Hitting partner in Melbourne

I know that this doesn't concern a WTA player, but I am a tennis player, so I'm not entirely off-topic .

I'm new to Melbourne and very sad that I haven't played tennis in the time I've been here. What suggestions do you have? I'm pretty sure that the U.S. has a website where you can find players in your area and at your level. Is there something similar in Australia? I don't have the funds to go to a club and hit with a teaching pro (and I'm certified as a teaching pro myself, so I wouldn't want to give someone money for a job that I would prefer to have myself!!), and I would prefer to play on free public courts- if they exist.

I'm not particularly picky with the level of whoever wants to play, but it would be nice to hit with someone who at least has a solid level. I'll be rusty, for sure, but I'm not inexperienced.

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You can post on Tennis Australia.... Despite posting there I've never ever gotten a reply.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Try Gumtree, I met my current hitting partner there, a former top 10 junior from Columbia! Also met a few other College players out from UK/USA in Melbourne too on there.
