Well it doesn't matter if you're good or not, I just need to learn pronation + body rotation. If you can help with those, you're good enough :P
So to everyone who might read this: I just need someone who can teach me body rotation + forearm rotation

There are tons training videos on youtube you can learn from them, or hire a coach :-)

I don't want a coach, I want someone to help me for an hour or two so I can get the basics of pronation and body rotation... One guy wanted 80$ for one hour... I checked a bunch of videos, I'm getting the hang of pronation but I just can't get body rotation yet.

Unless they're good friend of yours, I doubt anyone will really want to teach you technique just like that for free, they've got other things to do ;-)
As someone stated before, Centre Claude-Robillard has the best players I've seen in Montreal so far, many C to A players, and I've seen an elite or two there before. Maybe you can start by showing up there and looking at them play...

OOOOOOH then you guys might bew able to answer my questions... How many players are at claude robillard? I keep hearing theres so many people that you end up playing 5 minutes and then rotation so you play on and off for 5 minutes each time... Is this true? Can I get a solid 1 hour straight of playing with 3 of my buddies there? Whats up for pricing as well? Different people say different things...
You might be seeing me there some tuesdays :P

There is a rotation system.
If you play singles (1 against 1), it's 10 min.
If you play doubles (2 against 2), it's 20 min.
Please call Centre Claude Robillard telephone for exact informations : (514) 872-6900

As for the amount of time you can play, sometimes there's not that many people and as soon as you finish rotation (20 minutes when playing double) you can find another court right away, so you can pretty much play non stop. But some other times it's true there's many people, and after playing 20 minutes, you have to wait 20-30 minutes to play again. It doesn't happen a lot, but it happens. In my experience, there's less people on thursdays than tuesdays. Also, please note that under 18 years olds are not allowed to play there after 19h00, so usually the crowd is younger before 19h00...
