1-4

Having too much on my mind, I played poorly: 2-6, 4-6, 0-6, 6-1 in a doubles game.

I picked up my racket for restrung, $32.58. Don’t know what kind of string and don’t know the tension. The only choice I made was between white or black color of string. I chose white. End of report, lol.

Monday, I hit for an hour with the blue racket. It felt heavy, than the reddish one.

Broken string 断弦


Another one hour hard hitting session, and my string was broken. Unlike many players, my string lasts forever. Some players like to have their racket restrung annually. I always re-string when it busted.

One hour of hitting


The little girl is 7 years old. Apparently, she was there since 7 o’clock in the morning.

Keeping up an intense hour of hard hitting with a 50 years old opponent, is exhilarating yet taxing. Coming out of the club, seeing a sunny, windless 43° day is another joy of this Monday.

4-6 and 5 sets pickle ball


We did a slightly better tennis than last time. Five sets of pickle ball 4-1.

A lady who’s regular at the pickle ball game played a set of tennis. She hardly knows how to play …

oh the coach …


A hard hitting morning, what a way to start the week! Two courts, two sets of singles, 8-9.

J said one of the coaches at the club has covid-19. Hope all is well with the coach and a speedy recovery.

0-6, 2-6, 1-6

Three big nuts plus this little nut, played outdoor tennis, under 37° and 10 mph wind weather. It was pretty brutal but we managed. AND we weren’t alone.

几乎全军覆灭
露天娃们嫌俺不够根红苗正
室内娃们嫌俺黑 … 正在琢磨要不然去融资购买雪花膏?
Look we’re not the only nuts … 🧺 还有人在野餐 … 昏菜

It’s only eight minutes apart,

I haven’t been to Christopher Morley Park for tennis for a few years.

It still looks the same. $40 per court per hour 7-9pm on a Friday night. One of the opponents was dragging her time … no one likes to lose but come on…

Indoor tennis

Finally, I moved indoor. $30 a month membership fee.

I haven’t played at this location for a few years. This time around, during the covid-19 pandemic, tables and chairs are gone, leaving the hall wide open. Laughs and chatters used to fill the space, now empty.

The courts are mostly filled. the condition is ok but lighting is bit poor.
