Just curious. It's my favorite form of exercise, and a great sport, but I know it's not very popular. Part of the problem is the cost...courts run $10/hour at a minimum and can be very hard to find. Add in $20 for safety glasses, $100 for a halfway decent racquet, $5 periodically for balls, and more $ for other associated crap (vibration dampeners, knee braces, sweatbands/headbands, elbow braces, etc...) and it adds up! But I've never found a sport that is so challenging and not boring! There is always someone new to play, some new shot to master. I play in an Intermediate league thru work, and consider myself about a "B" player. But there are a ton of "A" level and above players out there, so I've got a ways to go!
