Labor Day weekend continues to bring new experiences. Today I played tennis for the first time in a looooooong time.
I took lessons as a youngin (all summer, right after golf) but considering the changes in my physical ability, if anything stuck, it was not obvious. The hubs and I volleyed with our friends for a while. I really enjoyed trying to predict where the ball would go, where I should stand and where (on the racket) to hit the ball. I even enjoyed the small amount of running involved, though I also appreciated playing as doubles. I don’t think I would be able to sprint around as much as one does in a singles game. Here I am looking all sporty.
After our volleys, the hubs and one of our friends played a set. These two dudes have been pretty in to tennis for a few months now and are getting good. I think I could help the hubs continue to train, if only as someone to hit wild, unpredictable balls for him to chase.
