Anyone for tennis?

Hi,

I am looking for someone to play tennis against.

I am not particlauly great, but will hopefully improve over the season. Its been several years since I played so very rusty, but want to get back into it again.

I can play pretty much any evening from 5pm on wards.

Where: Frauentalweg, Zurich, 8045. End station of Tram 13, Albisgutli.

Please get back to me if you are interested.

Thanks

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Good to hear that you're interested in playing on regular basis. There are some forum memebrs who gather regularly in Mythenquai or Schlieren weather permitting. You could try one of these social events and judge by yourself if the level is adequate to your skills. I am sure that you can find a relevant partner matching your level.

I live close to Baden and this season training sessions for our first league are already very time-consuming in my club leaving me with little or next to none flexibility in terms of similar social meetups.

Also try to browse on the EF as there should be some information about joining clubs and finding tennis partners.

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hey there,

I'd be interested in tennis. I'm not great myself - could do with a bit of practice and just love the sport. I work near Albisgütli - so evenings are great. I can make most evenings except Thursdays.

PM if interested.

Cheers,
Elaine

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hi Big Lad
I'd be interested in playing tennis in Frauental since it's really close to my place of work. Could you drop me a line at [Private Message me]? Perhaps you can provide a number you can be contacted at so we could organize a game on a sunny day.

Here's looking forward to a note from your end.

Best regards
Consie

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hello Everybody,

I am new in Zürich (28y) and I would love to find a tennis partner for regular practice. I will soon be checking out the TC UBS and if one of you is interested in playing (wherever it is in the Zürich area), I would be more than happy to join. I am available Monday-Friday starting at 6 pm. and on the weekends. I practiced some years ago but I will definitely involve myself to get back at some decent level. Please do not hesitate to PM me !

Will

Re: Anyone for tennis?

It would be great if everyone who's interested in finding tennis partners could quote their skill level, e.g. according to this system.

I'm a 34 year old male from Sweden looking for a tennis partner. I suspect my level is around 4.0, but I've never been assessed by anyone. I got coaching when I was a teenager, but as an adult I've just played with friends every now and then.

So I guess I should be in the 3.5 - 4.0 range but just a rough guess (no official assessment)

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hi Everyone,

Would also really like to find a tennis partner. 27yo Australian, I would say i am a beginner but i'm catching up fast. Probably a 3 or 3.5 on the scale you guys are using.

I live near Stauffacher but would be happy to travel around Zurich to meet up and play. I can play from 6pm onwards.

Im new to the forum so I am not exactly sure how you contact users directly but I will check the post often to see if anyone has replied.

Thanks!

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hello, are there people still interested in finding a tennis partner? I am about a 3.5, I think.
I can make it to Frauentalweg or Mythenquai from 6.30/7pm during the week and I am open to playing on Saturdays or Sunday afternoon/evening also.

Cheers,

Lucio

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hi EF

I would like a game of Tennis at some point over summer. I live in Zurich and work in Wollishofen. It has been a while since I have played so I am looking for people who are also a little rusty but who are at an OK level.

Cheers Rob

Re: Anyone for tennis?

Hi,

I'm available to play tennis during the weekends. I was quite a good player when I was 17 yo ... maybe now I'm a bit rusty but probably I can be in shape after after 2-3 sessions ... I live in Küsnacht (ZH) but I'm there only for the week-end. During the week I work in Lausanne ... obviously if you are around Lausanne during the week and willing to play just let me know.

Drop me a line if you are interested.

Max

According to the USTA ranking I should be around 6.0 ... probably a rusty 6.0
