Dulcinea's Insight

  • As we've already mentioned, the USTA's site is a must-bookmark find, even if you're not actually a member of the organization. To use its program and partner finder you need only join their Web site, which is free.
  • Browse around other tennis sites you like, even bigger publications like ESPN.com, and you will often find a "Forums" section specifically catered to tennis and other sports that may interest you.
  • Be sure to check out social bookmarking sites like Delicious and search terms like "tennis forums" to see what your Web-surfing peers have discovered in the same vein. This can often pull up more interesting sites than a normal search engine would.
  • As always with online forums, there are occasionally users who use offensive language, and advice from other forum users should always be checked against professionals, especially in the case of medical concerns.
