I used to have a VW van, among other vehicles, for a short time during my semi, quasi, pseudo hippie days, and had a very short tennis bum period ('75-'76) during which we would do mini road trips, but nothing like Clary's bold adventures. I wonder if he ever played at Hardy Park or Holiday Park.

No relation as far as I know. The full name of the one in Fort Lauderdale is the Florence C. Hardy Park, I think.

What do you mean, "being cut"?

Thanks. I'm not a particularly religious guy, but I do like hard boiled eggs a lot.

Thanks for the comments Tom. My first Spring Season league match is this Thursday. I'll be post some video snippets of league match play in this thread and my other thread about trying to become a solid NTRP 3.5 in the Tips/Instruction forum.

Post some vids of your tennis Tom.
