    If you don't mind playing in small groups, or with old people (okay I don't know how old you are so I won't try to be offensive ;)), let's call them veterans, there are actually quite a few times and places to play (I can think of at least 10 sessions.)

    Check out: http://www.insports.com.au/bv/upload/venuesmelb.asp

    Missing off the top of my head there's Telstars, who play at Whitefriar's college Donvale, their social is on Friday nights (what the?) quite a wide variety of players, and friendly, if it wasn't on a Friday night I'd play there. Probably a couple more if I think about it.

    PS I saw you inquiring about Proaces and apacs stuff in Malaysia, you know you can buy that stuff here.

    down under in Aus, melbourne...where we have kanga
    yeah that place is real good!!! especially the friday ones.... though for a girl, it sucks cause all the girls there aren't very good (except one who's like a state player or something)...and girls unfortunately, usually have to play other girls cause the people dun encourage girls playing guys.... that sucks.

    Hi David,

    Do the above prices include both the string and labour, or just the strings? If we
    wanted your stringing service, how could we give you the rackets??
