if they go easy on you for a little while you'll eventually get better.

no club near you?
I'v never had coaching, just joined my local club with a good friend of mine and we taught ourselves how to play, and I've played for a few years now and can usually hold my own in club matches.
Unfortunately that friend has gone away to uni so I don't really have anyone to play with anymore, besides my interclub matches I can only go to the senior club night where I am usually the youngest by at least 20 years.

Dont think they are exactly interested in playing with someone so inferior. I guess I'll get a racket and start hitting against a wall or something.

thats what you need! hitting against a wall is the best way to practice becaus the wall never misses.
