It's been a while since I wrote a real and proper tennis update!
Honestly not too much to tell. Still practicing and working hard to improve.
We had (!) a clinic Saturday morning. Apparently me and another lady didn't get the email that it was cancelled so we both showed up and no instructor!. So, we decided to just volley around and play one set. It was good practice but the weather is getting so hot here and the humidity too so we were drenched after an hour. We decided to call it quits after that. I lost, naturally. but did manage to get a couple of games here and there. I think it ended up with her winning 6-3 and we only managed that one set.
Last night, was really good though. We were predicted to get some pretty strong storms roll through South Louisiana yesterday, so I had mentally checked tennis off my list for last night and planned to go to the gym and finally get back to some elliptical instead. But, the rain and storms never materialized so I had to get back in the right frame of mind for tennis instead. (It wasn't hard to do! LOL). Anyway, Ronnie (the tennis pro at the Y) paired us all up and this time around we were all pretty much on an even playing field experience wise. We had 2 very close sets and it took about 2 solid hours to do. Very exciting stuff. We lost 6-4; 6-3 but had such a good time that we all exchanged numbers and added each other to facebook and plan on getting together again for practicing. They may also be joining me for some clinics here and there that I attend.
I already know that Thursday night's clinic is cancelled as well as Saturday's. Ronnie is judging the High School State Tennis Tourney and they have another tournament this weekend at the Y. So I'll have to see if maybe I can rent the ball machine or maybe practice with the other ladies to get my tennis fix in this week.
Since this is a very boring and no picture-filled post
