Tennis Kool-Aid

Hi my name is Yvette and I am a tennis-aholic. Your response: “Hi Yvette.”

I start off with this confession because they say admitting you have a problem is the first step to getting help.

Well, I don’t want any help...but thank you so much for the offer.

I have been playing tennis for 15 years and I can go play tennis for hours, then come home and watch it on TV for a few more hours! You see, tennis is a great sport. You can play it indoors or outdoors. You can play the game your entire life. And even if you can’t walk or use your legs you can play wheel chair tennis too!!

And with this obsession of mine it is only natural that one of my kids will join me in my weekly ritual of chasing a little yellow ball trying to make it do things it doesn’t want to!!

My oldest son, Jalen, has decided to join me in the tennis world!! He is on his first team and it is so cute to have this shared love.

He has a new tennis bag. His Coach gave him a tennis racket to use and he has the Rafael Nadal Nike head band. He also has a great serve and the drive to get better.

We have agreed when he is old enough that he and I will play on a mixed doubles team together!

I can’t wait!!
