My favourite sport is tennis. Tennis is a sport in what each player uses a racket that is strung to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net into the opponent's court. I started playing tennis when I was 8 years old because my parents enrolled me in a course. Firstly I didn’t like it a lot because I didn’t hit the ball since the racket was very huge for me. But along the years I have improve a lot and now I love it. I don’t have much time because I have a lot of exams but I try to get some time always because to play tennis is a good way for getting rid of stress.
I like everything about playing tennis; nonetheless I don’t like to watch tennis matches. The more I see tennis matches less I like it because it bored me alot. However I went to “La Casilla” to watch a benefit match of Verdasco and Nadal five years ago, I bored a lot but I don’t regret going because as a consequence of going I know Verdasco and Nadal who are very good tennis players. I strongly believe that to play tennis has a lot of benefits such as the risks of illnesses are less, it improves your coordination, the stress decreased… Besides it entertains you and you enjoy a lot. Thus I think that in spite of you can injure it worth you.
I advice to people, who want to take it up try to going to somewhere for instance to “El Fango” to take lessons, where they are very cheap and you only have to carry a racket and wear properly clothes. If I where they I will wear leggings o a sport skirt, a comfortable shirt and adequate trainers. And about the racket I would advice they to go to Decathlon and to ask for it, due to there they recommend you what is the best racket for you.
To sum up, I encourage everyone to play tennis. I assure you that you will enjoy it a lot. Don’t worry if firstly you don’t do well, finally if you practice you will do fine. The more you practice the more you improve.
