Seeking a High Level Hitting Partner for Hire [tennis]

I am a 49 year old player (Low R5/High R6 Level). I am seeking a hitting/training partner over the fall/winter who can train with me @ 1 or 2X each week. Playing partner should be ranked R4 or above and can be male or female and any age. Great part time work for a young player! I will pay for the court rental, balls, and everything and pay the partner CHF 50 / hour. I would prefer 2 hour sessions. I am seeking only a hitting partner and do not seek any advice on technique or instruction. Please contact me if you might be interested. I live in Zurich (Dubendorf). Thanks! Carl

Re: Seeking a High Level Hitting Partner for Hire

And all the teasing has started because a word tennis was missing from the context.

Re: Seeking a High Level Hitting Partner for Hire [tennis]

Hitting partner = tennis. It is a term used exclusively for tennis.
But that doesn't stop people from indulging in their favourite pastime, does it?

People like to joke here, but not everyone is up on the latest lingo for each sport. When I read the OP (ball and court) my first thought was squash, not tennis.

In order to keep everyone up to speed with what the OP has meant by ranking R5/R4 in the context of tennis hitting partner, here is the explanation by Swiss Tennis standards in DE:

@OP,

You're not with any tennis club already? You might find a partner there.

You would have had them lose by submission instead of hitting on you.

That’s always the best first place to call with likeminded individuals. However, when the spring/summer season is over, in autumn/winter one can keep on playing tournaments indoors on the carpet tennis courts and make new tennis contacts all the same.

You mean one would suscribe for high level hitting and then all you get is a hand-shake at the end of the game?

You are so correct.

My coach doesn't think so, though. I gotta hit him hard.

Well. His pads.

Re: Seeking a High Level Hitting Partner for Hire [tennis]

Using hitting term in tennis is somewhat misleading. Itís a ball game after all.
