Choosing "Yes" means that you are able to play the basic shots and to play proper matches (and that you HAVE played some). It doesn't matter how good or bad you are or that you are currently not playing because of having no time or being injured/lazy/sick of it/ etc.

Choosing "No" either means that you have never stepped onto a tennis court, or that you have only tried hitting some shots a few times, or that you have had some lessons but didn't go further.

I play a lot of tennis and I'm competitive in Nova Scotian provincial events and I'm pretty successful winning a couple titles this year.

I LURVE playing tennis...I love the competitiveness it stirs up in me. I had been watching tennis for quite awhile and I always wanted to play (I had convinced myself that I couldn't). I got a racquet for Xmas 4 years ago and I went out and just started playing anyone on the public courts(who would) and taught myself that way. I was getting really good and I started to conceal the fact that I was a beginner. I hit against a board to practice my strokes and I would then go and play others. I watched tennis obsessively so I was learning that way too...I then took some clinics and found a real serve...lol

I would play all the time if I could!!!! I just got some lazy ass friends :tape:

Tennis is definitely my sport. I practice very hard with my coach and my goal is to make the varsity team of my highschool next year (our tennis is too competitive :p). I want to play tennis in college and want to play some satellites in a few years also.

Three times a week. I spend one night in a group lesson, one night in a private lesson and one day playing matches. Wish I started when I was a lot younger though :sad: I'm not that bad, and I'm left handed, so it throws a lot of people off.

[email protected] claiming she'd beat Anna Pistolesi! :lol:
You underestimate the level of the tour sooo much.
She's been as high as #14 you know.
She hits harder than you expect and she would get every single one of your shots back. :rolleyes:

I play...and I'm pretty good, I think. I have been playing almost every day.

I play with at a club. We only have 1 tournament there every year...and it's later this month. If I'm not playing a club member, I play my brothers.

My weapon are my return of serve and forehand. My weakness is my backhand.
