I used to play tennis and it was one of the only sports that I played for quite some time.

I was not brilliant at it, I would say I was mediocre despite having had lessons, and playing for perhaps 10 years at a club. At the time it was probably more of a social thing, and we did it at my school also.

I did try to play tennis in my teens,and was totally dreadful at it,due to early onset arthritis.However I did go on and have a lot more joy with Badminton which I played after school for a year or two on Tuesdays!
We used to have tennis lessons at school, every summer. It was that or athletics and I loathed and detested both :( I am truly unsporty and consider anything like this as a horrendous waste of time. I could have been curled up in the shade reading a book but instead I was in the blazing sun, failing to connect a racket and a ball, whilst getting heat and sunstroke. Miserable.
When I was a teenager our school played a sports day challenge at a private school (i don;t remember which) and I was on our tennis team. I had never played tennis and had no idea what the rules were so it goes without daying that I was rubbish at it.
Yes tennis was my game, played at school and then belonged to the Kensington Tennis Club for a few years...I wasn't half bad at it either! Never played penance though.

I tried to take it up and played for around 6 months - I wasn't very good at it

I have enjoyed a social hit of tennis over the years. My dad played a lot when he was younger so he used to take us out and teach us how to play. Just for fun rather than competition.
I played a lot of tennis when y kids were little but then life for too busy and it kind of fell by the wayside. I did try to play again a couple of years ago but fell and hurt my knee. The knee's buggered now, so no more tennis for me!
Was an Interschool Tennis Player, so was very good at it. Played constantly for about 20 years. Loved it. Played Squash, as well. Something I'm always meaning 'to get back to'. One day!
At boarding school, & I hated it. I just wanted to be the ‘ball boy'
I have probably never seen a worse player than me. This body was not made for sport, it really wasn't :(

Oh! Rice........but you can do what SO many people can't, & that's ride a horse, & THAT's a wonderful accomplishment, because it's YOU, & another living being!

Equestrian Olympic competition is the only one where there's two competitors' in that one is an animal, controlled, usually successfully by one human!
Cheers!
