What I love about tennis:

I love the competition and the life experiences I have learnt through playing. Many obstacles I have learnt to deal with playing tennis have been invaluable in my overall life and wellbeing. Tennis is a sport that can be played at the highest level and can also be enjoyed at a social level between a parent and their child or friends and associates. Friends made through tennis become friends for life.
