Practicing Tennis

Our kids have shown interest in tennis since last year so we promised them that we would enrol them this year.  The Spring season was opened  last week so we went there to see if they would like to play.  As it turned out, they are both interested.  However, it is only opened for 4th and upper grades  so we can only enrol  our daughter.  The coaches   were nice to  have our son practice though.  
We went to Starvaggi tennis court last Saturday and practice with them.  We have two old tennis rackets here that my husband called "vintage" and we used it.  
I love that  they are starting to find the sports that they like.  I told my son that it is okay that he is not  officially  registered this year because of his grade but the good thing is, he will be prepared next year as  he practices with his sister this year.
Rylie and her friend will have tennis matches next month do they  have practices every Wednesday.   They are nervous about it as they have never played before but  we told them to just enjoy the experience.  They will get better as they get older.
The weather is getting warmer so both kids goes in the school parking lot and practices  hitting the ball there.  They even met two kids from the neighborhood who  played with them the other day.

Even though, it is an added expense to play in sports, we don't really mind as it is a great physical exercise and development for them. Teamwork and camaraderie are the biggest lessons they are learning by playing sports like this with other kids.  This is better for them rather than staying at home and playing with their gadgets.  


  1. That is true engaging in sports is not free at all. Aside from that, the schedule could be such a hindrance too.

  2. i truly agree with you, i don't mind of the fees to be paid as long as i know it will benefit for the kid.. my son is into sports too and he's into martial arts

  3. I am sure that you guys enjoyed doing this activity. Well yeah, a cost wouldn't be a problem just as long as the kids and so as the complete family enjoyed it. I find the idea nice too since aside from being able to enjoy your time together you also engage kids to this sports which could be a good help to them in the future.

  4. Sis R, that is awesome that your kids are into sports. It is great for them to keep healthy. My kids never play tennis yet but they love to play volleyball especially when they ere swimming in the pool last summer.

  5. My kids are also trying to find out what sports activity they really like

  6. It's nice that your kids are interested in sports. Mine is interested in swimming.

  7. That's a very nice sports, i love tennis its just that i can't seem to find an indoor court here...good job everyone


It's always a pleasure to read what you have to say! Thank you!
