How about a forum for people who play tennis, or want to?

I was thinking earlier this week that I wouldnt mind trying to find a tennis partner to play regularly with, as my friends either live in the different city (I'm currently at Uni) or arn't interested in tennis at all. I joined a tennis club, but I only go to the club night.

So I tried finding a site that you could search for people who also wanted to play.. but i only found this US one which you had to pay for and was in the US anyway.

And plus, would it be a good idea to have a forum where people can discuss thier game etc rather than in GM?

Just a thought

Re: How about a forum for people who play tennis, or want to?

Great idea!!!!!!!! I'm definitely for it!!!

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I think there is such a forum on mtf, where amateurs and pro-wannabes (no offense ) post, so I'm all for that idea, even though I hardly qualify to any of the above groups.

No.

I think, normally people posting in this forum don't live close to each other, at least not close enough to get together to play tennis...

But yeah, you never know

I don't know, if people only want to travel close to home I guess you are right. But if I could play (I am yet to start, but ok) somewhere in Belgium and Germany I would consider it too, and make a nice day trip out of it.

You are going to have to teach me then, cause I have not played before, apart from a little hitting with my sister and brother in law a few years back.
