Any Vegas members want to hit? I’m a solid 4.0 to low 4.5. Shoulder is jacked up so can’t serve but can rally and drill. Well I can serve underhanded.

I can get you with some folks .... That is a Mon - Wed ... my club has an advanced drill (no one under 4.0 and plenty of 4.5/5.0 players) in the evening on both Mon and Wed

PM me closer to the dates

Maybe I will zip out for those days to meet up. I assume @OnTheLine that is at Darling? That is the group there( with Coach John?) my son and I jump in when visiting.

It would be awesome to meet you. :cool:
I slapped a reminder on my calendar. It's a short 4 hour drive for me and we zip out there often. Well, used to all the time, but I can work something in with the wife and she can grab her girlfriends while I get some tennis in. :) I'll see if work gets busy or I can swing it. (y)

If you both zip up here I will gladly get you all set up with some 4.0 men's matches only if you also let me set up a 7.5 mixed match with yours truly.

Actually, even if you won't ... I will still strive to get you set up with folks if you need them.

And yes John's clinic although he is not the only one who runs it these days (recovering from 3 shoulder surgeries over past year)

Thx. Always enjoy meeting people from the board and getting to know the personalities behind the keyboard. I met a lot of my very good tennis friends via TT. :)

Great, thank you for the info. Do you know if they have demo rackets? If so I wouldnt have to bring mine and I dont really care what I play with in a non match situation.

So you get there Monday, is that open to play that day? I am thinking I can zip up Sunday evening and play Monday, then I can zip home. I can do it any of those days, but that's a bit easier. Just let me know so I can schedule it.

We are driving to Vegas on Sunday. My wife will be attending a training sessions on Monday so that would work out beautifully. :)

Just for the record you guys both are on my "bad list". I have a match Monday morning followed by that work thing and would have loved to have at least met both of you.
Heads up: Ladies' weekday 4.0 has matches Monday mornings and with the academy and clinics going on you may wish to call to get a court reserved. Number is 702-229-2100

Thank you for the heads up on darling!

You could always bail on your Monday match to hit with us. :)

Bummer. Not sure how I missed this, but was at least hoping to say hello. All good though. If you can sneak away and at least put faces with names that woudl be cool.

Great to meet and hit with @SRUalum, @OnTheLine, and @ChaelAZ. Some wonderful people on the forum! :)

Had no idea chaelAZ was so well known in the tennis community and is such good friends with Agassi. ChaelAZ messaged Agassi that he’d be at Darling hitting this morning and guess who drops by???

Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf and Grigor Dimitrov!!! :oops::cool:

Great day of tennis!

Life at Darling Tennis Center is great. We do get jaded by the regular visits from tennis greats like AA, SG, GD and of course @ChaelAZ

Was terrific hitting with everyone .... glad you put up with this 3.5 lady as long as you did.

Also glad we got off the courts before the wind really started picking up!

Lol. Was an great time and loved just hitting and chatting. Wish we had the whole day. Was great to see Andre, Stephie, and Grigor for sure.

Thank you for the meet up and will be back for more soon. And a Cali trip for sure.

Had another hit this morning with @SRUalum. Since I couldn’t serve due to my shoulder, we rallied for 45 mins, volleyed for 30 and he served and we played out points for the last 15 mins. Really fun hit! Had a great time. Shame he’s not closer because he is an awesome hitting partner. Thanks, @SRUalum!

Thanks for making the trip out again, definitely a great time! When I get into SoCal for work, we’ll have to meet at your stomping grounds for a hit.
