    Granted, I work out of my house, but I like to keep them by my desk.
    Otherwise, I'd have to walk into another room when I get the sudden urge to spin one in my hand or feel the strings...

    I walk around the house swinging it around. When I finally become conscious of this, I put it away in shame of my own behaviour.

    When I'm leaving work to play, my rackets are in the office.

    At home I always have a racket handy. Home protection.

    I'm guilty of the same. Except for the shame part. Character flaw, I guess.

    Now who keeps their racket AND stringmeter handy?? C'mon, I'm not the only one.

    Yup, I always have some around my desk (waiting for their turn in the line-up or something).

    I admit to frequent racquet fondling (as my wife refers to it) whenever watching matches on TV...just gotta have my racquet in hand to truly enjoy the match. :)

    You should only be ashamed if there is also a hole in your pocket.

    Cool. I have two racquets in my cube with me here at work. Lessons after work today. Brought them in since it's too hot out there in the car for my babies...

    I have my entire ski quiver and my tennis racquets in my home office.

    Working from home has its advantages

    Love your sig dude. Anyways yeah everytime I get my racquets restrung I always have them lying around my desk. They distract me a lot when I'm trying to do homework. Anyone ever watch pros on youtube while having a racquet near. After the vids I usually just start swinging the racquet around.
