Our son has been playing tennis for a while now. He first picked it up in reception year at school, and then we started going on a Friday night for a lesson. Over a year later, this week he had his first proper tennis league match.
We've resisted previously because we didn't want to put him under pressure. But he was keen to be a stand in player this week, and loved playing three matches. Although he didn't win, he definitely tried hard and held his own with every player that was at least a year older than him.
I'm sure he'll keep it up, and being a tennis Mum inside a warm-ish gym is much better that being a football Mum in a cold field!
Linking up with The Reading Residence for word of the week.
