Interested in playing tennis? Pamela and Lauren talk Tennis and their Team Experience
When did you start playing tennis?
Pamela: I started playing as a child and picked it up again in my 30’s because the guy that I liked at the time played. What can I say, he was pretty cute.
Lauren: My story is similar in that I played a little as a kid and then picked it up again as an adult because I wanted to do something social.
How did you learn to play?
Pamela: I took lessons as a kid and then took more lessons when I started playing again. Now I like doing 1/2 hour weekly lessons to work on different things. An hour is too much for me.
Lauren: I’ve taken lessons on and off but playing has been a bigger part of my learning.
Why did you start playing tennis?
Pamela: The guy was a big part of the reason.
Lauren: My mother made me play as a kid. I wasn’t really keen on it then but now I am really glad she made me play. Tennis is something that I really enjoy doing as an adult.
How did the two of you meet? Was it on the court?
Pamela and Lauren: We met on the court when we started playing on the team. We’ve been friends ever since.
When did you team form?
Pamela and Lauren: We’re not really sure. The team already existed when we joined and we just carried on. The tennis community really helps to keeps the teams active.
Lauren: Joining Hello Workout is a good way to connect with others interested in playing.
What is the best part of playing on a tennis team?
Pamela: It’s a great way to meet more people who like to have fun and it’s fun to play.
Lauren: The friendships are the best part for me.
How has your relationship evolved since you started playing tennis together?
Pamela: We’ve become great friends over the last few years. In addition to doing some trips and tennis camps together, she dog sits when I’m in a pinch and gives my dog great gifts. My dog loves her too!
Lauren: Our friendship extends off the court and we have become close friends. Although we both enjoy tennis we also like to do non-tennis activities around the bay like wine tasting, watching sports, and we’re always up for a lazy day at the club hanging around the pool.
