We are a mixed group of players that play each weekend in the centre of town. We play generally on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning for two hours.

We are probably a little better than average, meaning we can serve reasonably, hit a volley and even a backhand and forehand without throwing it 30 meters in the air.

The cost for a two hour session in winter is 800 or 900 roubles.

Anyone interested in trying it out and putting his name on the list, please send me a message.

See you on the court.

Hiya

It's been a while since I've played, so I have what might seem like a strange request. If you manage to get 4 people together I'd love to come along for a game or a few, but I'd feel happier if you had someone good to play against in case I'm too rubbish for you!
I can also serve reasonably, play a rally, fore-back, etc but like I say, it's been about 3 months since I've played.

Reckon that would be possible? Just don't want to ruin your game if I'm not up to your standard!

I would like to join in.

Had not played for quite some time and started 2 weeks back. The level at this stage is starters but can hold my game in case of doubles and give it a fight.

Lemme know.

Bob, should this fall through I'd be up for a game with you. Sounds like you're about the same level as me...

Is the pivo and vodka provided on-court? What about profanity? Is it at least tolerated? Or are you guys a 'proper' tennis crowd? Mind you I'll only play multinational...Canadians, Indians, Kiwis, Dutch, Francos, Russkyies, Belorus...I like to mix it up...

If it's mixed doubles then I'm in. Played with quite a few men, singles and doubles. Haven't played since June (tennis elbow). No unintentional 30 meters ball from me...just looking for a solid but fun game. Can you send me time and place, and is it necessary to reserve in advance?

Hi, not sure my level would be up to your expectations, but I'd love to give it a try. Some background: I used to be rather good, but I haven't played for quite many years (with the exception of my vacation last week during which I played every day). Please let me know when and where unless you already have all the plyers you need. Thanks.

i want to find some people to play tennis with too. I am new to Moscow and don't know the city so well, so, i don't know where to play.

My level is decent.

Serve well enough, albeit a little too straight and without enough punch.
Backhand is decent, forehand is trusty. Volleying is poor, but this is 2010 and baseline is the way, so it's ok.

How does it work?

Do i post here and somebody contacts me or should i contact you?

Who wants to play?

What do you say?

Hi!

I fancy so much this sport! Where about is this place where you meet to play it? I don't have rackets, is it possible to get it in that place?
Please, let me know more about your meetings!

Hello. I'm really keen to start playing tennis. I'm relatively fit but don't have loads of tennis experience, but I'm eager to take up a new sport.

Hello people!
New to this forum, but it looked like a pretty active tennis community, and as I have recently moved to central Moscow....
It seems that you are by and large above my current level (I stopped for about 7 years, but played in a club for 8 years before). Any chance of people interested in getting back up to speed and sharing a fun, (competitive spirit still there, mind;)) game?
If there is a chance of entering into a game next w-e, I'd love it, so please do send some details this way, if possible...
Thanks, and have fun for today's games...
Damien
