For the past couple of years I have been talking about wanting to take tennis lessons. Each summer I look into taking lessons and then something always comes up that I end up not doing it. Well this summer I am FINALLY taking tennis lessons. I signed up (paid and locked in) at the Midtown Tennis Club for once a week group lessons during the month of July. My friend Sam, from The New York Blonde, will be joining me in the class. I can not wait!

I took tennis lessons when I was younger. I enjoyed playing, but I particularly did not enjoy outdoor sports– too hot or too cold. I eventually stopped taking lessons but throughout the years I used my parents garage to play against. My dad is a really great tennis player, he played all through college. He wanted my sister and I to at least try it and see if we liked it. We both decided to stick with dance instead. Still I enjoy watching tennis and have been wanting to get back into it as a recreational sport. Something fun that I can play every once in a while with a friend or my dad.

Now that I am the new Serena Williams I need cute outfits to wear to my lessons. Or at least walk around the city in so everyone knows I play. Tory Sport has the cutest tennis activewear collection. I love this skirt and this dress from her line. Really there are so many great items from different brands to choose from. I should probably start with the most obvious accessory… the racket. I own one that is tucked away somewhere at my parents house. It looks like the 90’s– pink and purple spray paint. What can I say, that look was really popular back then. I think it is time to update my tennis gear….. just like I need to update my skills. I am SO excited to start taking lessons and can’t wait to share with you all of the embarrassing stories of me thinking I am better than I actually am.
