Talking Getting Into Tennis

Just wanted to know if anyone else has caught the tennis bug. My husband and I took our boys to the park and saw some guys playing tennis and that was it. We went to the store and bought rackets and balls and hit the court. We had talked about trying to get into it...well we did. It was really fun, we don't know how to "really" play but the excercise has really given me a boost. We are planning on going back tonight and we will continue to go.

Can any body give me any tips to playing? We looked up the scoring last night (ugh...it's not all that easy to understand, love, 15, 30, 40, duece, advantage, etc...) We don't even know if the rackets we bought are the right ones for our age..lol. We just wanted to do it, we probably should have done a little bit of research but we were in the moment.

Thanks

Re: Getting Into Tennis

I too have slowly started becoming interested in tennis...very slowly. But I want to start playing now too and guess what? It's an outstanding form of exercise. I'm also a bit perplexed by the rules and point system. I know they have Tennis Welcome Centers opening up all over so maybe you can check out the official site for more information to get started.
