Getting back to the game

I'm 16 years old now, and I started ice hockey and tennis at age 10. At 13, I dropped tennis and began playing hockey full time. I still watch tennis and enjoy it till this day, and I would like to get back into playing it casually about two times a week. My cousin is a very good player, and I've forced him to play with me(he still thinks it's a waste of time to play with me ). Back when I played, my forehand was hands down my best shot by a mile. My backhand was decent, and my serve had good power but poor accuracy. My foot work and endurance is already good because of hockey, but making it better wouldn't hurt. Are their any threads/articles/books that I can read to help improve my game. If you guys have any other tips, I'd be glad to hear them. Thanks.

Re: Getting back to the game

I love playing tennis and fantasy football, but fantasy football season is over. I find myself with lots of time on my hands. What can members recommend for a game to play against others each day that requires skills and luck with some kind of championship?

Hey sp0rtsnutone. I would suggest you get a social life lol, but to answer your question, why don’t you try gameon247. Just google the name and their site should come up. Its gaming website filled with casino styled games like Blackjack. They also have daily tournaments every 15 mins, if that’s what you meant by championships and you can see how you stack up against other players with their leader boards so I’m sure the competition is intense. Try your luck and test your skills. Good luck!

Re: Getting back to the game

I’d have to second what fantasy2011fan said. Gameon247 has the best free online tournament I’ve ever played. I always play Blackjack there everyday and I must say it’s very fun and competitive. How can it not be fun to win against other people . If you do end up playing at gameon247 be sure to look for me, Matthew. I’ll give you a good schooling lol.

Re: Getting back to the game

fuzzyyellowballs.com have a red flag security warning for malware distribution. I would love to visit it, but I can't afford another malware to hit my computer again. Is there a way to tell the owners of the site of this and to take action ?
