That is the link to the pennant online results portal. You should be able to search clubs through that to see who has how many teams and what grades.
Grade 5, Section 3 if anyone happens to be in my grade this year. Had a long first match, ended up winning 2-6 7-6 6-3 in 2 1/2 hours. Bit sore today.
Should've been tagged in! Whip your asses jksBit above me, Grade 7, Section 4. Well Done on the win. Good long one to start off with.
Play for Langwarrin, Chris.
Liston tennis club is a great club right on the waterfront of williamstown. 6 courts, plenty of coaching and cardio tennis, etc.Im over in Melbourne soon for work for a couple of weeks - staying in Williamstown. Anyone know of any clubs around there which would offer drop-in, cardio or even coaching sessions?
How much did you pay for that racquet mate?Bump.
Anyone players out there keen for a chat about how their season is going, equipment, tips/advice?
Having a a pretty tough year in pennant. Won my first 5 or 6 singles matches of the year, and have lost the last 4. Doubles, the record is worse. Playing a lot of good juniors coming up into senior tennis. I enjoy playing them cos they give you a really good workout and its always competitive. Getting a bit frustrated with my team mates. They don't have a great work ethic and tend to give up really easy.
The season is annoying too. Massive break over the Christmas holidays, and every public holiday. Go for weeks on end without playing competitive tennis.
Have recently bought a cheap ball machine from gumtree, which Im finding is great for workouts and focusing on specific shots.
I play with a Head Graphene Extreme Pro. Love this racket, especially on groundstrokes.
Have been working hard on my serve the last couple of weeks, really focusing on getting racket drop and loosening up.
Playing style, I'm probably mostly a counter puncher. Just play the percentages, keep the ball in play and wait for a weak short ball rather than going for outright winners. At my level the person who wins is the one who makes the least unforced errors.
Ive got a tennis tutor pro. It goes alright. The flaps that hold the balls in are pretty flimsy and have broken, so have ordered new ones. I got it for a bargain off gumtree for $300.Any good? Been looking at getting one of these but they all seem so expensive
