    Let's say I can move anywhere in the US. My only criterion is that I can count on playing two hours of outdoor tennis every day. So I need two things: good weather and a good tennis community. Where should I move to?

    Variation on the above: I'm willing to move anywhere in the world. Where should I move? :?:

    Thanks for posting the pictures, your club looks really nice. Is it just me or does the red clay seem out of place?...I somehow don't picture Australians playing on clay. But it is beautiful.

    I agree with the other posters. The club looks great. Are you receptive to middle age Yanks with adolescents? :)

    Any other suggestions.

    If you don't mind humidity, my town of Mandeville Louisiana has a vibrant tennis community. We're a small town about 25 miles from the best eating in the country (New Orleans). We have very little cold weather and only an occaisional hurricane!

    Mandeville was mentioned in Tennis Magazine (November 1999) as one of the great tennis communities in the country.

    Here's a link to the club to which I belong:

    hahahahaha as much as it looks like red clay, it isnt. Its actually called en-tau-car which is a kindof clay varient. The dirt isnt as fine and it plays alot faster. The majority of clubs here in Melbourne do actually have this surface. We'd be receptive to any kindof people in ozzieland!! :p

    Florida sucks. While it is true you can play year round, there is nothing else good about this God forsaken hell hole.

  17. Compton, CA. Simultaneously dodging bullets while hitting the ball will make you a better tennis player. It worked for Serenus.

    Atlanta, GA...Year round tennis...Out doors!

    USTA team tennis is alive and well from 1.0 to open level...
    ALTA team tennis is great if you like doubles
    KSwiss singles leagues are very active
    T2 tennis leagues for people who like doubles but not the team aspect
