This month in preparation for the spring tennis season and to get us back in the swing of things, we are going to be playing balloon tennis this weekend.
Rather than jumping on the tennis court, we practise several weeks before the courts open with balloons. It gives our much-rested tennis muscles an opportunity to be stretched and warmed up. We have played balloon tennis with all three of this kids since the youngest was three. To add to the difficulty level & to keep the tweens happy, we had two or three more balloons to keep the game interesting.
