Trend Tennis

I haven’t picked up a racquet, much less played tennis, in over 10 years. I used to love it! The feel of the sun as you wait for the serve, the sound the ball makes when it hits the sweet spot. Ah, that was another day and another time….last Tuesday I “practiced” (in surfer shorts and using a borrowed racquet) with my doubles partner for the first time and could barely MOVE on Wednesday~ lol!  Today was the Trend Tournament, starting with an exhibition between one of our company’s presidents and the brother of a ranked pro. My partner and I won our first two matches, making it into the “finals”. But I was hurting, making it difficult to play well (or what passes for “well” from someone who hasn’t played in over a decade).  One of my “serves” actually got lodged in a tree – a tree(!) for goodness sakes. Hey, I may not have much control left but apparently I still have some power. My partner did a great job, although we eventually lost, coming in 2nd. Guess I’ll have to use the prize money to get my own racquet now and practice a bit more for the next game…
