Amanda can we have a subforum in General for the people on this board who actually play tennis? It can be a place where they can discuss tips, health, equipment, tournaments, and such. We had two racquet purchasing questions in GM just today, and there are a number of people on this board who play, including some on the Futures circuit, so I think it would prove to be a popular place (although not nearly as popular as the gambling forum). Thanks! :D

Great idea Fee. I wanted some information about strings, tension, available tennis accessories and so on, but did not know where to post.

So, yeah, by all means, let's have this forum.

I agree there is another tennis forum I visit and they have a forum for tennis tips and one for tennis health, but its ok if we combine it into one. They also have a separate forum for equipment but its ok if that is combined into the tennis tips forum as well.

I would be really handy for any of us looking for tips when buying a new racket or for help in improving our game

I think David Ferrer needs his own player forum.

He's doing really well, and he's part of the Spanish Armada too :-)

Gravity? Can you help us out...or are new forums out-of-the-question these days?

We could possibly place this in the Misc. section. I'm not sure cluttering General Messages with subforums is a good idea.

Angle Queen
06-01-2005, 06:19 PM
Somewhere, anywhere. Beggars can't be picky!!! :)

(although I suspect if it's too buried, newer folks will still try to post such questions in GM. Guess it'll be up to us to politely point them in the correct direction.)

yes, it would be cool to have such a section for people who always ask technique questions about their strokes, about the right equipment with rackets, strings.. the right strategy.

I think it could be a success :)

I am not a player at all, but I think it's a great idea to have a separate Forum where the many tennis players here could get together and discuss things that people like me just wouldn't understand..............!!

Yeah, now that I've actually crossed the line from fan to starting to learn to play, I really wish there was a place to go here for that. Also, new posters seem to see a need for it too... recently there was a brandnew poster who quickly started 3 threads in GM about strings, racquets and joining the USTA... took up room in GM but would have been perfectly suited for a players section.

Definitely, there's enough requests for help as it is. Besides, it can give a lot of us more room to talk the dirty aspects of playing the game.

Guys, I like the idea and supported it myself in the history of this thread, but Jazz or me can't give you a forum. This needs more than super moderators and it can only be decided and installed by the higher instances ;)

In German language there is a saying that probably translates best into "The mills of justice grind slowly". And this applies to the mills of MTF, especially regarding forum requests, sometimes too ;)

athie
01-04-2006, 09:29 AM
Well this additional section on MTF has my full support – I didn’t use the word ‘potential’ because once we all begin making ‘demands’ this section will be created :D
Quite frankly my heart sometimes sinks when I see serious related tennis threads on GM – they just get lost in all the spam.

I didn't do it... I asked the admins as mod and it just appeared one day. Perhaps it's easier to create a subforum than a whole new forum, I don't know. There are a lot of popular forum requests here that haven't been answered :(
