    Anybody interested in playing some singles. I was rated a 3.0/3.5 - somewhere in between. If you're interested - ping me. We could play early morning or evening.

    Just to keep the post fresh, wouldn't mind playing indoors too as we head into the winter. I am member at the ASVP so I should be able to get a court.

    If anybody is interested in playing Sundays with a rating of 3.0/3.5/4.0 - please reply. I have a group of folks who are part of a chain of emails and we get together now and then to set up a doubles. The chain is heavy on the ladies but we could use some more men...

    Anybody interested in playing - please email me.

    Hello -- I have absolutely NO experience with Tennis but am interested in learning the game. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in teaching for about an hour once a week? Or, if you can recommend a class for beginners, that would be great, too. So far, I have found a class with Fairfax County Parks & Rec that starts in September, but I'd like to get started sooner. Let me know! ang_wvu1@hotmail.com

    What are the options for tennis groups in the Broadlands. I'd like to get involved if there is a group that plays regularly, and looking for more players.

    I have a group of guys I play with - we're all about a 3.0 - 3.5. We have not set up a regular time yet but we are all interested in doing so if we could find enough people to fill in.

    What's your skill level?

    I like to play!
    Don't know what the skill levels are, but I call myself an advanced beginner.
    What I lack in skill I make up in a long reach!

    By the way, how do you determine your skill level? I assume this is set through tournament play, like a golf handicap?

    To get rated - contact any local tennis facility. They can unofficially rate you or tell you when somebody certified is in the facility to rate.

    I am also interested in playing singles tennis this spring/summer and would be interested in joining a group that plays evenings/weekends.

    Mike, do you know your rating? Sorry to be such a tennis snob (trust me - 3.0 is not great) - but, it won't be that enjoyable for anybody if you're not at least near the same level. Tiger and Cliff - I would probably suggest the 2 of you hook up for some singles - seems like you both may be around the same level.

    I do not have a rating. What I can say is I'm a 28year old male that enjoys multiple sports- baseball and basketball are probably my best sports. With that said, I'd rate myself as an intermediate tennis player. I'm hoping to play consistently this spring/summer. I definitely don't want to waste anyone else's time, but I'd love to get out and play. I don't mind going through Tennis Dan to get a rating if that's the best way to get involved.
