Re: Do Pro Players still participate at their local club?

Not at all a big player but I know Reamon Sluiter sometimes trains at the tenniscourts around the corner from my house, though his hometown (and local club) is 15 miles from here.
I guess when players visit home they'll occasionaly train at their own club...

Thats good to hear, I suppose thats what happened with the Dean Machine, he must have only dropped in for a couple of practices before heading back on tour. I haven't seen him down at my courts for a reasonable time now. i should have taken the oppertunity of him being there to ask for some tips on how to make my game more like his. Hopefully one day that chance will come again. Fingers crossed.

I've only seen him twice to be honest training at QLD academy. The most recent was 2005 when he acted as a coach and did drills with us for about an hour. He's quite a friendly guy, but he can be quite a prick who doesn't watch what he says when he's in bad mood. The training courts we use here are Rebound Ace as well and he always complains about it and tried to brainwash us by saying how crap it is in tournaments. Now, happy for him, they're gone.

I've only seen him twice to be honest training at QLD academy. He's very typical aussie so generally says alot of "come ons" yeh lol but not as dramatic as he does it like real tournaments. We tell him to act it out though on purpose and it's quite funny. The most recent was 2005 when he acted as a coach and did drills with us for about an hour. He's quite a friendly guy, but he can be quite a prick who doesn't watch what he says when he's in bad mood.

Man that's cheaper than most hoes I know. Of course, these are classy b*tches and Draper's pretty much a retired journeyman so I guess it's normal.

Think so yeah, pretty sure he won a title a while back.

EDIT : taken from wikipedia - ``Draper also plays golf professionally, putting him in that rarest category of athlete who has managed to play more than one professional sport. On February 11, 2007, Scott won the New South Wales PGA Championship on the Von Nida Tour, giving him his first professional golf title.``
