Re: How often do you play tennis?

I don't play nearly as much as I'd like to. I really wish I had more friends down here to play with.

Re: How often do you play tennis?

I play about 4-5 times a week. Minimum 1hour.
I play serve and volley. It used to be very effective but these days, I'm finding it harder and harder...

Re: How often do you play tennis?

In summer, I try to play everyday if there is good weather.

Here in NY, decent tennis weather ranges from May-October. So I have to play Indoors for most of the year, about once a week.

Everyday, but Sunday. ...and the occasional recovery day (usually about 2-3 a month.)

Whatever... FOREVER.

Re: How often do you play tennis?

I went from hitting three times a week and playing competitions on weekends to hitting sporadically and not being able to field a team to play on weekends. The level of interest in tennis has really dropped off where i am from (Perth, Western Australia). Tennis clubs are struggling with membership numbers. My club in particular used to have up to 300 members, but is now at an all-time low of 96. It used to be the most popular club in the city. Nowadays, i can't even find a hitting partner who can stay injury-free for more than a few weeks. I've been through about 10 hitting partners in four years who have all either quit playing tennis or are recovering from injury while in that whole time, I've maybe only had one or two niggling injuries, but have been mostly injury-free. Maybe they just don't like hitting with me. I don't know. It's just too much of a coincidence that everyone is injured.

Re: How often do you play tennis?

Not often enough.
By the way adidas dude,
They are not injured. They don't want to play you, especially if you have beaten them.
Its a nasty plight on our lovely game that alot of people have the attitudes that they have. It really is their loss but like you i have a lack of hitting partners as well because of this attitude.

Re: How often do you play tennis?

^ If I went to that club, Adidas dude, I would hit with you, albeit I'm not that good though. Anyways, I play around 4-5 times a week for about an hour or 2 at this park near my house.

Re: How often do you play tennis?

Tennis training 3 hours three times a week, cross train the other three and on Sunday play a couple of games with guys to become match-tough (I'm a girl). Of course, it's very hard to win against them (Class A men) but when I do it's very very satisfying. And it makes it easier to play matches with other women.

Hey that's awesome! Keep up the good work!

I don't play as much as I'd like to, but I do play everyday for about two hours except on weekends, then do footwork and a workout. I play for my college so I get to have time set aside, which is very nice.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.

Vamos Rafa!
