Saturday we hit the tennis courts. I haven't even held a racquet in at least ten years, despite my mom's constant encouragement to take up a "social sport." Court's a pro, so I asked for a couple pointers before we got started. Check out the vid!
Ok, so looking back at it, I don't think I was quite so stylish, but it turned out I had more skill than I had anticipated, so that was good at least. We kept a volley (is that the right term?) going pretty smoothly until I'd randomly decide to lose control and whack the ball over the fence. This happened more than a few times, but Court insisted I was "really good"....for a beginner.Umm yeah, did I mention Court is SIX MONTHS preggo? I don't even look this good when I have a food baby. Fail.
I had a lot of fun playing tennis, even though my technique has quite a lot to be desired. I think I've found my social sport, y'all! I can totally see myself getting competitive with it too. (You wanna step to this Ramona? Invite me to play a game on the next season of The Housewives of New York and see what happens.) Now all I need is a buddy in NYC to battle me on the court. Who's down?! I'm open to free lessons too ;) Ohh, remember this workout sesh I had with Serena Williams? Call me, girl!
So tell me: Do you play a social sport like tennis or golf? Are you on a sports team? If not, has there been something you've been wanting to try? Just DO IT!
