Re: When did you start playing tennis?

I went to a tennis schhol Jan. 2004 but I improve myself and stick to play 2008.

My Story:

My dad is playing tennis but he started late to this sport. He told me to teach me when I was 10-11 years old but I preferred to play basketball but I've been watching tennis matches since I was 4-5. Anyway, after seeing Sabine Lisicki I wanted to buy the same equipment and play like her and started to beg my dad to teach me how to play.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

My story is lame. Flat, appartment, call it how you want, I lived in these. Concrete, brick wall, I started playing on it in 2007, coz my family was annoying. Practised, more and more, and I'm kinda good now.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

Hi Everyone! I'm new here.

I began playing in high school (late starter) and continued to play in college for recreation. I stopped playing after college and recently started again as a way to meet new people and stay active.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

Like 5/4 years ago. I started learning, playing in my backyard against the wall or on one of thoses things (bad racket) but i dont know where that went.
I was always interested in tennis, always watching the AUS Open on tv.

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

I think I started at like 6 or 7....I had an aunt who worked on racquet assembly at the Wilson factory and she brought me one of the Nancy Richey racquets that she made. I was already interested in sports so she thought I might like to try tennis.

I'm 21 and I'm thinking about starting to play tennis... Are there other people here who started that late?

Re: When did you start playing tennis?

I've started at,around 10-12, and "retired" at 17 or 18, after taking beating from a kid 4 years younger than me. It was stupid, but back then I felt humiliated. I've never touched the racquet since, because I thought that if I suck at something, better not do it at all. It was dumb, and now I'd want to play again, but I have no time, and no one is willing to play with me...
