    So... I'm visiting in San Francisco, and I'm sorely tennis-deprived. So I had the bright idea of asking if anyone on these boards happens to live close enough for a match... I'm staying fairly near the park, and I've seen a tennis complex with lots of courts - that's within walking distance of me. Would anyone be willing to meet me there, maybe hit around for a while or maybe play a set or a match? I'd have to borrow a racquet from whoever I'm playing, I don't have my own with me... I'm somewhere between a 4.0 and a 4.5, probably would be about a 4.0. This would have to be somewhere in the next week or two, you can either leave a reply here or email me at savfan104 at tennis.com and we'll work out the details.

    Thanks in advance if anyone is willing to play,

    Wherever I go, there I am...

    Check the boards at the GG clubhouse; they're usually full of requests for matches with most listing abilities/ratings. GG Park is also busy on weekends and you might be able to pick up a match then.

    I highly suggest you rent a racquet beforehand so there isn't too much of an imposition on your prospective partner/opponent. The pro shop at the clubhouse may have some available. If you have transpo you might also check SF State's courts on weekends for pick up games; no pro shop there but a lot of Peninsula folks come up for some play.

    Hope this helps...

    Hmmm, does BART stop near the GG courts? If so I can cross the bay and hit with you. How long you in SF for? Email me at colin@cramikskim.com if you are interested.
