    I think a map with the locations of all members who wish to be located would be a great idea. This used to be possible through the now-defunct Frappr site, but I've been told that it could be accomplished through Google Maps with a little knowledge of script.

    Does anyone else think that this is a good idea?

    Added: Pin your home court location on the map: (Gmail ID required)
    http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=213166334046722441379.0004ae1a09ca0c6165f8a

    TO ADD LOCATION: (DD edit)
    I figured it out. click the Edit button on the left, and then right click the spot that you want to place yourself and click "Add a placemark".

    Edit: In case of privacy issues, please pin location of your home courts instead of your residence.

    I'm under witness protection program, but I play at Conard HiSchool in West Hartford occasionally. Incognito.

    You could probably set up something on Travelpod, with a little finagling.

    I didn't say I wanted to be found. I don't think I owe you money, and I'm pretty sure you don't owe me money. I just thought it would be a cool feature.

    I used to live in California. That would have been easy to find. Now that I live someplace else, I can't find it. I owe that to the CA public skoolz systim.

    I figured it out. click the Edit button on the left, and then right click the spot that you want to place yourself and click "Add a placemark".

    The satellite images have improved incredibly in my area. I placed myself on court 2 at our home courts (at the net, of course).

    On the deuce side, looking to come in
    :shock: No kidding! I just looked up our club...and dang if there aren't people on-court. I looked for my car in the parking lot or my tennis bag on-court but couldn't find it. Based on the shadows (and the fact that the pool is open but fairly empty), I'm guessing it was taken somewhere between 9:30am and 10:15am. All the shade is gone on Court 1 by the 10:30am time slot. The players are changing sides so they're not during one of the court time changes.

    Can't add myself...as I have no google (or FB or twitter) acct. How 20th Century am I?

    A buddy of mine just sent me a Google maps link to his neighborhood tennis courts and there we both are on court in the photo. Neither of us saw the Google car go by.

    When I got out of the Army, Salem State was on my short list, but I ended up going to Champlain College in Vermont.

    Bump for the MAP. If you have a Google ID, add the location of your home courts.
