    Got it - I saw Drakulie's post that he lives off Oakland so that is why I asked - club is at Oakland Park just past Pine Island - it is quite nice. Lucky to have Courts in my development that are not bad -

    Has anyone played on the courts in the park in Dania Beach east of US1? - I drive by them a lot and they are lit but have never played there.

    I believe Oscar plays there in Dania. We are trying to get together again, we do that every 3 or 4 months in different locations....keep posting if you're willing to join us.

    FloridaAG, thanks for posting. As Blackfrido already told you, we try to meet every once in a while at different venues. We are currently trying to set up a meet to play at the grass courts at Key Biscayne.

    As for the Sunrise Club, Yes, I have played at that club. Very nice claycourts, and I believe they have 3-4 hardcourts. The BMW Sunrise Tennis Championships is also held there every year. I haven't been there in a long time. Is Yaro still one of the teaching pros???

    I play mostly at the Lauderdale Tennis Club.

    Send me an email, and perhaps we could set up a hit. drakulie@aol.com


    JRStriker, Congrats on the tourney. Great job! You joining us at the US Open this year???

    Correct on all accounts regarding Sunrise. Jaro is still there - he is an excellent guy. We live in East Hollywood but I work in the Cypress Creek area and end up there for a variety of reasons fairly often.

    I will shoot you an e-mail always looking for people to hit with.

    Met up with Drakulie last night for a hit - weather looked grim in the afternoon but ended up clearing up. 2.5 hours or so of pretty hard hitting.

    I can confirm that Drakulie can indeed rip his serve. Good times.

    so, when are we playing? otherwise I think it'd be honest to say that the South Florida Tennis Chapter is over!

    any opinions? Klatu, Oscar2424, Drak, Dr.Punk..........

    What's up everyone? Hope everyone is well. Sorry I haven't been posting. Been very busy.

    On the bright side>> I met FloridAG. Nice guy, and solid player. We all definitely have to meet up. This weekend is bad because of July 4th, but perhaps next weekend?? Let us know.

    Hope everyone is enjoying Wimbledon.
