will be stopping by for three weeks or so. any good places to get a hit with 4.5 players and above?
san marcos, not san mateo. my bad...
LOL. I was going to say, that's a broad range. There's only about 500 miles between San Diego and San Mateo.
The snow around here is making me stupid
I'm a 4.5 and will be in san diego dec 20-27 if interested
I'm in N. county San Diego, (Rancho Bernardo). I'll be around in December.
Cheetah's in the same area though I don't know what his Christmas plans are.
we could organize a TT meetup and maybe a round-robin tournament at a public court during one of those days
What time frame?
I will be on vacation between Dec 25-Jan 1 inclusive.
I'm off from work from 12/22 to 1/1. Pick a time and you're almost guaranteed a sunny day - it's San Diego after all.
Amazingly public courts are harder to come by here. Rancho Bernardo high school is an option - five open and five locked up except if you're a coach and somehow my taxes get to subsidize someone's private lessons. I think Poway High School's courts are still accessible. Mount Carmel has four lousy courts open, and six resurfaced courts locked up (my tax dollars at work again).
My club is a possibility. If it's the middle of the day and we can avoid any tennis camps we can probably get 3 courts to ourselves, but no guarantees. Suresh and possibly Cheetah might have some options.
Sounds good. Just inherited some almost new donnays and thatd be a good baptism by fire
It is raining right now!
If you are here before the 25th, let me know. I belong to a club with lighted courts which is centrally located wrt to where rkelley, cheetah and I are. I need 3 day advance notice to book. I can book 1 court for 1.5 hours, but we can manage one more usually after arriving.
For me, weekdays are possible 6 pm and later. This Saturday and next are good after 3 pm. This Sunday afternoon is also good. But the Sunday before Christmas I am playing the club social.
We re on for this Sunday afternoon.
Seriously? 12/16? I know the courts where Suresh plays. They're nice.
I need a specific time, but I can do it unless I'm running up to LA to buy a car. I'll email Cheetah. He might not know that this conversation is happening.
Alright. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am allowed to book for Sunday only after 8 pm today. I will shoot for 3 pm. It is supposed to be cloudy with a 30% chance of rain in the morning, decreasing to 0 later. 3 pm will be a nice compromise as even if it drizzles till 1 pm, the courts will be dry by 3 pm.
I will make the booking and get back to you. Worst case, we will have one court for 1.5 hours. But usually we can get the "public" court too for an hour in parallel.
I will shoot you an email with the web site of the club which has the directions.
We now just need Bud and Fedace to post here and we are set.
I should be able to be there.
Will Peliwo be there?
haha nope. he'll be training in montreal still
darn. pls bring me an autographed ball
I should be able to make it.
Email sent with the details.
Prematch trashtalk time?
also, my dad's a pretty decent rec player and might want to join us. anyone know a 6th player?
So who's gona be there so far?
Nope. It's just fun to hit the ball.
Sunday rain chance down from 30% to 20%.
More clouds than sun. Highs in the low 60s and lows in the low 50s.
Miramar college has public courts and it is lighted at night.
Or UCSD has courts as well...BUT make sure you play on Saturdays and Sundays only. Weekends are free parking, weekdays they strictly enforce parking.
I have played at both places. The Miramar courts are often crowded, and the opening of the restroom on Sundays is contingent on some game going on.
Same with the UCSD courts. Parking is possible by the streets only, and access to the restroom inside the gym opposite to the courts on Sundays is conditional on the gym being open for some purpose.
Both places have no reservation system.
Rain washed away my playing plans tonight.
I am wondering if being rusty will affect my performance on Sunday. You will recall that Djokovic lost to Federer one time and it was attributed to someone pulling out and not requiring him to play a match.
I can be a 6th, but probably barely before 3:30. I'll contact thejackal by email.
Im no federer
Go to Balboa Park
whats up with all this rain?
Chance of rain Sunday down to 10% !
Cool. Heading to the airport now. The donnays are weighed up and good to go
Windy. Wear a track suit and cap.
I played for 3 hours today and am all warmed up for tomorrow.
I also had a haircut today to make myself more aerodynamic for those fast approaches to the net.
Since I've heard nothing, I'll assume I'm either in a junk email folder or you guys already have enough. Maybe next time.
I sent you an email now.
got your email. been flying for most of yesterday so didnt have a chance to reply. guess suresh is on top of it.
I will be there at 1 pm itself.
More like being there instead of getting bored at home. Wife is already fed up with me this morning.
The meetup went off really well. It was almost a 1 to 5 pm event. Weather cooperated and we managed to get two adjacent courts to ourselves.
great meeting you guys. we ll do it again next weekend hopefully
Next Sunday I will be playing the club Christmas tournament. I will also be playing singles Friday night, so I want to take Saturday off and run some errands. And then it is off to Honolulu till New Year, where I will be attending a clinic by the beach the day after I arrive
You guys go ahead and plan something.
any way I could sign up for said tournament? how are the levels split up, or is it just 1 draw
Great meeting guys. Thanks for coming out. That was fun. Too bad it wasn't so much of a tennis vibe due to the rain and people not showing up at the club. I can play any day you guys are free. I have courts at my place in rancho bernardo but they are actually closed due to maintenance now. Rich also belongs to a club in RB too.
Let's try to get something going before you leave. Your dad is pretty good.
Off the wall let me know if you ever want to hit.
his best shot by far is the lob. he pretty much cant hit hard enough to break an egg otherwise lol
if you know a good place to play after 6pm, we could get a couple of sets in on a weekday this week.
