffolk. You Long Islanders can't stop us New Yorkers.

    Come on now. How do I know when they're joking or serious? I don't know in which county you grew up. I grew up in Queens county which is the biggest county/borough in NYC.

    would love to see a Long ISland vs. NYC chapter meet. eventually we should have TW Cup/Tournment with all the chapters. also glad to see you starting a chapter up there. (although it will never be as good as the MAC.)

    I have non TW members in my chapter. We have the infamous line call Raul: noone can hook you better! We've got the pusher extraordinaire, Richie: He just goes on and on and on so you'd better put him away while you can! We can't forget about Mr. Slice and Dice Lou: This guy will cut you up faster than a Ginsu knife! And we can't forget about the beast from the east, Rickson: Let's just say I prefer the net over the baseline. This is just part of the NYC chapter. You have been warned!
