Today, I played tennis for the first time in 20 years, and I’m hooked for life. The drive to Elite River Glen took only 10 minutes, but mustering up the courage to walk through the door and pick up a racquet took decades longer. The last time I played tennis was the summer before 5th grade through the Whitefish Bay Rec Department. I moved on quickly to other interests but somewhere in the back of my mind, I always thought that tennis may have been “the sport that got away.” So, when I heard about the Mom’s Tennis Group at Elite, and how it’s for beginners and seasoned players alike, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to rekindle my relationship with the sport. Once you know the Who, What, Where, When and Why about this group, chances are you’ll want in on it too!
It’s no accident, I think, that tennis uses the language of life. Advantage, service, fault, break, love, the basic elements of tennis are those of everyday existence, because every match is a life in miniature. Even the structure of tennis, the way the pieces fit inside one another like Russian nesting dolls, mimics the structure of our days. Points become games become sets become tournaments, and it’s all so tightly connected that any point can become the turning point. It reminds me of the way seconds become minutes become hours, and any hour can be our finest. Or darkest. It’s our choice.” ― Andre Agassi, Open
