Re: How long have YOU played?

Played as a child and into high school (mostly recreational), played religiously from 1990 to 1996 (As if it was the gospel with league play, tournaments, etc)

Took a decade off from the sport (started surfing a ton and became a basketball junkie; my other loves) and then fell back into it last year with Agassi's run to the finals.

Now I'm back playing like a fool; becoming a certifed USPTA Coach this fall; for myself, for extra income and most importantly for my 6 year old (Who is way good).

In the past year of playing again, I am a much better player than I ever was. Smarter; more patient, more confident.

Re: How long have YOU played?

I play sometimes, decent forehand, average backhand- not too bad at the net but I like to play from the baseline. My local tennis courts are outdoor clay courts, but I prefer the indoor surfaces.

Played for about 3 years, as a hobby.

Re: How long have YOU played?

I put 1+ but I haven't played for a full year yet. The second Saturday of Wimbledon will be my first anniversary. I only really started watching Tennis last Spring and by the time Wimby rolled around I was hooked and decided to take a private lesson at my local club to see if it was something I could enjoy playing. I don't think I have ever loved something so much, I play at least 6 days a week. I'm not all that good right now (3.5) but I feel like I'm making big improvements month to month and it's not like I'm going to stop playing anytime soon.

It's abit weird to say, but I really feel like Tennis has been life changing for me. I never considered myself to be physically inclined, so I'd always avoided sports. It's hard to describe the difference being active and lighter (50lb) can make on a persons entire lifestyle and outlook.

Re: How long have YOU played?

i started playing junior year of high school to senior year, was on the team first as jv and then singles. i went to college and pretty much stopped except for the very seldom saturday swing. in my last year of college, i took a class and it was very much a process of relearning strokes and footwork while learning new things. that has continued until today, a year and a half later of figuring things out, making a million subtle adjustments and corrections to my technique,i feel like im playing good tennis for the first time.
