I went to my first tennis practice of the season last night. I actually feel OK this morning. Except for a Saturday session a couple of weeks ago, I haven't played since last year.
The team has changed quite a bit since last year. Several people decided not to come back, and most of those who did moved up to the next level. So at the practice I was one of the "advanced" players, which felt a little strange. I mean, I've never been good (or better) at anything physical except perhaps belly-dancing (which I haven't done on a long time either). Still, it felt good to play. I just wish I felt that way during other types of workouts. At the end of practice we played doubles, to show the beginning players how a match is played, and my partner (who's actually 3.0 but came to practice) and I won. My serve remains problematic but I've improved a lot at least getting them in.
MoBob might play in a mixed doubles league starting in May. Will playing as Team Jihad Love have the same effect on our marriage as when MB tried to teach me how to drive stick? (ie not so great)
