find 2 hours for us! email me; we would love to have you. and Bette as well!
why not? we are just meeting up to hit around. this isnt a fraternity or anything like that. get permission and email me!
count me in
just sent you an email. welcome aboard!
i am in virginia and near DC.
Also for convenience Zapvor has created a group on meshtennis.com for us. Please join us here at
email me please
Count me in too! I normally hit with ShcMad so I would certainly be up for some hitting with TW'ers as well.
I'm still down at college till May 4th though, so if we have a meeting after that. I'm all in.
zapvor, excellent job!!! Seems like you got a lot of people interested. Can't wait to hear how it goes, and see some pictures of fellow TW'ers.
outstanding! please shoot me and email and i will catch you up!
thank you sir. it all started with you.
It's going good Han. Looking forward to getting out and hitting.
so far a lot of you have yet to cast you vote. i take it everyone 'overhit' with their celebration last night for the establishment of mid atlantic chapter and is too hungover to vote
for those who havent emailed me please do so. thanks everyone.
hehe, you're very right. I was so happy to see so many members showing support for the mid-atlantic chapter that i forgot to cast my vote.
I'm pretty much free almost everyday these days since school is over and I have to yet get a summer job, so I'm pretty flexible with timing. But, the thing is that next week, my family and I are moving from house to house, so I'm pretty busy until May 3rd. But, after that, I should be free. By then, my hitting partner PurePrestige will also be back from school.
The public courts do get a little full over the weekends and week nights. Reservation is not essential I would say. But, it would be a nice thing to have. As far as park choices, I'm up for Nottoway, Wakefield, or any Reston area parks. I usually go to Nottoway or Wakefield to hit with friends. Wakefield has a lot more courts than Nottoway which has 4 good hard court ones and 2 rubberized crappy courts.
ILoveCarlos and Starlite should also come out for the meet since they also live in the DC area!
northern va as well
Just sent you an e-mail.
FYI - Sundays are usually best for me. I can also do Wednesdays sometime if my soccer team isn't playing.
i am so happy too-membership is exceeding my expectations. but we can get more! Ilovecarlos and Starlite needs to sign up. and thank you for casting your vote
Thank you for signing up gentlemen-welcome to the chapter!
The title is misleading really- this is the Mid-Atlantic Chapter VIP Member list
In descending order of skill level:
1. zapvor (me)
10. Bad Dog
I think I may have missed 1 or 2 people. If your name is not on the list, please email me and remind me of your TW screename so I can match it up with your email.
So where are you guys gonna meet up?
we havent decided yet
i need to know where before i talk to my parents about it
You should probably put me towards the bottom if we're listing members in descending skill level. :-(
Don't be so harsh on yourself man. You have a good game.
right now we are leaning towards wakefield. where would you like to vote for? you can vote too!
yea i put you up there ShcMad because that's as close as you will ever get to that spot again
Thanks, James. That's very kind of you. :smile:
It's been two years since I've really taken an interest in tennis, so I definitely feel like I lack the match experience that comes with time. And, I'm still in the process of adjusting/improving my strokes little by little, so I feel there's still a long way to go. But, I really love tennis, so I don't find it hard to devote time into improving my game.
Besides, I think I was born a self-destructing nutcase (like Gaudio), so don't worry too much about me being too harsh on myself. Thanks for the encouraging words though.
Well, it looks like at least we have a clown in the Mid-Atlantic group. JK!
welcome back to the game! in all seriousness, i am most likely by far the lowest rated in the group...so i am sure you will be fine, rusty or not. as for the self destruction, i cant help you there.
what? i put you in 2nd seed! you should be thanking me
Actually the second seed is the last on the draw
whoa, i suck! haha
great thread by the way, where is wakefield?
Ok boys...this week is kind of bad for me...but next week, as far as Mon and Wed are concerned, may be a possibility. I'm playing on three teams right now, so the matches are starting to pile up.
I'm still wary of this whole thing...worried I'm gonna feel like the 'mom' of the group!
Sorry, you'll have to earn the title "Mom". Bring the cookies and we'll give you a badge
*eyebrow* I don't do cookies!
i think i am going to notch you down to #10 on the list buddy.
i have never been to wakefield, but if you click on MrHan's link it should tell you...
oh, you are still in top 10,so you dont suck
hahhahaha. what do you do then 'mom'??
In order to make it easier to keep track of suggestions,votes, random comments, etc I am going to list the voting options on here so we can all get a better feel. This way I am not sending out emails constantly and answering questions. A lot of you haven't replied to the emails anyways.
List of courts to pick from:
Reston area courts (MrHan & company has the hook up)
South Run Rec center
As you can see this list is short because a lot of you have not made suggestions!
As for day, it looks like everyone is busy this coming week, so let's plan for the week after. Please let us know what day works for you so we can find an overlap. Finally, best wishes to those moving, playing matches, studying for final exams, etc.
I appreciate you seeding me #2 but that's putting me pressure under pressure. :smile:
And, I'm voting for Nottoway, Wakefield, or Reston area courts. But, Nottoway gets packed easily in week nights and weekends, and there's only 6 courts in total whileas Wakefield has about 10.
ah. well you guys are the best of the best. you shall rise to the occasion under pressure....or fail....
Wakefield has nice courts.
I actully will have final exams all through May (stupid HS schedule), so I hope this gets off the ground and I might be able to join y'all in June.
MrHan -- Thank you for the welcome. Interesting that you're playing at Haines Point on Monday nights; last summer my USTA league played there on Saturdays. As the proverb said, I lived in “interesting times.”
I live in maryland...
where in md?
i have final exams until may 15th but after that i will be free and flexible.
Well, I'm not a mom...but still prolly a good couple of years older than you guys.
ShcMad, oh Shcmad. #2 eh?
Shoot, what were our set scores on friday night, I don't even remember.
Was it you that beat me 6-3 6-1?
oh...i think most of us on here are fairly old....except for the one kid who needs to get permission from his parents. besides, girls are like wine-they get better with age. or soemthing. or if they bring cookies
you arent even in the top 10 buddy, so stop it
