Last night I played tennis for the first time in over five years. Oh, how I missed it!
I went with a friend over to play at the MIT courts because they have lights, and it was late in the evening. However, 1/2 of the courts were being resurfaced and had no nets, so competition for the remaining five courts with nets was fierce. We wound up playing on a netless court, but it was still good to run around and smack the balls. Gotta love tennis.
I blame the rush to the courts on Wimbledon. The annual grass-court affair just oustide of London that made Andre Agassi tone down his look back in the day. Every time there's a major tournament, the courts pack up. Alas. Next time we're going to book a court ahead of time, which you can do.
