I played in high school...um, 20+ years ago, then gave it up temporarily for racquetball. Picked it back up 4 years ago and have been at it ever since. Peaked last Spring...playing 5 days a week (with lessons, team practices and USTA league matches). Would love to be at that level now...but certain things have conspired to keep me off the courts at the moment. Maybe this fall...*sigh*.

I've played seriously for over 15 years. Tried to play when I was a kid, but that was in the era of wood racquets, and being very petite I didn't have the strenght to hit the ball over the net with a woodie. Then it wasn't until I was well out of college and married that I took it up again. Play in two contracts a week-strictly dubs now (total 3 hours) and sub in a few contracts too. I'm a 3.5 and not going to get any better. Just too old to have any desire to improve.

I started playing in June 2004. I just take lessons with a USPTA instructor and she's organized a doubles round robin that I've participated in since last spring.

I started playing 15-20 years ago. I absolutely love this game, but the last 5 years or so I've been injury plagued like my name was Marcelo, so I've more or less given up ever getting really good at this.

Default Re: How long have YOU played?

Ehm, slightly embaressed to admit this, but...I hardly ever play. I have a serious case of asthma, plus I have hayfever, so any kind of serious tennis would do me in. XD Frankly, unless I can do it fully I'd rather not do it. I'm too competitive.

Just under 15 years, but never competitively.

I have always been completely uncoordinated at every sport and activity. I even injure myself walking around the house. Somehow I play tennis reasonably well, though. So I had to keep up my skill in the one activity I could do right.

Default Re: How long have YOU played?

I have played for just two semesters. I always liked watching the sport but growing up and in high school I was involved in too many other activities to really start up. So now in college I have some phys. ed. credits to spare my senior year and I took tennis in the fall semester and in the spring semster. So it hasn't even been one year yet I really enjoy it though so I hope to keep doing it after graduation.

I started when I was kid and love it. I was playing pretty regularly until I fractured both ankles, and I haven't played much since. I'm really not a klutz -- HA--I've never fractured anything before or since!! I want to get back to playing more this summer.
