Hey all, I'm on a work trip from London to Dallas for the next couple of weeks. Anybody in the area for a hit? I'm happy to drive and will be in Granbury a couple of times so anywhere in the DFW metroplex works too.

Thanks,
Stef

You should try the Lakes Academy in Frisco, I am housing a WTA player this week who trains there and she says they have a lot of touring pros there, if you're actually a 5.5 they could probably set you up with a hit.

I'm heading through Frisco way so I appreciate the heads up. I'll give them a call.

I appreciate the tag, but I am not a 5.0, also not In Dallas this month, but I do have some tips!.

That was a good reccomendation, Lakes Academy. There are high level players at TBar M and Oak Creek CC. Um, T Bar M might have some players there. Also Mckinney Tennis facility has a good network of local city facilities that could get you a hitting partner out of theit contacts. Brookhaven CC might have some 5.0s to hit with as well.


If you are a Facebook person you could post on "Total Tennis Addicts" it is a 2,000 member dallas facebook tennis group. Could be hit or miss though bc 5.0 level is not the main focus of the group.

There is a really good drill/clinic Monday nights at Fretz tennis center, it's 2 hours 7-9 and has 4.5 level and above players, usually around 25 people. Tons of hitting and variety, good friendly people. I'd highly reccomend it. Just call ahead to make sure it's on for the week, I wouldn't want to surprise you of it was not on that week.

Lifetime fitness centers also have tennis and workout facilities. Might be some 5.0s there.

Granbury won't have any big tennis opportunities that I know of, but TCU is nearby in Ft. Worth, they might have some high level players who play there.

Granbury, funky little town, here's some trivia, the 7 ft tall British actor who played Chewbacca lived his later years there with his lady friend who was a Texan.

Hopefully one of these pans out for you.

I appreciate the detailed reply! I just joined that Facebook group and will enquire at the clubs you mentioned.

Ha, I never knew that about Granbury! All I know is that the lake here is quite pretty and the BBQ is good.

In the end, if you can’t find what you’re looking for let me know. I am in Plano and I play at Lifetime Fitness indoor and could get you in. I am a 4.5
