How was the first session? What level of players showed up there? any feeback on the courts?

There were about 15 players last Thursday. 2 were advanced, 6 were intermediate, 4 were beginners, and 3 have never played before. Courts were brand new with locker & shower available. The most complaints were the lighting seemed a little too bright but we can adjust it by dimming them the next time. Hope to see this week.

I've been playing off & on for almost 20 years now but I'd say I'm just an intermediate player. I don't like to compete in tournament. Win or lose is not that important to me, I just like to play for fun and get a good workout from it. I'd always tell people, it's better to lose and get a good workout than to win and get no workout. So if I'm playing against weaker opponent, rather than beating the hell out of them and win by 10 pts and get no workout, I usually hit it right back to them and I'd try to defend their smashes so that I'll get more workout from it and they don't lose so badly. Thanks for asking.

The meetup site saysnthe time starts at 6pm, not 630pm, can you verify which is correct?

The start time has been moved up to 6 pm so that you all can get a bit more playing time for your money. And not to worry, we had about 15 people last time. Not everyone who came belongs to MeetUp so there should definitely be more than 4 people there tomorrow. Plenty of free parking on the cross street, Eldridge Avenue, right in front of the gym. See you tomorrow!
