I never participated in a organized tennis team growing-up, but I did play this sport for fun. I can't remember exactly the first time I played, but I did start out playing ping-pong or table tennis when I was raised at home. My family bought a ping-pong table, which I would play with everybody at home or with friends that I invited to come over after school. It was smacked in the middle of our living room, which we had different purposes for it when it wasn't used for playing. For example, we would use it as our dinning room table during meals or a place to do homework.
My earliest memory playing tennis would be over at my Aunt's neighborhood. We would practice with these very nice rackets that my Aunt owned and work on our skills before supper-time. It was one of the several good physical workouts our Aunt trained my siblings and I. Another early memory would be playing with some buddies from Middle School, which a friend name Jim would beat me all the time. He ended up playing for the High School we both ended up attending.
Now, I play this sport now-and-then at Morris, more after college since I've gotten more time! I also have began playing racquetball a lot during the long winters to keep the groove on!
I would like to pray more often, but I take advantage when I get the opportunity. During my July 4th 2007 Holiday Week vacation in St. Paul, I played with my Uncle Lou, Aunti Lita, and Sean at a tennis court (scene of my past racism-discrimination incident) along Burns Ave by the intersection of Hwy 61 in East St. Paul....
Did you know there used to be tennis courts by the now existing Regional Fitness Center?
A good place to play in Morris would be the tennis courts by the Morris Area High School along Green River Road.
