Do you actually play tennis?

I've been reading the forums for quite a few years (haven't posted much in the past though) but was always interested in how many of the posters here actually actively play the game. From a lot of the over-opinionated tripe that we have to endure on a regular basis you'd think the percentage would be quite high.

However I have a sneaky suspicion that there are a lot of "arm chair warriors" on here. Poll should help shed some light.

I try and play at least twice a week.

Re: Do you actually play tennis?

Twice a week if the weather doesn't screw me over.

There are quite a number of threads on this topic scattered throughout the forum.

Re: Do you actually play tennis?

I played tennis for 9 years (from 8 to 17 years old), with a personnal coach. But I had to stop at 17 because of my studies. Now I play from time to time, with friends and other.

Re: Do you actually play tennis?

once a week, with no skills, just for fun

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Do you actually play tennis?

I'm confused as to why this was moved from general messages... how is this post/poll non-tennis related??
