#100happydays Day 43 Cross Training Tennis Doubles
6:30 in the morning on a Friday before the “long” Canada Day weekend. There could be no better day to call our husbands out of bed to cross-train with us on the tennis court!
Of course none of us know how to play tennis other than that you use a racket to hit a yellow ball over the net somewhere in the vicinity of your opponent. We have a dozen tennis balls and about half of them bounce, we also only have tree tennis rackets, but we do have one squash racket that seemed to do the trick.
All of us have either sore shoulder or knees. I’m sure we were quite a sight, hobbling around the court and grimacing in pain after the occasional wrenching swing. It’s a good thing that most of the neighbors around the court were still asleep. All except the tennis instructor who showed up with a student. Our balls were flying everywhere but he polity hit them back to us and let us know that his balls had green dots on them so they couldn’t be confused with ours (despite that ours didn’t bounce). Somehow they managed to keep their 50 or so balls with the green dots in their court, ours just had minds of their own and traveled everywhere.
After swing and missing, chasing balls for an hour and laughing a lot, it was back to the house for coffee and ice packs. Thanks guys, for coming out to play.
