Anyone For Tennis? A Day Out At The Park. Hello friends, so how are you today? All good I hope. We have been getting out and about and practicing some tennis.
Getting ready for Wimbledon, you might ask? Ha!!
Anyone For Tennis? A Day Out At The Park:
On a stroll through a nearby park a few weeks ago. My youngest two and me saw some tennis courts. It took me back more years than I care to remember.
I loved playing tennis as a kid, however like many things over the years I seemed to have forgotten all about it.
I had been thinking of something we could do together to keep fit, as the weather is warming up.
My son is getting too fast to go running with me now, so this will keep us altogether nicely. Then he can run as fast as he wants to.
My daughter is not keen on cycling, so after thinking of something we could all do, I thought tennis it shall be.
We borrowed some racquets off my eldest two, to see if we would all enjoy it.
It is a couple of miles to the park, so I cycled there, my son ran and my daughter went on her scooter.
Two Lots Of Exercise In One:
Two lots of exercise in one trip. (Bonus).
We have been regularly over the last few weeks, my son as usual is the best, although hubby when he turns up disagrees!!
As you can see on the pics they cover the full nets up until Wimbledon season, at least that stops it being busy! It has been great fun though. Although my hand eye coordination needs work!!
There is nothing worse that getting to the park and and forgetting your sunglasses!! I can never see the ball coming towards me when the sun is out. That is my excuse.
So here are a few photos from our day:
Good job my husband is off work next week as playing tennis with only 3 of us is not much fun for me. I end up being the ball runner!!
Now where are the strawberries?
