Hah. I just called the tennis center, There's a Districts tournament on Friday and Saturday! Looks like yet again, our TW PNW meet will be delayed
They're still pretty much hung up. I ended up coaching my son's junior USTA tennis team over the summer so that kept me involved, and he's about to start high school and his tennis there so I've been helping there a bit as well.What happened to hanging up those rackets for good for a few years? That was shortlived...
Prices aren't really that great, TBH. The clearance store south of seattle (an hour further down) has some good scores. The women ALWAYS have a nice selection of high end shoes (Breathe cage IIs, BCIs, etc) for $35. The guys' versions tend to cost around ~60. They have grass (dimpled) and clay (full zig zag) versions of shoes there on occasion, too. (I see oscillates (originals) a lot).anyone ever score anything good at the nike or adidas outlets north of seattle?
Hey harryz, i'd be up for hitting sometime when the weather gets better, we can hit outside
You back now and playing seniors?Guys, I hate to say it but I'm done. I tweaked my right ankle in a match last weekend. It's a minor form of the same injury that required surgery on my left ankle, and I'm shut down, at a minimum, until the swelling goes down and I get an MRI, which will probably confirm that I've got a partial separation of my tendon sheath. I'm not sure if surgery is in my near future, but judging from how it feels, I'd say the chances are 50/50.
Anyhow, my schedule just got moved forward, and the only tennis I'll be playing until the summer of 2011 will be recreational hitting with my son and wife. It's been great getting together with you guys, and I hate to miss this one. I'll leave it up to one of the rest of you to organize it, and crunch a few forehands for me when you get together.
The very best of luck to all of you, and I'll see you guys around here again in a couple of years!
