Default Re: Years of experience playing tennis

lol.. You can easily improve, you know? The thing is, once you start hitting some shots like pros do, it really makes you feel special. =) And also the serve, you can always practice that on yoru own time... and its fun hitting serves down the T

I've been playing since I was 10, so that makes it 12+, in which I competed for 6 years, although in the last 3 years I've been too busy so I haven't picked up a racket as much as I would have liked.

I played from the ages of 14 to 24 and haven't played really played in five years now due to having a busy career and personal life. I competed in college in NAIA. I was really fried by 24.

Play tennis is such a broad term...I like to look at it as the ball coming towards me and me chasing it around... a metaphor for life really.

Hee! You remind me of a fella that I had some lessons with that we became friends with. He was a college baseball player for Duke (shortstop and had a batting average of around .289) and was just like - I know the ball and the court- when can I thwack it? So much fun to have a lesson with.

You may be sarcastic in your posts- but the tone of them still reminded me of this great guy and now friend.

Interesting... my tennis instructor is always trying to tell me hitting my backhand has the same body weight distribution as a baseball player setting up to take a swing. But some how I think it's a little different because I don't think baseball players scream and cover their eyes when the ball is thrown in their direction.

Default Re: How long have YOU played?

I used to play tennis when I was a teenager, I had to stop when I was 15 because of back problems (I still have) and knee problems. I've played for 5 years but took lessons 3 years only. I only played for my leisure, I have never player in a competition for my club. I have never hold a racket since, but would love, each time I see live tennis. It's still a great sport to watch and to practrice, but not very good for the health unfortunately.
