Are you a player or a non-player?

I was wondering how many posters on this board actually play tennis themselves. You may add some comments like your current, local ranking, beginner/advanced player or you are in another way related to the game... (trainer, coach, umpire, maintenance worker , 'après'-tennis specialist , ... )
Non-players definitely have to answer why they DON'T play this fine game.

I play tennis and my ranking is currently C30-4. That is almost the lowest ranking you can get in Belgium but I must add I was a better player two years ago, being a C30 and right now Im working on a come back defeating all players in my category. That should be no difficult since I have more than 20 years of experience in my pocket (yesyes I know, Im a dinosaur) and Im mostly up against beginners or youngsters who are wrestling with a hangover, afflicted to themselves the night before...

I'm not a player because I live the middle of bloody no where, and the only sports areas are about 7 cricket grounds ... which you can't play tennis on (I've tried ) I play at school at lunch time, but it takes time to get home afterwards, so I can't play after school.

So I watch it on TV, and give professionals tips on what they should do

Messed around and played a little in the street when I was a kid. Now I've joined USTA League tennis and we start in about 2 weeks. I'm only a 2.5 but have improved since I started a few months ago.

I'm surprised no one has already done this poll.

I've played for 13 years, since I was 9 years old.
(Oh, just gave away my age.....hehehehe.....22 was it....hehehe )

The best, and only sport I'll probably ever play competitively.

ive played heaps of sports on and off competitively inc. tennis, soccer, basketball and more..
so never really 'specialised' to become good in any in particular like 'AURA' would be ,with 13 years !

but tennis is definately my fave even if i can't play too well these days

I just started taking tennis lessons. In high school I did other sports, at Uni, I simply didn't have time to do sports. Now's the first year I have time to do more sports, tennis seemed an obvious choice.

I play recretional tennis regularly, at least once a week.
I started play tennis 5 years ago, but only the last 3 years that I start to play regularly.

This is the best sport IMO

I´m playing tennis since Im 7. I played some junior tournies in Austria and was sometimes around the top 40 in Austrian junior ranking but than I started skiing and both was too expensive
Now Im 19 and I think it would be too late to start again
I once played Jurgen Melzer anyone know? He was junior winner at wimbledon 3 years ago, but lost 06 36

I play tennis at the RTC Ath in Belgium. I like it very much, I'm NC (I've got no ranking) but I'm gonna make my entry on the tour (not the professional one, but the regional ) in the summer so I hope I'll have some good results!!!
