Tennis Tip of the Month

“FIRST RULE OF TENNIS: Always treat your opponents [and partner] with courtesy and respect.” From USTA Basic Rules of Tennis and Tennis Etiquette

A little humor, courtesy and respect go a long way to improving the play of everyone on the court, and to making you a player everyone is always happy to see on their court. Have fun and play well.
