In an effort to really keep up with my goal, I started tennis lessons once a week. I had never played tennis before so it was all new to me. I feel like overall, I'm pretty athletic and in decent shape, but there is something so humbling about starting at the very beginning.
My first lesson was comical, but it started to get better from there. It actually amazes me how practice really works and how a good instructor can help. At first, we learned the different grips and shots and now, our class has finally come to a point where we can play games. It's so much fun to learn something completely new. I'm glad to report that I am loving it!
When I signed up, I did so with 2 other girlfriends. The lessons come in sets of 7, so I have already signed up for the second set and am trying to fit in another day to play in my schedule. It's also fun because it's an 'adult' class, meaning anyone, any age, gender, etc. can take the class. I'm so used to taking fitness classes with all women who are basically all around my age and any type of athletics I did in high school/college everyone was my age so this is such a breath of fresh air. There are all ages in this class and they're all just starting out. It's awesome. One of the best in the class is older than my parents! It just goes to show that age is just a number!
Not going to lie, one of the things that initially drew me to tennis were the outfits. I had grown up golfing, so they're somewhat similar, but tennis gear is a lot cuter, in my opinion. Right now we are playing on clay courts in the 'bubbles', but I can't wait to actually be able to play outdoors and not be so bundled up! I have been doing a lot of tennis shopping, so today I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces. If you have any resources for cute tennis gear that you can share, let me know in the comments!
