When I play tennis I have a set of rules I abide by.....
1. Always wear your tennis whites.
2. Play at the same skill level as your opponent. No need to demolish him/her. Play at a pace so you can converse with one another.
3. Always bring cold refreshments to share. One can get thirsty out there.
4. Wear sunscreen.
5. Always pick up balls that go astray.
6. If you don't feel like playing a game, just hit the ball and talk.
These rules should make your next game of tennis enjoyable!
