Hi folks !

Anyone fancy a game of Tennis nearby ( Tanner St / Kennington Park ) ?

I reckon I'm at intermediate level but playing for FUN is more my aim

Let me know if you're interested !

Hitesh! long time no post!
(you're the same Hitesh right? from MCH?)

I'd be up for some tennis action - intermediate is about where I'd put myself, or maybe a bit lower.

There are also courts in Burgess Park, at the Camberwell Rd end, and in Southwark Park, on the west side, just north of road going through park.

I think they're all free. I've played at Tanner st, and it was sit and wait for a free court, Southwark Park was the same, and we played at Archbishops park once, but we had to book a court (but it was free).

are you thinking weekday evening, or weekend?

I'm really interested as I need to start doing more exercise again.

Who won?!

How long was the wait for a court at 8am on a Sat morning?

Hey Juanita - Good to hear from you !

Wouldya-bleevit... not a soul on the courts when we got there at 8:00 ?!

I think it would be fair to say that both of us were blowing the dust off our long dormant racquets and were a little rusty.

...I was slightly less rusty than JonR ; )

Inspired you to dust off yours ?

Kind Regards, Hitesh

I think that If Hitesh is Intermediate than I'm still only learning - he beat me convincingly, although I did break serve once, and held my own serve at least once, I think the final score was 6-1, 6-2.

First thing Saturday morning is definitely the time to go, but unfortunately I'll be away this coming weekend, so if anyone else wants to play, please reply.

I think we could quite easily make it a regular thing.
we played till about 9:15, then had tea and bacon sandwiches in Al's cafe.

splendid way to start the weekend, although I'm once again at work Monday morning feeling absolutely shattered

early weekday mornings? we'd have to be keen for that! - Saturday first thing is good for me again. 8am?
Tuesday 5 August 2008 5.36pm
This Sat 8am Tanner St? Go on then ...I'll be there but I reckon I will get whupped by even JonR!
