Playing singles makes me feel like I'm playing the tennis I see on the tv (albeit at a slightly different level). I love having the space on the court to work out the points- and you get more chance to hit winners. And for sure much more exercise. We haven't a lot of lady members but have a friend at the club who also wants to play more singles so here's hoping for some dry weekends thru the winter (we don't have floodlights).
You play during the winter??  That's very brave. lol  Mind you there's a tennis club close to the dental practice I go to, and I have seen members playing then - suitably dressed for the weather of course.

I play every week, I went on a five match losing streak and today I won 6-2 6-4. So I am 1/5 for the season.

Well we are full of good intentions but it does depend on it being dry on a sunday and folk being free to play - it's not a good idea to plan your weekend around playing on a sunday in winter, it invariably rains . But we do try and wrap up and play a bit. Fingers crossed for some dry weather,hate the idea that that's it til march.

I play all year round also, as long as its dry and not too windy its fine, you are well wrapped up at the start but 5 mins after you start your warmed up anyway. We are lucky that at queens park we have floodlights so we can play midweek nights also. If its really bad weather we just book indoors at scotstoun or gorbals although that's a last resort as it 17 quid for a court whearas at queens park its totally free.

I can't play outside, I have a heavy topspin forehand that I can hit extremely flat too and when I play outside the conditions make the ball heavier, so instead of me being in control with topspin, I make 20x more errors because the ball springs of my strings much more, so I can lose control of my groundstrokes too.

Hmm - I have many memories of being half-frozen on a tennis court in April and May in this lovely warm country of ours, because clubs (and my school) insisted we wear tennis dresses or skirts and a short-sleeved top regardless of the weather. Rolling Eyes

Gangsta do you always play indoors!!!!! Half the laughs we have are battling the scottish elements. One of my fav matches this year was an away match where we played in gale force winds, heavy showers and finished under floodlights. T'was just like playing the 2012 US Open.

Ooh god no! I wouldn't mind playing like her but wouldn't wanna look like her. Far too bulky.

No rules about what we wear at our club other than not wearing footwear that might damage the courts so we have been seen in many layers - including gloves - to help us play in all weathers.
