Today I did my 1st tennis lesson in a number of years and I survived I split the lesson with my Mum as the class was a 1hr 30 minutes and we both felt it was too long for either of us. We both did 45 mins each which was perfect.
I arrived and looked the part with my tennis bag and switched with my Mum. First of all my tennis lesson didn’t start very well when I got my squash racket out by mistake!!!! I bet the poor other players were thinking who is this crazy player with all the gear.
At the beginning of the lesson I was not hitting all the balls, but I was enjoying myself which was the main thing. I think if you enjoy a hobby you always work harder and get better. Unfortunately in one game I nearly knocked one player out but he ducked his head at just the right time. Poor man. I nearly knocked the coach as well. Apart from that, I had some good shots. !!!!!
To conclude my lesson I realise I need to practice hitting the balls lower and keeping my ball in the court I am playing on and not the court next door. I need to get my serve a little stronger and more consistent which will come with games of tennis.
