Are you looking to learn the game of tennis? Tennis is such a fun and it’s a social sport too. You can make friends and enjoy the game with your family. Tennis also reveals and builds character. I have all 3 of my kids in tennis lessons and it has allowed us to lay together on the weekends. My oldest has even made the Varsity Tennis team in high school.
