(Photo above L-R) Karen See and Vipul from India played last Tuesday afternoon, April 5, 2005 at TennisNYC.com tennis league.  Karen paid $40 for almost 2 hours of tennis drills, hitting and supervised game/match play at a private court in Koko Lani's [League Director] Luxury Building in Edgewater.  I [Koko Lani] picked her up at the Ferry, toured her around the area and sat down for a nice cup of coffee at Panera in front of a fireplace.  "It was lovely, " Karen said smiling after she met new tennis friends. Karen said, "Few months ago, I went to a private tennis club in Manhattan and asked about joining a league.  They told me I have to pay $1,250 for membership, $250 for game evaluation, pay for court fees each time I play, so I left and didn't come back. I used to play in a league at Richmond Lawn Tennis Club in London and I only paid the equivalent of $200 for one year!"

CONGRATULATIONS, JANICE!

Lauren Kangas (photo left) works as an art designer for major companies.  She loves playing tennis and is very motivated to improve her game.  Sometime last year, she joined a tennis club, paid a ton of money and didn't have a very good experience.  She said, "The club couldn't find me a partner. Then I was paired with an old lady whose game was very advanced and I was just starting to learn." Lauren did more than an hour of tennis drills and match/game situation with another member of the league, Janice Vrana at my building [Koko Lani] in Edgewater, last Thursday afternoon, March 31. "I want to do another tennis drill if you find someone," she asked smiling just before she took the 5 minute Ferry back to Manhattan.

Howie Hershkovich (photo above) played at the TennisNYC.com last Wednesday night, March 30, 2005.  He did an hour of intense tennis drills and hitting especially on the backhand side. "I like to work on my backhand," he said.  "I wish I saw your website few months ago, I would have joined the league much earlier," he added. "I sleep better when I get a good work-out!"  Howie is a successful businessman.  He owns an investment company, www.Tissafunding.com.  He has been playing tennis since he was a kid!
