My teenager took an interest in tennis this summer. She took lessons and did a week-long camp to learn the basics and was excited to go play, even in the Texas summer heat.
Unlike her four years of Karate (she is a Black Belt), this is an activity that requires a partner to play. I have never played the sport, and am overall not a natural athlete, thus I was not sure I was suited to go knock the ball around. Plus, I did not want to play tennis.
I promised her in June that if she still had an interest in tennis in September that I would take lessons. Last week she joined the Tennis Club at her high school, and is practicing three days a week. I see what comes next.... I am about to become a tennis player
I will start my beginner lessons in either September or October (I need to schedule the classes around my travel schedule, and thus I must choose a month when I am around on the same day each week). There are a couple of local places I can take adult lesson, and then there are leagues and clinics that will follow. I am not sure I am thrilled about this, but I always try to keep my promises.
Have A Great Day.
