    Love It

    My first time playing tennis was when I was in fifth grade I think. I was right awful at it but the game caught my attention. For a year or so I didn't think much about it but when I was in seventh grade, I joined the tennis team at my school. I fell in love with it all over...

    I Just Want To Hit The Ball...!

    as hard as I can, every time. At that moment when the ball hits my strings, hits the sweet spot, I feel like an addict that has gotten their fix. But tennis is a tricky game, especially at 47, and I cannot out slug people like I used to. Somehow so many of them are stronger...

    I started playing tennis my sophomore year of

    high school. I didn't think much of it, just something to pass the time. Now I'm in love with it! I went from never picking a racket up to varsity. I can't wait to play again in the summer! (:

    Fluffy Green Balls

    I love to play tennis, although all the courts are so busy when Wimbledon's on, it's a shame my wrists aren't strong enough for serve and volley, i don't just hit and hope, i'm pretty good at it if i concentrate and don't get distracted. One of my favourite forms of...
