Tennis League Season 4, Week Two

Posted on October 5, 2009 at 11:50am 0 Comments

This week, I only got to play two out of three of my leagues due to Yom Kippur that fell on Monday evening.

Singles went quite well last week. One thing my hubby has always noted about my game is that I'm not aggressive enough. I definitely try to play pretty safe to make sure my shots are consistent, but that also means fewer winners and longer rallies. But last week, I tried to step it up a bit, with a goal to not be the last court still playing the match, like I usually am. And… Continue

Tennis League Season 4, Week One

Posted on September 28, 2009 at 9:28am 0 Comments

Last week was the first week I played three league matches, and I must say it was a BLAST!

The first night was women's round robin doubles, and definitely the longest night of tennis, as it is a guaranteed three matches. I found that my net game had suffered some loss of confidence, as I just didn't feel good about my volleys. My serves were pretty good during the first set, including getting an ace based on deliberately placing it away from the receiver. Unfortunately, my arm got a… Continue

Tennis League Season 4, Gearing Up for a Busy One

Posted on September 16, 2009 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Maybe it was the cancellation of my last season of singles. Maybe it was the surprising love of doubles thanks to subbing a few times. Maybe it was the desire of wanting to play on the same side as my hubby for a change, instead of always practicing against each other.

Maybe all three of these were what led me to signing up for not one, not two, but three different leagues for this season. I'm going to be playing 2.5 women's singles and doubles, and also 3.5 mixed doubles. Three… Continue

Tennis League Season 3 Subbing for Doubles

Posted on July 7, 2009 at 7:02pm 0 Comments

Sadly, my singles league was canceled just after the first week for this season due to only four people signing up, and then another one dropping after the start.

Luckily, the league coordinator gave my information as a substitute for doubles, so this week, I played my first doubles match. My husband gave me a lot of practice volleying and hitting cross court which came in pretty handy last night. It's Round Robin doubles, and the scores for my teams were 6-0, 5-6, and 6-5. Not too… Continue

Tennis League Season 3, Match 1

Posted on June 17, 2009 at 1:03pm 1 Comment

It's that time again. This league season is a bit of a change for me, as I am now playing in the AM instead of the PM. Why? By mid July, at 6pm, it will be sunny and over 100° outside, and that is just a bit too hot for my blood. The evening league ended up canceling anyway, probably because a lot of people had the same temperature factor in mind that I did.

Before my first league, I had a little practice with another gal the night before. I broke my two main goals in tennis - not… Continue
