How I did it: My cousin and myself are both avid tennis fans. I started tennis 4 years ago but due to a heavy work schedule I had to quit.Then I got subscribed to a gym and next to it was a tennis court. Everyday I said to myself that we should subscribe and finally after a month we did it. We started playing just for fun once every week to reach the level where we can enter a competition now, and yes if you want to play me beware I have a killer of a backhand and a hammer blow serve :) Read how I did it… 1 month ago
Played another game, and sadly all of my lessons have finished. I have such a long way to go though.
It was alright. I do get tired pretty quickly though. Running around the court is hard work!
I worked on serving (major area of deficit) and running to hit the ball. I’m slowly improving in these areas, but still a long way to go yet. P has promised to keep playing with me too. Which I love.
The tennis court is open a lot even when no one is there. So there is an opportunity to simply go there and practice my serve as well as just hitting a ball against the wall.
I won’t have much time in Europe to play, however next year I am definitely very keen to throw myself into tennis with regular playing and regular lessons to help improve.
I definitely want to be able to play a social game with some proficiency by the end of 2013 8 months ago
Played a game with P today, and it was fun, really fun. I wasn’t as bad as I remembered which is excellent.
I do need to practice more, and I’ve been thinking that I need some more specific goals rather then simply “improve my tennis”. I don’t know what they are. Lesson tomorrow :) 8 months ago
I had a lesson yesterday for the first time in two weeks…. and I was rusty.
I need to practice more. Its difficult finding people to play with that are at my level.
Keeping at it for now 9 months ago
Had another lesson and I was surprised at how much I had improved. It is a lot of fun. I am very happy with this goal right now. Its the type of sport that involves fitness but not to an exhausting degree. 10 months ago
Had my first lesson this evening. It was nice, and even though I didn’t want to leave the warmth of the house, I was happy once I got there. I cannot wait to see my tennis and general fitness improve. I had forgotten how good it feels after a bout of exercise. 10 months ago

I just got a reply from the tennis group to call another local tennis club for lessons. I aim to do this on Thursday when I get paid. 13 months ago
I just emailed the guy I had lessons with earlier this year about joining up again. Now that I’m not doing surgery I can put some effort into a goal which isn’t medicine, which will be nice. 13 months ago
