THEY AREN’T THE ONLY TENNIS PLAYERS ON THE COURT

It's my turn (finally)...

Although about four pro tournaments are going on around the world right now (see story below) my envy is diminishing. It’s now warm enough to play outdoors and I have played twice this week with my friend Roseann. We played at 11 a.m. on Monday, when it was really hot, and again today (Wednesday) at 9 a.m., when it was more comfortable.

I’ve once again signed up with Tennis Philly, www.tennisphilly.com, for the fourth season, so soon I’ll be playing a lot more matches with people from that group. In past years I have played about 2 matches a week. Tennis Philly provides me with a list of a dozen or more players at my skill level and who live in my area. We play at public courts. Without this group, my life in tennis would be a big zero (and I don’t mean love), since I don’t know many people who are available to play. If you live in the Philly metro area, go to www.tennisphilly.com, which is sponsored by Tennis League Network, www.tennisleaguenetwork.com. The network has online tennis communities in more than 25 metro areas, so mostly likely you can find players no matter where you live. I’ll report back on my matches as the season gets going later this month.
Meantime, since I posted this, I have set up a match for next week with someone from Tennis Philly. Chantal is from French-speaking Canada. I'll let you know how it goes. Bonsoir!
