Tip 1 – Player Profile
There are seven pages in your player profile that help you communicate who you are, what you play and how you like to play it. Make these pages work for you. Be clear about the sports you play and the level you play at. Remember that everybody is here for the same reason. We want to play. Some of us want to play a lot. If you are clear about who you are and what you expect, you will make it easier for people to friend you.
Tip 2 – Profile Photo
Players tell us that the most important thing in a player profile is the photo. They want to be able to look into the player’s eyes. They also want to get important clues from player photos about age and general fitness. Posting a closeup of your smiling face is the best way we know to connect with other players and start making friends.
Tip 3 – Joining Groups
Social Ladders and other groups are now at the center of Racquet Network. In early 2012, Racquet Network moved from our old website to the new CLUBHOUSE so that players could begin sorting themselves into groups. Every group with the words SOCIAL LADDER or COMPETITIVE + LEAGUE now has scorekeeping features.
Finding friends who play your sport in your city starts with joining groups. EXAMPLE: If you live in HOUSTON, type the word HOUSTON into the search box at the top right corner of the screen. Then change the dropdown menu to GROUPS and click SEARCH. This will create a list of groups for Houston. Pick groups that interest you and join them.
Racquet Network is here to help. Our staff are creating new groups every day. If we don’t have a group for your city/sport yet, please let us know. We will create one.
Tip 4 – Start Friending People
Once your profile is complete and you have joined some groups, you are ready to start friending other players. Go to the MEMBERS page to search player profiles. Or go to your groups and click on the MEMBERS tab. Don’t be shy. Friending people is the first step to getting to know them. Once you are friends, you can start communicating via Private Messages.
If you are like most players, you will ignore accounts with incomplete profiles. That’s probably a good idea since many of these accounts are inactive. Focus instead on profiles that look real. Remember that you don’t need 100 active friends to play racquet sports. Start with one or two and grow your personal player network from there. Most people don’t have time to maintain an active player network of more than a dozen people anyway. So think quality, not quantity.
If you can find two or three active new friends at your level in your sport and start playing with them regularly, you should consider your time spent here a success.
Join the only network that pays you to play racquet sports.
