Tennis, anyone?


I played tennis in Oakland when I was a kid in the 1980s and then I stopped.  This past April I took it up again and it is a really fun, really frustrating sport.  This Fall I have signed up to be on several different teams because I’m assuming I’m not going to be rostered for every match on every team, especially since I’m new.  I am currently playing at Oakland Hills Tennis Club, the same place I played when I was a kid.  It’s a beautiful club (although the bathrooms are a little bit outdated) with a breathtaking view of the Bay.  It’s a family owned and operated club that doesn’t do a lot of advertising with mostly long term members so I feel like it’s one of Oakland’s best kept secrets.  They have a new pro this year, Kathy Toon, who is coming in with new enthusiasm.
