February 16, 2011, 5:10 pm - (2 years ago) I decided to throw myself into tennis this year after playing sporadically with my friend over the years. I am really excited about league play and hope it will allow me to meet some great people, get some much-needed exercise, and improve my game!!
My friend made it to the post-season(though I'm not sure what that meant) in a 3.5 league last year and it looks like a lot of fun!! He always wins when we play but I usually manage to win 2 or three games per set so I am self-rating at 3.0.
My plan for the next few weeks is to work on cardio and fitness, try out a coach or two and get their rating recommendation, find a team on which to play, and hopefully eliminate some inconsistency in my serve and BH.
If you have any advice for a new usta player, I would love to hear it! This is a really cool forum and I have already learned a lot!!
Thanks and take care!!! Click here to read full article
