Saturday 10:00 am Westview HS, level: 3.0 and up

This meetup is for 3.0 and higher players who want to play mixed doubles or singles.

If you want to come one hour (or so) earlier, just write about it in comments and most likely there will be someone who want the same thing and they will reply.

The routine is to play 5 games, no ads, and then winners play winners on the next adjacent court. The goal is to be on Court # 1 (Champion Court) or move towards it. Number the courts consecutively (#1, #, 2, etc.). After all courts have played their 5 games...winners move towards Court # 1 and non-winners move the opposite direction towards the last court.

Priority - hit and have fun!

Do not be shy talking about playing with brand new balls (if you really care about playing with brand new balls). Peter (organizer), and many others, always have brand new balls and will open up a new can for you (we split the costs). We can play with any balls that conform to USTA pressure, mass and rebound standard.

If you want to play singles, just mention it in comments of the event and when you come to the event. Usually there are people who will play singles with you.

    Was very warm! Weather forecast was for 38 degrees, but it was about 55 (or 65 ?) on courts! Feels like 65 degrees. August is back!

    All: It will have warmed up to 38 degrees by the time 10AM rolls around. If you're interested in a heated indoor court, THPRD has them available (I just called) at 11AM until 3PM. The cost for in district people is $16/hr. per court and for out of district it's $32/hour for the court. Split 4 ways, that's $4-$8/hr. If you're interested in doing this, please CALL me and we can talk. If we get this set up, I expect you to SHOW up! ;-) Keith [masked] To determine if you're in district: http://www.thprd.org/activities/residencyinfo.cfm The tennis center info. is here: http://www.thprd.org/facilities/hmttennis/home.cfm The address is: 15707 SW Walker Rd Beaverton, OR (at the corner of Walker Rd. and 158th Ave.)

    I forgot: the Westview courts have some very special "Inversion" weather effect: when it is Arctic Cold everywhere else in Portland, the Westview HS often has very warm weather. Very strange phenomena, but I wrote about it many times, in comments for past meetups: they are available to view. Often, I played without any shirt (naked) at Westview, but when I came back to Portland (SE), there was ICE lying on my driveway. But still, bring nice gloves (with thin palm side), warm hat, warm pants, warm coat, for perhaps warm-up period.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
