Re: How frequently do you practice?

During my tennis season at school, I play 5-6 days a week but it always seems that by the end of the season I somehow get injured or have some big projects to do at school or something and my time on court diminishes quickly. Now that I am over my injury I'm trying to practice about 4 times a week at least

Only in my dreams.

In (USTA League) season, practice once a week, competition play once a week (from early April to mid-June if we make it to our City tourney, mid-July if we make it to our State tourney...which we did last year. )

Out of season, if the weather's nice...and I can score a match on a public court...maybe two or three times a week. But that's play rather than practice. I'm lucky to see the court two or three times a month during the winter...and that's for a pro-lead/coached practice (1.5 hours @).

Sigh. It's never enough.

I love my girls.

Re: How frequently do you practice?

Not often enough- in my better days I would usually play around 3-4 days and also hit the gym every other day I wasn't playing.

I have just gotten over a really annoying flu and I have my semestrial exams now so I hope to get back into full gear very soon.
