There's a gay tour and I'm wondering if anyone has played a Tournament? I played one in New Hope, PA in 2002. It was pretty fun after I got comfortable.

Back in the mid/late 90s I played 2-3. It was fun. I just loved playing tennis so it was no big deal to me.

That sounds like a lot of fun. How do you go about getting involved with that?

Plunge:


To thrust or throw forcefully into a substance or place: “Plunge the lobsters, head first, into a large pot of rapidly boiling salted water” (Craig Claiborne)

Add butt to that. Et voilà.

Sorry if I'm ignorant or something, but why should there be special tournaments for gay people? Can't gay people play with straight people? Secluding yourselves by playing tournaments based on your sexual preference just seems odd to me, it is not a step forwards in the direction of acceptance of all people, seems to me to be a step backwards.

Why, in this context of course:

(obviously with it being gay jousting, it would be in more fashionable clothing)

it sounds more like just something fun and social for gay people who like tennis. it doesn't seem to be like purposely secluding themselves to me.

Well I don't know considering I have never even heard of them before, but the poster of this thread said there was a gay "tour" which would mean multiple tournaments. I understand they are probably just for fun, but why not just have fun playing tennis with other people, gay and straight, at a local club tournament or something?

You will find that openly gay players are isolated in normal clubs, so these gay tournaments provide a good way to socialize for them.

Well surely people talk about other things than their sex lives. I don't see why the gay players can't mingle with the straight players in normal clubs :shrug:

Not everyone is that open-minded ;) There are people out there that detest homosexuality, so that is too big a hurdle for many gay players. Of course, there are probably many more occasions on which there are no problems between gay and other players.

Yes but I mean, why do they have to talk about sexual preferences :shrug: They could talk about what they had for dinner last night or the amazing match between Federer and Agassi the night before :o

If someone wants to enter how do they know if they're gay? Do they make them pass the gay test i.e making out with someone from the squad? :o
